You can see both the remains of the French and British Forts that defended Lake Champlain from various forces over the years. Right at the foot of the Lake Champlain Bridge presents an interesting comparison of old and new.

If you are into history be sure to stop here after seeing the Lake Champlain Lighthouse just across the street. We hiked and climbed all around the battlements, which are rather extensive. Just a little piece of history of the area well-preserved.

We drove up from Ticonderoga after visiting Fort Ticonderoga; unfortunately the day we were here, the museum was closed so we just walk around a little to see the grounds - we had to be careful since restoration work was ongoing and we didn't want...More
