Plattsburgh is one of New York’s North Country cornerstones, a small town in Clinton County that sits along the coast of the historic Lake Champlain. Plattsburgh is home to world-class bass fishing, several gorgeous natural attractions, its own sea creature legend, a marina, beach and picnic areas, recreation trails, boat launches, and the most quaint restaurants and shops in the downtown area! This city claims many diverse outdoor seaside activities, and draws in many visitors during the calm, beautiful summers, as well as the exciting and unpredictable winters. Downtown Plattsburgh is surrounded by mountain peaks reaching heights of 5,000 feet aside Lake Champlain, making it a truly picturesque location!
While exploring downtown your group will have the chance to visit many of the fun shops, including A New Leaf, Champlain Centre North, Plattsburgh Consumer Square, and Maui North Ski Shop. After you’ve shopped till you drop head over to the many fine and casual dining options from Blue Collar Bistro and the exotic Himalaya Restaurant to Latitude 44 Grill and Quiche et Crepa.
