Does your idea of a perfect vacation day include the sound of registers going ka-ching?
While the stunning beauty of the Adirondack and Lake George region is a powerful lure for many who visit the area each year, the area also has another major attraction: great Lake George shopping!!
Lake George Village – Kitschy Treasures and Trends
Just a short drive or trolley trip from the Quarters, you can stroll down Canada Street in Lake George and explore the many diverse shops there. You can find everything from souvenir t-shirts to dancing hula girl statues to fine porcelain collectibles, jewelry, and everything in between. There are sundries and clothing stores for those items that somehow failed to make it into your suitcase, and lots of fun shops filled with riotous colors and lively souvenirs. No Lake George shopping trip is complete without a fun day checking out the scenery in the Village.
Outlets = Savings in Lake George
Plan a visit to the Lake George “Million Dollar Half Mile” where over 80 name brand factory outlets make this area a well-known shopper’s mecca.
You’ll have no trouble finding that special memento or the bathing suit you forgot to pack. It’s all here in the Lake George outlets — designer name apparel, house wares, footwear, children’s clothing, toys, clocks, dishes, leather goods and more all within walking distance of each other. Dedicated bargain hunters will find this Half Mile of stores a veritable shopper’s paradise.
Park your car in one of several ample-sized lots and begin to explore. Check out women’s and men’s wear in the shops of some of the most famous designers in the country. There’s famous name intimate apparel for women, top-brand shirts for men. Stock up on jeans in a store featuring the biggest name in denim and casual wear. Buy a new pair of dancing shoes, get a great bargain on athletic footwear, or pick up some boots for a hike along an Adirondack trail. With a selection of brand-name children’s outlets, even the kids can get in on the shopping fun.
When the family is outfitted, browse among the many stores that cater to the home. You’ll find silver and stainless table settings, dishes, bedding and towels, wicker furniture and home decor. Give yourself the gift of time with a stately grandfather clock, or pick up a collectible for a favorite aunt. And there’s everything for the kitchen, from small appliances to cookware to the most unusual gadgets.
After a full day of Lake George shopping, sit back and relax in a nearby restaurant with a sumptuous dinner or just a drink and appetizer. Or, head back to The Quarters, where you can take a soothing soak in the Jacuzzi while you plan your next day’s outing.
