Fort Ticonderoga

I just can't believe this place is so close to NYC, yet nobody I know has ever heard of it, much less gone there.  It's an amazingly well maintained fort (and garden), established by the French, on the border of NY and Vermont, overlooking Lake Champlain. We spent an hour there on our way from the Adirondacks to Woodstock (VT), and it's a place that I would recommend to any family that is anywhere in Vermont or Northern NY. The restaurant there uses food from their organic gardens, and the gift shop has lots of clever wooden toys (including rifles and shotguns, if you swing that way).
