    Enjoy majestic views of Lake Champlain and surrounding mountains from your beach chair! Just minutes away from downtown Plattsburgh, on the west shore of Lake Champlain, rests a long sandy beach that is over a mile long. The beach is split between two amenities; the City of Plattsburgh and Cumberland Bay State Park. The City of Plattsburgh is free for all city residences or $5 per vehicle.

    The park features a designated swim area, picnic tables, outdoor grills, concession stand, rest rooms, showers and nature trails. Cumberland Bay State Park is a popular destination for travelers. With many lake front camp sites this campground fills up fast. The State Park is also open for day-use visitors and offers beach access, swimming area, playground, playing field and picnic area. This is Paradise in Plattsburgh!

    You don't want to miss this July celebration that includes a fantastic race of sailboats on Lake Champlain called the Mayor’s Cup Regatta where sail boats come in from all over the Northeast, including Canada to participate in this sometimes adventurous event.

    There is something for everyone at this event from a competition boat parade of fantastic lights, farmers markets, live music, arts and crafts, a lighthouse tour and more. Don't forget to sign up for the Fun Run 5K as well. The event ends each year with a wonderful display of fireworks to delight everyone.

    Lots of fun, food and great entertainment. I just love living in the North Country!

    Did you know that you can go from New York to Vermont in only 12 minutes on the Lake Champlain Ferries? The ferries have linked the two communities since 1826. The latest in their fleet is the Raymond C. Pecor Jr., which was built in 2010 and it can carry up to 50 automobiles.

    The Lake Champlain Ferries runs 365 days a year even on the toughest winter days from Plattsburgh, NY to Grand Isle, VT. If Lake Champlain freezes and the ferry cannot cut through the ice, it stops running for a short time, but this is a very rare occurrence. It is equipped to cut through even the toughest ice.

    Some fun trivia that you may not know…a baby boy was born right in the middle of Lake Champlain on the ferry in July 2003 and the Phish concert brought in a record number of ferry travelers in 1996.

    So go explore and check out this beautiful ride.

    Lake Champlain was discovered in 1609 by Samuel de Champlain. It is a 125 mile body of water that stretches from New York, Vermont and Quebec with many stories to tell. It is the home of many shipwrecks throughout the years, some fully intact.

    Lake Champlain Maritime Museum offers “Shipwreck Tours”, where you can explore the remains of some shipwrecks. It is said that there are almost 300 historic shipwrecks in the bottom of this beautiful lake. Most are well preserved with the conditions the lake has to offer.

    Go out and discover, you won't be sorry!
