Gateway to the Adirondacks
The Plattsburgh area is literally the GATEWAY TO THE ADIRONDACKS - one of the most beautiful regions of North America.
The 6 million acre Adirondack Park is within view, and is the largest park in the lower 48 states. In addition to millions of acres of incredible wilderness - dotted with high peaks, pristine lakes, and old growth forests - the park includes a number of world-class resorts and recreational venues, such as Lake Placid, the Winter Sports Capitol of the World!
As a resident of the Plattsburgh-Lake Champlain area, you will find yourself drawn to the Adirondacks on a regular basis. Skiing where the world skis. Camping on the weekends. Taking a break in a top resort. Hiking and biking. Leaf peeping in the fall. Or just taking a drive along the mountain byways.
