Fort Ticonderoga recently unveiled a new responsive and multi-lingual website, featuring visuals that capture Fort Ticonderoga’s scenic beauty and many programs extending across the historic site’s 2,000-acre landscape and onto the waters of Lake Champlain.
The website project was supported, in part, by a grant from New York State’s Division of Tourism/I LOVE NY through the Market New York program as part of the Regional Economic Development Council awards.
The new website offers translations in more than 20 languages including French, German, Chinese, and Spanish and provides ease of ticket purchasing for daily tickets, premium tours, seminars and special events.
Visitors can discover information about scenic boat tours, historic trades, special events, gardens and much more including information about visiting the Adirondack-Lake George Region. A robust on-line store offers shoppers the opportunity to purchase unique Fort Ticonderoga merchandise including museum publications, apparel, and other museum quality retail products.
According to an announcement sent to the press, Fort Ticonderoga saw a 41% increase in web traffic in June, the first month the new website launched. Increased on-line ticket sales in 2019 is up due, in part, to the new site by 249%. In 2018, the Fort Ticonderoga website had nearly 300,000 visitors with significantly more expected in 2019 due to the new website and its features.
More information is available on Fort Ticonderoga’s website.
