Welcome to Lake Champlain.
Accept our invitation to soak up the splendor of autumn in the Lake Champlain Region. As the landscape ignites into a profusion of color, you can enjoy sparkling vistas of awesome beauty. The tapestry of color doubles when reflecting off the water of our many lakes and ponds.
Visibility is endless during the clear, brisk days of autumn. Consider a hike to the top of one of the summits overlooking the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain for miles of breathtaking views. Or drive to the top of Fort Ticonderoga’s Mount Defiance for a bird’s eye perspective of America’s history.
Fire towers on both Belfry and Poke-O-Moonshine mountains display vibrant 360-views over a mix of topography: mountains, lakes, and farm fields. Perhaps you’d rather immerse yourself in the color, scents, and sounds of the forest with one of the wooded trails.
The cooler days of autumn are perfect cycling weather. Try out one of the many Adirondack Coast Bikeways themed loops. Plenty of scenic rest stops along the routes offer opportunity to recharge while appreciating the season.
Sounds of the Season
It’s a great season for most of our outdoor recreation. However you spend your day, keep an eye to the sky for our annual migratory visitors. As part of the Eastern Atlantic Flyway, the southbound Vs of Snow and Canada geese, add a special musical ambience. Birders delight to spot numerous other species passing through or arctic birds moving in for their winter vacation.
Celebrate the Harvest
Numerous farm stands and farmers’ markets offer the fresh produce of the season. Find that perfect pie or decorative pumpkin. Sip cider or pick your own apples right from the trees of a local orchard. What tastes better in fall than a piece of hot apple pie? Savor the fresh autumn flavors from one of the many restaurants featuring local produce and products.
Our wide variety of lodging properties are prepared to make your stay extra special. Come for a visit and see why we love autumn along the Adirondack Coast.
