Plattsburgh, New York is always beautiful any time of the year, but fall is particularly special around here. The leaves are changing colors, the sky is blue, the air is perfectly crisp, and the sunsets are somehow extra spectacular. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to bask in the warmth of the community—even though COVID may keep us 6-feet apart from one another. Here are a few ways to enjoy this season in the city.
WARM UP AT A LOCAL CAFE
One of the best cafes in Plattsburgh? It’s gotta be Koffee Kat. A favorite for both locals and visitors alike, the downtown spot has become a neighborhood staple for its delicious drinks and friendly service. Grab a latte from the espresso bar, cozy up at an outdoor table, and watch the world go by. The cafe often has live music performances, too, which promises to make your moment that much sweeter.
GO APPLE PICKING
Known as the “Largest McIntosh Apple Orchard in the World,” Chazy Orchards is also one of the most historic orchards in the Adirondacks. Originally planted in the 1920s, the orchard produces almost 300,000 bushels of apples a year! Pay them a visit to pick your own, to check out the weekly Farm Market, or to buy a freshly baked pie from their bakery.
VISIT A PUMPKIN PATCH
Is fall complete without a visit to a pumpkin patch? Stop in at Country Dreams Farm to find the perfect pumpkin, get lost in the corn maze, take a wagon ride, and visit the animals on the farm. It’s really fun for the whole family.
With clean, comfortable, and spacious guest rooms and suites, plus a fantastic location on the western shore of Lake Champlain, Best Western Plattsburgh is perfect for a fall staycation in New York. Get in touch and make your reservations today!
