Boldt Castle

Boldt Castle was designed as their summer dream home for hotel magnate George C. Boldt as a tribute to his beloved wife Louise.

Coordinates are for the castle itself, but it is on an island so you’ll need to grab a boat ride from one of the local tour operators (click the external site link).

Corning Museum of Glass

Glass artworks and artifacts, as well as historical information about glass-making. Demonstrations and participatory events scheduled regularly.

Fort Ticonderoga

Historic fort and living museum. On May 10, 1775, Ethan Allen, Benedict Arnold, and the Green Mountain Boys crossed Lake Champlain from Vermont and at dawn surprised and captured the sleeping garrison. This was the first American victory of the Revolutionary War.

Star Trek Original Series Set Tour

Stony Point Battlefield

One of the last major Revolutionary War battles in the northeastern colonies occurred on this dramatic peninsula, which rises high over the Hudson River. There is about a quarter mile hike up a steep but paved driveway from the parking lot to the museum, then a nice foot path with interpretive signage and great views of the river.

The Stony Point Lighthouse, built in 1826, is the oldest lighthouse on the Hudson River.

Storm King Art Center
