Emeralds II was our go-to restaurant during our visit to the Ticonderoga area. Their food is incredible!!!! A family owned business, the service was very friendly. We nice deck that offered ample covered outdoor dining.
We visited Ticonderoga during COVID. The hotel was clean and had implemented all of the safety precautions that made us feel comfortable travelling during a pandemic. We were not able to take advantage of the pool or restaurant due to the pandemic, but were happy with our experience.
We spent the day exploring the King's Garden and the fort, then drove over to Mount Defiance to see the view of the fort from above. Fun, family friendly trip that can easily fill 4 hours of your day.
This is a nice quick service (not fast food) restaurant with convenient outdoor dining. The facilities were clean and there were so many options other than what you would get at a fast food restaurant.
What a blast! Visited with my husband and daughter, neither of whom are Star Trek fans. And they still enjoyed the tour because it contained so much information about how the sets were created. It was really like having a behind the scenes tour of the show. Highly recommend to anyone who is in the area.
Nice little stop across the street from Fort Crown Point. Please be aware that you need to enter through the campground, however, there is no fee to enter if you are only visiting the memorial for 10 minutes or less.
Beautiful park that contains the ruins of two historic forts: Fort Saint-Frédéric and Fort Crown Point. The park is well maintained and contains picnic tables and restrooms. It's just a short walk to the shores of Lake Champlain. Very worth the stop.
Cool. We purchased tickets for the launch center tour (Delta 1) online so we didn't miss out. The tour was for 2:00 in the afternoon, so we went to the visitors center in the morning, then drove to the Delta 9 site to see the missile still in the silo (Delta 9 closes at 3:00), then on to Wall Drug for lunch. That was the perfect amount of time to make it back to D-1 for the tour.
Learned so much about the procedures that were in place during the Cold War to make sure we didn't have a nuclear accident.
To call this a concrete prairie dog is a disservice. This is actually the Bandlands Ranch Store, a little gift shop that also has a large prairie dog colony. This is different than all the other prairie dog colonies you will see in that you are actually encouraged to feed them. The store sells $1 bags of unsalted peanuts. Feeding the dogs kept us busy for about 1/2 hour. This is a nice stop from the Badlands toward I-90 in Philip (on the way to 1880 Town, the Minuteman Missile site, or Wall) and is just minutes up the road from the Prairie Homestead.
Really nice place to stop on the way from the Badlands to I-90 (Philip, Wall). We stopped as we were leaving our stay at the bandlands and heading to the Minuteman Missile National Park. Our visit at the Pairie Homestead lasted less than an hour, but it was the only authentic homesteader mud home we found in the area. Lots to learn. Worth the stop.
