About Us

Print Friendly

The Free George is the premiere online magazine and visitors’ guide of Upstate NY, from Albany to Lake Placid, including Saratoga, the Lake George region & the Adirondacks. It’s where you want to be when you want to get up-to-date information, interviews, articles, reviews and listings on arts, entertainment, events, dining, local businesses, the great outdoors and so much more!

We average 36,000 visitors per month to our website & we’re constantly growing.

At The Free George, we won’t charge you to access our website. Nor will we block you from reading our articles with pesky little print-version only signs. The Free George is just like our name says–free, like a free press, but much more. It’s fun, it’s smart, it’s timely, it’s entertaining–it’s George!

The magazine focuses on the following counties in NY state, as well as its surrounding areas: Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Washington, Warren, Hamilton and Essex. For more specialized area-related information, check out our NEW CITY BLOGS section, our newest endeavor here at the mag, where you’ll find blogs with articles relating specifically to the areas we cover, as well as blogs for additional areas throughout NY state, VT, CT, MA, including NYC & Boston.

Isn’t it time you got Georged?
