Ticonderoga, NY in fall?

Recommended Posts

Is this a nice place to visit in the fall?  Is it a nice town?  The fort looks good.  What else would you recommend doing?  Is there anything to do if it rains?

Um, there is nothing else nearby. At all. Except the Adirondack Mountains. Ticonderoga is not really much of a town- it’s a very rural area and then there’s a Walmart plaza.

check when the fort closes for the year to be sure they’re still open.

Plattsburgh is an hour North with a SUNY school, a mall,  but not much else. An hour south is the Lake George area- touristy. There’s a 6 Flags there open on weekends only in the fall. And one of those indoor water park places.

(I live nearby)

and nope- not where pencils are made. But there’s a paper mill.

Back in the day when my boys were younger, they loved Fort Ticonderoga - but they were Revolutionary War nuts.  We then took the ferry over to Middlebury for lunch then called it a day.

Burlington, VT is 1.5-2 hours away, depending on whether you take the ferry.  There is a fair amount to do on our side of the lake.

The fort itself is awesome.

there are small historical re enactments in the area in Sept- Fort William Henry in Lake George & one at Fort Edward (no actual fort- just a field)

Yeah, Burlington is way better 🙂
