About the Area

The Champlain Valley is characterized by its working landscapes; undulating hills, meadows and pastures rolling down to the waters of giant Lake Champlain, the largest lake in the U.S. behind the Great Lakes. Plattsburgh, a picturesque community of 38,000, offers a cost of living just below the national average. The perfect place to raise a family, the area features excellent schools both public and private. The State University of New York also has a branch here with 6,200 students boasting a large international population and solid nursing program. Site Selection Magazine has chosen Plattsburgh as a top city in the nation for business development for the past eight years.

In addition, Policom Corp has ranked Plattsburgh as the top micropolitan in New York and the 27th in the nation. As far as recreational opportunities, Plattsburgh and the Champlain Valley offer incredible year-round activities. From boating, biking, and fishing in the summer, to skiing and ice skating in the winter months. Nearby Lake Placid, host of the 1980 Winter Olympics and 2023 FISU World University Games, is a hub for recreation. The historic Strand Theater serves as the anchor of downtown Plattsburgh, and dozens of museums and historic attractions share the region’s rich history.
