The big day is approaching and you have one more thing to plan: your bachelorette party. A great way to keep the party fun for everyone is to plan it around trying something new. Choose something to do as a group that will be unique and memorable. Try a winery or restaurant you haven’t been to before, take a class to learn a new activity together, explore the local sights for a day, or spend the weekend at a spa or camping out in style. If you’re having trouble thinking of a unique place to throw your event, Lake George has plenty of locations to turn your night out or weekend away from a party into an immersive experience.

Want to keep things simple and throw a dinner party overlooking the water? Book a private event or reserve a large table at one of Lake George’s many restaurants. Lake George Beach Club offers a spacious deck overlooking the water and live music events if you want to meet up for a nice dinner together. If you want to arrange for a private event, book The Adirondack Room, which also looks out over the lake. They serve classic fare like burgers, tacos, pasta, and fish.

Villa Vero, managed by RGI catering, hosts private parties as well, with options for theme parties and special activities, like photo booths, DJs, games, and trivia. They have many different bar, buffet, station, and dessert options, and their venue is right across Canada Street from Shepard Park in the heart of the Village.


Go out for an evening of wine at Adirondack Winery’s tasting room in Lake George Village. Try their locally-made wines and sample cheese, chocolate, and other items. They also offer party packages, complete with souvenirs for both the bride-to-be and the attendees.

More interested in craft beer than wine and want your party to be a low-key event? Meet up for an evening of local brews at Bolton Landing Brewing Company. They have indoor and outdoor seating and offer a selection of traditional pub fare.

Want to go somewhere away from the bustle of Lake George tourism and into the country? Take a group tour and tasting at Springbrook Farm Distillery. Situated on 200 acres, the distillery produces several varieties of spirits, including vodka, gin, and limoncello. They also have beautiful grounds and a patio for a relaxing drink with your friends.


Like the idea of spending a spa day with your best friends? Book a day of spa treatments at Body Relief Day Spa in Queensbury. Take your mind off wedding planning stress with a fun and relaxing day of wraps, facials, and manis/pedis.

Thinking about going away for a whole weekend? You can book a small group getaway at The Sagamore and spend the weekend at their spa. The resort is located on its own island on Lake George and comes with stunning views of the water and the Adirondacks. The Spa & Salon at The Sagamore offers a full slate of spa treatments and massages for a relaxing and rejuvenating trip, as well as a hair, nail, and makeup salon for pre-wedding makeovers.

Lake George Steamboat Company


There are several ways to explore the waters of Lake George. Lake George Waterfront Cruises offers tours of the lake on their two boats, the Horicon and the Adirondac. If you’re having a large party, you can book a private cruise. You can also join one of their many scheduled cruises and then arrange to have a private dinner party at their lakefront restaurant.

The Lake George Steamboat Company is another option for a fun afternoon on the water. They have three large steamboats and also offer charters and private parties. Not looking to book a private event? They offer many regular and specialty cruises you can book tickets for, and all three boats offer food and cocktail bars on board.

Thinking about setting sail in a smaller vessel? Rent a boat from one of Lake George’s many marinas and explore the lake on your own. They offer everything from pontoons to speedboats, and often have waterskis, tubes, wakeboards, and other accessories available to make the experience even more fun.


An inexpensive and fun bachelorette party idea is to simply spend a day at one of Lake George’s many beaches. Have a picnic, swim in the lake, and catch some rays. You can opt for one of the more popular beaches, like Million Dollar Beach at the southern end of the lake, which features grills and volleyball nets, or head north to a more secluded beach and avoid some of the crowds.


Love yoga? Attend a class at Hot Yoga Queensbury or book a private lesson. This is a good way to check out hot yoga for the first time if you and your friends have been considering it, and a great way to get in shape before the wedding. Your bachelorette party might even turn into an activity you do together on a regular basis.


Love sports and adventure? Explore the Adirondacks as a group while trying a new activity. Spend a day completing obstacle courses at Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course. Climb and zipline through the trees for a fun and memorable experience with your friends. They also offer group discounts and private weekday group bookings, as well as an area for picnicking.

Love horses and want to see the Adirondacks from a new perspective? Book a group horseback ride at one of the area’s many local stables or dude ranches and explore some scenic trails on beautiful horses. If you’re looking for an outing with a meal, Mountain View Rocking B Ranch offers horseback dinner rides where you and your friends can enjoy a meal after riding to a scenic point. If you’re looking for something with a little more excitement, you can plan a trip to the Painted Pony Rodeo for a night of BBQ and horses.

If watersports are your thing, and your friends are up for an adventure, try a group whitewater rafting trip on a local river. There are several Lake George area businesses that specialize in whitewater rafting and other river sports, like kayaking, tubing, and canoeing.

Want to enjoy the great outdoors but would rather relax than try a new sport? Go camping at one of Lake George’s many campgrounds or islands. If you don’t wish to stay overnight, you can arrange to spend the day at a Day Use Island and picnic, play games, and enjoy nature. If you want to spend the night in the woods but not everyone in your group relishes the idea of traditional camping, try glamping. There are many options, ranging from spacious tents to comfortable cabins.

These are just a handful of the options Lake George has to offer. Whether the outing is relaxing or full of adventure, find an activity that all your friends will enjoy, and your bachelorette party will be a unique experience they’ll never forget.
