The refreshing thing about Lake Champlain – well, apart from the gorgeous, Adirondack-flanked lake itself – is its lack of bustle and over-development. There’s lots to do, like hike, golf, camp and take boat cruises, but the beauty is, how easy it...more

I visited Lake Champlain years ago with friends and being from the south I had never seen anything quite so beautiful. I am looking forward to going back again and experiencing the full fall foliage in early october 2019.

We took the ferry from Burlington to NY just for the ride. Scenery was gorgeous with islands and sailboats doting the view. Perfect day with warm sun and high 70’s. If the weather is right you will enjoy the ride!

Driving around Lake Champlain is comparable to driving around the Grand Canyon. It's big and it seems to get bigger. Located mainly within the borders of the United States in the states of New York and Vermont but partially situated across the U.S./Canada border in...More
