Fireworks – No better spot to see them!

May 17th, 2013 by James Hood

fireworksThe Village of Lake George has fireworks on the Fourth of July and every Thursday after that for the rest of the summer. The fireworks are launched from a barge just a few hundred yards offshore. They light up the lake and the noise echoes of the surrounding mountains. One word: spectacular.

The Fort William Henry Hotel has the best view of the lake. Therefore, the FWH Hotel the best view of the fireworks.

Don’t fight for parking a half dozen blocks away. Don’t fight the traffic after it’s over. Don’t lug chairs (with kiddies it tow) like a herd of cattle.

View the fireworks with us. Park in our large lot. Sit on our landscaped lawn or on one of our wicker chairs on the Veranda. Enjoy a cocktail at the Veranda Bar and take in the amazing show. Doesn’t that sound so much nicer?  Ooh and aah if you agree…

If you are staying in one of our lake view rooms, you have a clear view of the show right from your room. It would be like your very own private fireworks show!! How romantic is that?

Book your room online or by calling 1-800-234-0267.

When you think of fireworks, think of the Fort William Henry Hotel. You can’t beat it. You just can’t.

Where’s the Love this Valentine’s Day?!

A quick review of the Wikipedia entry about Valentine’s Day provides a daunting view for the holiday’s future. Oh, there will always be a Valentine’s Day, but where’s the love?!

Valentine’s Day has been associated with romance and lovers since the Middle Ages. By the 15th century, it was common practice to send flowers, candy and hand-written notes or cards with heartfelt expressions of love.

According to the U.S. Greeting Card Association, an estimated 15 million e-valentines were sent online in 2010. We can only hope that most of those were sent by grandparents to their grandkids or friend to friend… co-worker to co-worker.

Where’s the love in “Have a Smurfy Valentine’s Day”?
