Rain on your parade?

Though Lake George is typically best enjoyed on summer days where you can soak up the sun, sometimes the weather is simply not in our favor. Lucky for you, there are several shops and museums you can visit in the area until the sun returns!

Looking to do a little shopping on your trip? Want to bring your loved one the perfect souvenir? For a selection of chocolate and flowers, take a short drive and visit The Country Florist and Gifts in Ticonderoga. For a taste of history in Ticonderoga, pay a visit to the Ticonderoga Historical Society and explore the gift shop after learning about the Hancock House – which is packed with photographs, artifacts and books regarding the history of Ticonderoga.

Just a few minutes down the road from us is Juniper Designs & Gifts where you can find stationary, gifts, home décor and clothing. You can also find games, greeting cards, handbags and jewelry. Visit Hague Market while you’re in the area to grab a bite to eat.

A longer drive to the Village of Lake George will bring you to a plethora of shops for tourists and locals alike to enjoy. Get an I ❤ Lake George sweater to represent our beautiful area.

On Canada Street, there is Nina’s Sweet Shoppe where you can satisfy your sweet tooth with one-of-a-kind high quality desserts and candies.
