Lake George attractions - Adrenaline
Oh, I love parasailing! The view, the rush, the fresh air, you have to try this at least once! Those two companies are located right in the middle of Lake George village.
Lake George Skydiving
Skydiving is not for everyone, but believe me: if you have the guts to make the decision, book the jump and get up that morning, you'll have the best time of your life. To this day, I haven't met anyone who had the courage to jump and that didn't want to get right back in the plane the second they touched ground after that first - scary - jump.
Even now, I am still scared each time the door opens. But the moment I've made it out of the airplane, all worries are gone.
