U.S. News Travel recently named Fort Ticonderoga no. 2 in “Best Things to do in the Adirondacks.”
Cited for its historical significance as the “key to the continent” and its interpretive authenticity, the report states, “If you ask, the period-costumed staff will help you with all your questions or pose with you for a photograph. They help make this splendid fort authentic.”
Fort Ticonderoga is listed just under the Saranac Lake Area on the top five “Best Things to do in the Adirondacks” list and was the only destination in the top five. The others “Best Things to Do” include Tupper Lake, Mount Pisgah and St. Regis Canoe Areas.
The U.S. News Travel report highlights the Adirondacks as mainly for outdoor vacationers, including opportunities for skiing and snowboarding in winter and hiking and boating in the warmer months. But the report also highlights that the region holds a range of attractions for other niche travelers including “history buffs.”
Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga executive director, said, “I am thrilled that Fort Ticonderoga has been recognized as a leading destination in the Adirondack region. Fort Ticonderoga offers visitors an experience steeped in rich history, authentic interpretation, and exquisite natural beauty making Fort Ticonderoga a must-visit destination.”
