Situated just outside of the Adirondack State Park on Lake Champlain lies Peru. Although a famous battle of the Revolutionary War took place here, today there are nothing but peaceful, relaxing activities to be had.

When you make it to Peru, plan on taking in the great outdoors during the day and night. Peru is known for campgrounds, both those that house tents and those that allow RVs, so booking a hotel isn’t always necessary (although there are very nice B&B’s if camping isn’t what you are looking for). During the day you can take a drive around town and see the gorgeous apple orchards and dairy farms.

Take in a round of golf at the local course or stop by the antique shops in town that offer a nice taste of the Adirondacks and the local culture.

History buffs, and even those that aren’t into history too much, may recall the Battle of Valcour during the Revolutionary War. This was an important battle for Benedict Arnold against the British, and took place within Peru’s borders on October 11, 1776.
