Labor Day weekend. Thurs-Monday

Hi We are heading up to LG in a few days for the long weekend. Haven't been to LG since I was a child. Now I'm coming with my hub and 6 year old daughter! I'm a bit bummed however, because it seems like the weather outlook is rather cool, and may rain on Sunday. I'm hoping that Saturday is warm enough to hit the lake for swimming, a boat, or jet skis.

I've been researching the web for things things to do here and also have the LG visitors guide. However, I always prefer to hear suggestions from locals or long time regulars when visiting someplace new.

We are staying in a place with indoor and outdoor pool, and I am aware of a Great Escape indoor waterpark as well as their amusement park. I'm mainly Wondering what other INDOOR fun activities are good in LG with a 6 year old. If it rains, I want to be prepared with several options for my daughter who gets bored pretty easily. 🙄

Lake George Lanes and Games has bowling, plus an indioor playground and other activities that will be good for that age.

Great suggestions above! Don't understimate a 6yo's desire to spend time in the pool. The water will likely feel warm in comparison to the air temperature.

Some other suggestions:

Up Yonda Farm http://www.upyondafarm.com

World Awareness Children's Museum http://www.worldchildrensmuseum.org

Natural Stone Bridge and Caves http://stonebridgeandcaves.com

CAN I go visit the Caves with 3 and 1 year old? Is it stroller friendly or is it better to take 1 year old in a carrier? Is it even possible for kids to go there? Sorry, do many question:)

Per their website:

Tour Health Restrictions:

Natural stone steps make it impossible for strollers (we rent backpacks) and not advisable for anyone with a health problem that prohibits climbing up/down uneven steps.

Several activities are available for those who cannot do our tour, including: rock & mineral shop, 30min PBS video entitled “Under the Adirondacks” and an Adirondack Memories Museum.

A complete list of additional activities is located in the Park Activities.

Fishing is not allowed, but special fish food can be purchased to feed trout in the fishpond.

Due to the nature of the confined spaces and walkways, Therapy Dogs and Emotional Support Animals are NOT ALLOWED on the tour or in the buildings.

Only Service Animals are allowed on the tour and throughout the park facilities.

Thank you. We will go there Saturday I guess. Sunday will be wet so not a good idea.
