Ferry Ride on Lake Champlain

A ferry ride across Lake Champlain during peak foliage season can be a great day trip (depending on your starting point) or weekend trip. Bring your car (or not) or bring your bikes and definitely bring your camera: The view is breathtaking. The combination of the water, boats, foliage and mountains observed from the ferry make for some of the best fall scenery upstate New York has to offer. Take the ferry from Plattsburgh to Grand Isle, VT or from Port Kent to Burlington, VT (check the seasonal schedules). Grab a lunch or pack a picnic and enjoy the fresh air.
