Not one to play in the cold? How about a little sight-seeing? Take in the hundreds of ice shanties dotting the coastline. Grab a warm beverage and cuddle up with a fleece blanket as you gaze out at the Lake from an historic Inn.
A visit to Lake Champlain wouldn't be complete without a stop at its famous historic sites. Some of the most significant battles of the Revolutionary War took place along the lake at the Forts of Ticonderoga and Crown Point, of which both were regional strongholds. Artillery and war-era relics still reside in local museums. During the summer, treasure hunters and explorers can plunge into the depths of Lake Champlain, and scuba diving tours will show you the preserved artifacts leftover from the revolution.
