“Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site is a historically important location in Jefferson County, New York, United States. The historic site is south of the Village of Sackets Harbor, bordering Lake Ontario in the Town of Hounsfield. Two battles were fought near this location during the War of 1812”

“Because of $2 Wine Night Wednesdays. But seriously, Goodfellows has been doing brick oven pizza for decades and their extensive selection of thin crust individual pizzas, plus well chosen pastas and mains, not to mention their amazing antipasto for a crowd, make this a no-brainer recommendation. Be sure to check the specials before you order, they are always inspired and amazing.”

“Calla Lillies is owned by a good neighbor and and great couple. Cheryl is the owner and operator and her husband Don helps out when not working on the 9020 Emergency Management Initiative. Many of my candles and decorations that feature Sackets Harbor or nautical-themes come from Calla Lillies. They're a great gift store. Occasionally there are foods in my AirBnB that are also found at Calla Lillies, from coffee and jams to chocolate truffles or other deserts. If you want a memorabilia and keepsake of your time in the area or want to sample some of the locally-produced food from artisan vendors, stop in at Calla Lillies just past Tin Pan Galley!”

“The marina contains a majority of the boats in Sackets Harbor. It's a great view and really calls you to the water. Take a look at the boats during the Summer and the open water -- great pictures at Sunrise and Sunset all the way through September.”

“There's an IGA Grocery Store here and just past it down Barracks Drive is the public Laundromat ($3 per load for washing and drying together). The machines are small, but they work! On the far side of the IGA going away from Sackets Harbor is the Sackets Harbor Wine and Liqour store. They have a great selection. Also, buy your wines or liqours individually one at a time. There's no bulk discount, but there is a cumulative card you can have punched every time you come in and buy a bottle. Eventually you'll score a free bottle!”
