Discover Unique Places to Propose in the Glens Falls Region

Pop the Question & Make Memories at a Special Spot

Valentine's Day might have you thinking about the Big Question. Once you've purchased the perfect ring you'll need the ideal place to propose, and we've got some great suggestions! Pro tip: You don't necessarily need to propose on or around Valentine's Day. When looking at the below recommendations think about what time of year might be best for you.

Crandall Park

Crandall Park is perfect for an afternoon picnic and proposal by the pond. With three bridges connecting the islands in the pond, Crandall Park is a picturesque spot to propose. Maybe even to return here to have your professional engagement photos taken!

The Hyde Collection

The Hyde boasts one of the best art collections north of New York City. Take advantage of the museum's setting in a romantic mansion to propose in front of your partner's favorite painting or on one of the benches in the Hyde's lush garden.  

Pilot Knob Preserve

Take a hike at the Schumann Preserve at Pilot Knob and make your way to the gazebo at the top. If you're lucky, you'll be the only ones there for the special moment. Consider timing it with a gorgeous sunset view of Lake George!

Adirondack Balloon Flights by SunKiss Ballooning

Hot air ballooning is a popular pastime in the Glens Falls region. You could pop the question at the annual Adirondack Balloon Festival in September, or you could take it up a notch and propose on an actual hot air balloon. Adirondack Balloon Flights by SunKiss Ballooning can help make that happen.

The Lake George Steamboat Company

Take a cruise on one of the Lake George Steamboat Company's historic steamboats and propose on Lake George, surrounded by panoramic water and mountain views. They also do weddings, so you could keep the theme going and later plan your wedding on a cruise!

Prospect Mountain

Prospect Mountain is one of the most popular hiking trails in Lake George. Hike to the top together, or drive up the Veterans Memorial Highway for a mountaintop proposal. The highway is typically open from late May through Veterans Day and it's $10 per car to drive up.

Hovey Pond Park

Hovey Pond Park in Queensbury has several ideal spots where you could pop the question: by the pond, on their fishing dock, among the floral gardens, or along the marshland walkway (maybe just avoid the playground, which is easy to do - it's sectioned off).

Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor

The Great Escape in Queensbury has multiple spots that would be great for a proposal: the walking bridge, the Sky Ride, or in front of your favorite roller coaster. Just maybe don't propose while on an actual roller coaster - you would not want to lose the ring!

Cooper's Cave

Take your favorite person to where fiction meets history and add your own story to the history books! Cooper's Cave inspired author James Fenimore Cooper to write one of his most famous novels, The Last of the Mohicans. The cave rests under Cooper's Cave Bridge, which connects Glens Falls to South Glens Falls.

West Mountain

Propose at West Mountain in Queensbury at any time of the year. If you're skiers, you could take the lift to the top just in time to propose at sunset before heading down the mountain an engaged couple (to perhaps celebrate with family or friends at the bottom!).
