Area Information

When flying into Plattsburgh visitors find themselves on the Adirondack Coast. The Adirondack Coast stretches across the western shores of Lake Champlain shouldered by New York’s Adirondack Mountains and the Green Mountains of Vermont. Fabled rivers crisscross the landscape feeding pristine mountain lakes and offering world-class fishing and paddling. Cyclists are welcomed by quiet roads winding through picturesque farmland connecting family-owned vineyards and orchards. 

Changing seasons bring incredible fall foliage and festivals while skiers and snowshoers enjoy mountains dressed in winter white. In the spring, the air is filled with the fragrance of apple blossoms and the long tradition of maple sugaring. 
This spectacular setting served as the backdrop for historic battles that helped shape a young American nation. Today, lakeside villages, charming hamlets and the historic city of Plattsburgh offer a generous helping of our famous Adirondack hospitality and a chance to escape the everyday.
