The road to Lake George begins in Glens Falls, about 10 mi south and east of Adirondack Park's formal boundary, 194 mi north of New York City and 48 mi north of Albany. With a population of more than 15,000 in the city and about 25,000 more in surrounding communities (Queensbury and Hudson Falls), Glens Falls is the only close-to-urban area in this part of the state. One good reason to visit is the Hyde Collection of art, which was started by a prominent Glens Falls family.
