Summer is legendary in the Lake Champlain Region

In summer, the Lake Champlain Region dons its familiar golden glow, backdropping its miles and miles of rolling hills, adventurous trails, and historic landmarks. As we settle into that cozy blanket of warm summer air, the region’s local farms spring back to life! Crops are raring to go, filling our farmer's markets with plenty of harvest for every hungry traveler. Up in the mountains, you’ll find incredible CATS trails that pack a punch, offering unique challenges as you work your way to the top. Witness stellar views of New York and Vermont, and the glorious Lake Champlain that cuts between the states. While you’re looking at the lake, you may even catch a glimpse of Champ!

Adventure awaits

Dive deep into our nation’s history at Fort Ticonderoga, a Revolutionary War fort that secured a victory against the British, and to this day operates as it would have 300 years ago! When you’re not busy time traveling, experience an adventure like no other at Ausable Chasm, by way of hiking trails, rafting, climbing, and rappelling, along 175-foot Potsdam Sandstone walls. When it's time to slow down and unwind, you’ll find that our charming downtowns do just that, allowing you to indulge in farm-to-table dining, shopping, and oh-so-comfortable lodging (farmstay, anyone?) There’s no shortage of summer fun to get up to across the region, so come on over!
