Potsdam, NY

PotsdamJust past the border of the Adirondacks in the St. Lawrence Valley lies Potsdam. More populous than many other towns in the area, Potsdam still has plenty of old-time charm and culture.

With the Raquette River flowing through town, and not too far from the St. Lawrence River, fishing and kayaking are favorites for locals and guests alike. Many of the farms in the area offer tours to educate visitors on the rich agricultural history of the region. A tip to those venturing to Potsdam – don’t leave without trying the maple syrup. This local product is freshest in spring, but is delicious year-round.

To make the most of a trip to Potsdam, and to take in as much of the region as possible, plan on visiting during its annual Summer Festival. This tradition brings together food, culture, arts, and more from around the area.
