Description

Watertown, in New York’s North Country, boasts a strong military presence because of nearby Fort Drum. There is an air of American pride in the town from the large number of veterans and families connected to the military living here. To catch the spirit of patriotism, visit Sackets Harbor Battlefield to tour the Commandant’s House and Navy Yard and see reenactments of the War of 1812.

There is something for everyone in Watertown from adventures to education. Learn about New York State's history visiting the library, museums and historic homes. Be sure to visit the 10th Division and Fort Drum Museum to learn about the history of Fort Drum as a military installation, the history of the 10th Mountain Division, and local military history. Additionally tour the Jefferson County Historical Society Museum and the New York State Living Museum at Thompson.

Visitors can choose from a variety of water sports on Lake Ontario or whitewater rafting on the Black River. The area offers diving, boating, fishing, hunting, golfing and snowmobiling seasonally.
