In today’s busy, fast-paced, multi-tasking world, taking the time to care for ourselves can be overlooked. Even on vacation, most of us don’t unplug and fully recharge. Self care, or the act of tending to our mental, emotional, or physical needs, can often feel more like a treat than a necessity for our personal well being.  

For visitors to the Ticonderoga area, there is a vast array of self-care options to meet all of your needs.

Visitors at the Best Western Plus Ticonderoga Inn and Suites have access to the hotel's fitness center, indoor pool and indoor jacuzzi.

The Garrison Gym is a full service facility with multiple membership options for visitors both long and short term, from a one day $10 pass, to a monthly $35 membership, and up to one year for $400. Whether you are on vacation or in town for business, this gym has plenty of options for getting in some healthy exercise.

The Northern Lake George Platform Tennis facility has two courts for platform tennis and pickleball with a warming hut and viewing deck.

The Ticonderoga Golf Course and Five Nations Golf are great, seasonal locations for activities that calm the mind and activate the body.

Backcountry Chiropractic offers chiropractic care to visitors of all ages to build healthy habits at any point in life’s journey.

For yoga enthusiasts, there are a number of options of practices and classes to suit all abilities and needs. Mont Calm Apothecary and Mariposa Yoga offer options for everyone!

Nothing resets the soul like a massage. Creekside Therapeutic Massage, Mont Calm Apothecary and Hamsa Healing Touch all offer a variety of massage styles. Some examples are hot stone, Swedish, deep tissue, shiatsu, CBD, Thai, and pre-natal massages.

Time in the woods or on the trails can do wonders for your mindset. The LaChute River Walk, Champlain Area Trails and Lake George Land Conservancy provide many trails for everyone from hiking novices to trail masters.

Sometimes all you need to care for yourself is a little quiet and a good book. A visit to the Black Watch Memorial Library can give you both!

Self care is not a luxury, but rather a required discipline for us all. It is a form of self-respect and should no longer be viewed as an indulgence. It is not an expense, it is an investment in your well-being. If you are ready to treat yourself better, then you are ready for a visit to the Ticonderoga Area. Let the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce help you make the most of your visit and fulfill all of your self-care needs! Call us today at 518-585-6619.
