Under $100 / North America

It’s easy enough to spend a day in this favorite vacation destination without going over budget!


Start your day with breakfast at Caffe Vero Coffee. The roastery-meets-café offers breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, French toast, omelets, homemade bagels and more, as early as 6:30 a.m. Snagging breakfast for less than $15 is incredibly easy, even if you do decide to treat yourself.


After breakfast, it’s time to explore the area’s winter wonders. Winter hiking is easily accessible if you have the right gear (snowshoes are a must!). Check out the Lake George 12ster list of 12 can’t-miss mountains to pick a hike according to your skill level. The hiking is free, but if you do need to rent a pair of snowshoes or you want to book a snowshoeing tour, you can do so starting at just $5 with regional vendors such as Natural Stone Bridge and Caves.


Refuel with lunch at 163 Taproom, where you find not only an extensive list of craft beers, but also a long list of paninis, burgers, soups, tacos and more, most for less than $15.


Warm up indoors with a bit of browsing at Factory Outlets of Lake George. Find a range of favorite retailers offering outlet deals on brands such as Vera Bradley, Michael Kors, Adidas, Coach, L.L. Bean, Brooks Brothers and others.


To start your evening on a celebratory note, visit one of Lake George’s iconic ice bars. There are a range of ice bars to choose from, located around the area at resorts, restaurants and public spaces, but all are sure to delight with tasty cocktails despite the frigid temperatures.


If you happen to visit the ice bar at Gaslight, you can end your day there with dinner. The restaurant offers a large menu of American favorites, but is particularly known for its wood-fired pizzas.

While fidget toys can work in a pinch, sometimes you just want more. If you’ve tried to keep your mind clear and your hands busy with things like adult coloring books, and you’ve found that still doesn’t do much for you (all that pressure to stay inside the lines!), you might want to try the Buddha Board.
