Sackets Harbor: Extraordinary Places of Central New York

SACKETS HARBOR, JEFFERSON COUNTY - With graduations behind us, it's time to get in the car and discover places that make this part of New York State extraordinary. 

Every week throughout the summer, NewsChannel 9’s Carrie Lazarus will take us to one of those places.

Sackets Harbor, about an hour north of Syracuse, has played a part in American history— two battles from the War of 1812 were fought there.

The village that was once a strategic location in war 200 years ago is now a peaceful picture-perfect place with shops, restaurants and lots of tourists.

Re-enactors from around the country come to Sackets Harbor to celebrate its rich history.

Visitors come for the water, the quaint village and Tin Pan Gallery— a one of a kind restaurant with music six nights a week. 

There’s lots to do in Sacketts Harbor that's free, including waterfront concerts every Sunday afternoon, war re-enactments and fireworks on the Fourth of July.
