One common Memorial Day weekend activity is to head up to Lake George and experience the beauty of the Adirondacks. This year, you still can, but it’s going to look a little different.

Lake George is still trying to be your Memorial Day weekend destination. If you’re headed up there this weekend, here are a few things you should know to expect according to News10.

  • Hotels, inns, motels, etc are opening but they will have strict sanitation practices and some will have reduced occupancy. Guests will have to wear masks, social distance, and sanitize
  • Most hiking and bike trails will be open. The Pinnacle Trail and the Schumann Preserve at Pilot Knob, have been closed due to overcrowding
  • Marinas are open, kayaking and motorized boat rentals are available
  • Beaches in Bolton Landing will be open, as will Million Dollar Beach
  • Restaurants are take-out or delivery only, local craft beverages included
  • Grocery stores, liquor stores, and pharmacies are open
  • Farmers’ markets are open
  • There will be a Memorial Day dedication at noon on Saturday in Shepard Park but no parades or ceremonies will be held this year

Warren County Tourism Director Joanne Conley said, “This is a great time to explore the hidden gems of Lake George and our surrounding communities. Venture to the Town of Lake Luzerne for paddling. Check out the Tri-Lakes area of Chestertown, Pottersville and Brant Lake, offering miles of scenic roads for cycling, or hike the Chester Challenge. Head to North Creek for an outdoor recreation paradise and discover river sports and challenging hiking trails.’’
