With stunning views from land and water, you will definitely need your camera when you visit Whitehall. Just outside the Adirondacks on the New York / Vermont border, this the little town’s location allowed it to become the ‘birthplace of the US Navy.’
Formerly known as Skenesborough, Whitehall takes advantage of its location by giving visitors a tremendous visual experience. If you are in the mood for a boat cruise, jump aboard one of the ships that launch from Whitehall and offers tours around Lake Champlain. You’ll enjoy the soft breeze off the lake and the majestic views the landscape has to offer, while learning a little bit about the region.
Looking for a more active experience? Take a trip up to The Skene Manor, affectionately known as ‘Whitehall’s Castle on the Mountain.’ This symbol of turn-of-the-century wealth overlooks the harbor and offers additional views of the region that can be missed at lower elevations.
