- a unique blend of striking scenic beauty, endless outdoor recreational opportunities and celebrated heritage.
In the Lake Champlain Region winter through spring we embrace our heritage. From now through the spring take part in one of our events at Fort Ticonderoga, celebrating the early days of the region and the incredible historic events that took place during the battles for our freedom. Winter doesn't stop the folks at The Fort who are always anxious to share our region's deepest roots in colonial history. You can even make colonial clothing in hands-on workshops!
Cultural events line the calendar along with ice fishing and events on the lake. Intimate piano recitals or an art exhibit are the norm and are often attended by the many locals who support the large art community in the region. These are great opportunities to meet local residents and get some insider information and tips! As the lake becomes solid, ice fishing is king in the Lake Champlain Region. So, keep your eyes on the calendar. Ice conditions dictate whether ice fishing derbies pop up and when.
