A Capital Region area lake has been named the most beautiful in America.

Lake George placed number 1 on the list of The 6 Most Beautiful Lakes in the U.S. according to the Oyster.com site. As a regular visitor to the Lake George area each summer, it's clear to see how the lake could top the list. Lake George is a year-round destination, but summertime is the most popular with tourists. It's always a fun summer vacation spot for me that offers many different activities including swimming, boating, and parasailing. Other options in the area other than the lake include golfing, horseback riding, hiking in the Adirondacks. Another upstate New York lake, Lake Placid, also made the list taking the number 3 spot.

Here are the top 3:

1. Lake George, New York

2. Lake Tahoe, California

3. Lake Placid, New York
