The Champlain Valley stretches along the length of Lake Champlain – a huge freshwater natural lake 125 mi (201 km) long and 14 mi (23 km) across at its widest point. The region includes the eastern portions of Clinton and Essex Counties and features unbeatable sunrises over Vermont’s Green Mountains.
The enactments at Historic Fort of Crown Point will tell the stories of the ferocious battles fought over the pristine waters of Lake Champlain in the turbulent times of Revolutionary War and War of 1812. Don’t miss the beautiful and unconventional Champlain Memorial Lighthouse just around the corner.
Both kids and parents will be delighted by Ausable Chasm – sometimes referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the East”, with its 2 miles of towering walls and breathtaking rock formations. How you want to explore those – is just your choice, with array of rafting, tubing or walking tours readily available.
Oh yes, and watch out for Champ, a mysterious creature, haunting many minds since the times of “Cap” Samuel Champlain. Who knows, maybe you will be the lucky one to capture old fella, at least on film.
