You won’t find scores of travel books giving you advice on where to stay and what to do in Plattsburgh, so you have to work a little bit harder to get the basic information you need to help you plan your visit here.

Luckily, there’s a useful tourism site that can help you a little with your planning. Offering a good view at the myriad of activities here, both seasonal and year-round, and with an emphasis on the elements of Plattsburgh that might not be immediately obvious to the first-time visitor, such as water sports and downhill skiing, this site offers a fulsome look at Plattsburgh and all it can offer to the visitor.

For example, click on “events” and you’ll get a lengthy listing of events every month of the year. Granted, most are local events that might interest the casual traveler, but there are many festivals, concerts and the like to interest the traveler here too.

Through this site you can request a wide variety of informational brochures, or call the Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce at (518) 563-1000.
