Plattsburgh is located just over an hour from Montreal Canada, and a one hour commute from Burlington, Vermont. One of the cornerstones of Upstate New York, Plattsburgh offers great vacation opportunities for visitors during its calm, beautiful summers and unpredictably exciting winters. For the warm weather tourist, the highlight is typically taking a walk or ride to Plattsburgh's east end and glancing out onto and over Lake Champlain, one of the most beautiful inland lakes you will ever lay your eyes on. Surrounded by mountains rising to heights over 5,000 feet, it's as dynamic a view as there is in the region. If looking at the lake isn't enough, there are plenty of on-water activities available on Lake Champlain, including boating, wind surfing, and fishing. When it's time to leave the shore, Plattsburgh offers two different walking trails that showcase its rich history and beautiful scenery.  Many of the excursions primarily considered summer activities are also popular in the winter months, but Plattsburgh captures the hearts of cold weather travelers with its own brand of outdoor action.
