Sculpted through scenic mountainside terrain, Green Mountain National Golf Course spans 6,589 yards of arching fairways and multi-tiered greens. Engulfed by dense tree lines and rising mountain faces, the course's narrow fairways call for a cautious approach, and those boldly teeing off with a driver or 17th-century musket may end up hacking their second shot out of the woodsy rough. As golfers traverse the course, elevated tees, greens, and cresting fairways give way to panoramic views, letting golfers glimpse the contoured terrain and drink in ancient rock formations shaped by glaciers and the species of colossal paleontologists that ruled the continent prior to their extinction. A full-length driving range, short game practice area, and putting green fine tune players' club-wielding prowess, and a fully stocked pro shop offers up equipment and gear to help guests loop the links in style. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,589 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 138 from the farthest tees * Five tee options

Fort Ticonderoga and its surrounding grounds are like one big history book. Following its construction by the French in 1755, the strategic military outpost was conquered first by the British and then by American forces?marking one of their earliest victories during the Revolutionary War. After independence was secured, Fort Ticonderoga became one of the country's earliest tourist destinations, and one that continues to draw visitors today.

  • Size: 2,000 acres surrounded by mountains and the waters of Lake Champlain and Lake George
  • Eye Catcher: the staff, who dons the garb of Revolutionary soldiers from the Fourth Pennsylvania Battalion
  • Permanent Mainstays: 18th-century weapons including America's largest 18th-century cannon collection, everyday objects from soldiers, large collection of 18th and 19th century art.
  • Crown Jewel: the King's Garden, where flowers surround brick walls and walkways, off of which shaded tables let patrons enjoy a quiet picnic
  • The Building: the main exhibitions occupy 10,000 sq. ft. of a restored 1756 soldiers' barrack
  • Outdoor Activities: walk a trail up Mount Defiance for a birds-eye view of the fort or rent a canoe to view it from the water
  • Special Events: regular drum corps performances and nighttime firings of 18th-century artillery

No matter what direction their houses might actually be facing, most of the roofs in the United States point toward Slate Valley, a 24-mile-long stretch between New York and Vermont. That region not only produces most of the nation's roofing slate, but also has an intricate history that reaches all the way back to the 1800s.

  • The Building: Slate Valley Museum fills a New World Dutch Barn, which was built around 1840
  • Eye Catcher: a worn-down and beat-up 1951 LJT Mack Truck, which once hauled finished slate?and then blocks and rubbish?for the Tatko Bros. Slate Company

  • Don't Miss: Neil Rappaport's black-and-white photographs of Slate Valley's quarries, workers, and earliest bunny ears
  • Permanent Mainstay: The Dream and the Reality, which explores how various immigrant groups came to work in the slate quarries
  • Visiting Exhibit: Slate as Muse?a collection of sculptures, photographs, and watercolor paintings by 19 artists who used slate as medium and subject
  • While You're in the Neighborhood: take a self-guided driving tour through local quarries and other slate-industry sites

Most sports require specialized gear, and rock climbing is no exception. In addition to climbing shoes, rock climbers wear a harness attached to a rope. At Green Mountain Rock Climbing Center, belay classes show first-timers that this rope is a safety feature and not meant for playing double dutch with a giant. Once climbers have these skills under their belts, they may challenge themselves by ascending walls up to 40 feet tall or venturing inside a bouldering cave, though not before making sure it's free of hermit trolls.

The One Drum Festival delights listeners with percussion circles and performances capturing the rhythms of the Middle East, West Africa, Brazil, and Japan. This one-day, family-friendly event bottles a swirling storm of meter and movement including interactive workshops where drummers, singers, and dancers of all skills levels can share their creative influences. Todd Roach will lead budding bangers in Middle Eastern hand-drum techniques from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. before Stuart Paton demonstrates the taiko drum, a Japanese instrument played with two wooden sticks or two sausage links carved into wooden sticks. Other events on the schedule hypnotize crowds throughout the day, including a concert at 6 p.m. featuring workshop instructors and special guests and community drum circles. Visitors can bring their own drum or borrow one of the many instruments on hand to tap Jimmy Carter's memoirs in Morse code.
