  1. I can’t believe Lake George, New York wasn’t included in your nine best lake towns article. The cleanest and most stunning lake in the US. Thirty two miles of non polluted waters. Camping on the islands of the lake as well as many other local locations. Gourmet dining and many resorts, the most spectacular being the Sagamore Resort in beautiful Bolton Landing. Perhaps you should add this to your areas to explore in your next travel article,
