Tourism Department Overview:
To position the Lake George Area as an iconic vacation destination and “Original Vacation,” the Warren County Tourism
Department has consistently created vibrant and innovative year-round brand awareness and thematic campaigns to generate
demand, interest and visitations.
Located in the southern part of the Adirondacks, the Lake George Area is perfectly situated within a day’s drive for more than
60 million people, and is in an enviable geographic location with its primary travel corridors of I-87 enticing visitors from the north
and south, and I-90 bringing visitors from the east and west.
With its primary market encompassing the Metro New York/New Jersey DMA and secondary markets in Connecticut, Massachusetts,
Montreal, Quebec, northern Pennsylvania and Western New York, the Lake George Area has been a generational and perennial
vacation favorite of families for decades, inviting visitors to enjoy the natural beauty, outdoor recreation and unique experience that
can only be found as part of their “Original Vacation.” Demographical targets for the region include women averaging 50+ years of
age as the primary vacation decision makers followed by Millennial parents and Gen Z-ers entering the workforce. Outreach and
marketing tactics are adapted to changing media consumption habits.
The overall tourism communications strategy combines an integrated marketing campaign of high-performing traditional advertising
and digital media highlighting the natural beauty of the area. Additionally, targeted campaigns and niche market development also promote
the vast array of annual events, and myriad activities that offer something for everyone! Destination marketing decisions are based on
research, market trends, data analytics, industry standards and performance tracking.
