Spring Awake — Experience the Ticonderoga Area

Blog by Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce

While the temperatures are still cold in the Adirondacks, the smell of spring's arrival is in the air and plans for the year ahead are being finalized. With so much happening throughout the Ticonderoga area we encourage you to make your overnight reservations (rooms are filling fast) as soon as possible and experience all the area has to offer. As spring approaches, many of our attractions, museums, and seasonal eateries will open bringing a renewed sense of energy to the region. This is a sure sign of spring and the warmer weather ahead. 

Whatever the season, the Ticonderoga area offers a wide variety of unsurpassed scenic beauty, rich history, arts and cultural opportunities, and recreational activities. Did you know that in one day you can experience our rich history by visiting our historic sites and museums, as well as the future at Star Trek Original Series Set Tour? You can also experience Lake Champlain (Ticonderoga Ferry Landing & Boat Launch) and Lake George (Ticonderoga Black Point Beach, Mossey Point Boat Launch, Snug Harbor Marina) all without leaving Ticonderoga.

Some other suggestions you may want to add to your travel itinerary 

  • Hiking can be a great way to experience the area. While spring does bring some mud it also brings fresh grass, flowers, and the sounds, sights, and smells of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Champlain Area Trails (CATS) as well as Lake George Land Conservancy maintain trails throughout the region in addition to the NYS trails that can be accessed. CATS will also be hosting a number of guided hikes.
  • Experience some of the local food! The area offers an array of fantastic dining options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Do not forget about Michigans (ask us if you do not know what one is — you will want to try this during your visit), Soft serve ice cream, and many other local favorites you can get from some of the seasonal and year round eateries. 
  • You will also want to plan to do a little spring shopping during your stay. Be sure to visit the The Candy Corner, The Country Florist & Gifts, Sugar & Spice Country Shoppe, Ticonderoga Paint & Decorating, Tromblees Greenhouse & Gifts, Gunnisons Orchard, Bakery, & Gifts, Ticonderoga Hidden Treasures, Lonergans Antiques, and Brookwood Country Store. The area also has an array of crafters, artisians, and small businesses who offer unqiue and personal gifts.
