Now you can see Fort Ticonderoga the way two generations of soldiers saw the great lakeside citadel in the 18th century during Fort Ticonderoga’s new sunset tour, The Place Between Great Waters. The ninety minute tour takes place on scenic Lake Champlain located just below the Fort’s imposing walls. Costumed historic interpreters will lead the tour in an 18th-century battoe while guests paddle along side in their canoes and kayaks (Fort Ticonderoga canoes will be available for rent the evening of the program).
“Our story is in our landscape,” says Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga’s President and CEO. “The unique combination of lakes, hills, mountains, and streams that surround Fort Ticonderoga made it a strategic location in the 18th century and make it one of North America’s most beautiful destinations today. Its history cannot be appreciated without an understanding of its landscape.”
Tours will be offered on the following Tuesdays: July 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30; August 6, 13, 20 and 27. Tickets are $35 per person. All sales are final, no exchanges or refunds. This is a rain or shine event.
The Place Between the Great Waters tour will be offered in July and August on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm. Limited space is available and advanced reservations are required. To learn more details about this program visit http://www.fortticonderoga.
