I've spent a lot of time in Lake George, especially the village and I can't believe I've never heard of this strange phenomenon. I feel like the tourists know something that I don't know and I will 100% try this the next time I'm up there.

If you're familiar with Lake George Village, then you should be familiar with the compass to the side of it. Apparently, something about this compass causes a very strange phenomenon. Have you heard of this?

What you have to do is stand in the exact middle, over the "X." Apparently, it is incredibly important that you are directly in the middle, directly on the "X" or this trick won't work. Once you're standing on the "Lake George Mystery Spot," according to Only In Your State,you'll immediately hear your voice echo. Be warned, no one else can hear this echo so people around might think you're a little off screaming to yourself.

The strange part of the whole thing is that there really isn't a scientific reason for it. Some think it has to do with the placement of the mountains around the compass, others say it has to do with the nearby small wall and the exact distance you are. All I know is that this is a pretty cool trick and I'm gonna have to give it a try the next time I'm up there!
