The best way to get into Plattsburgh is by car. Though there are other methods, this is the most popular and easiest way.
If you are flying to the New York area, rent a car and drive to Plattsburgh. There is only a small airport in Plattsburgh, so most people heading for this area fly into the Burlington, Vermont airport which is about an hour’s drive from Plattsburgh. You can also fly into the Montreal airport (Trudeau International), which is about a 1 ½ to 2 -hour drive from Plattsburgh, or Boston’s Logan International airport, which is about a 5-hour drive from Plattsburgh. Up date 4/26/08. Plattsburgh International Airport is now operateing with flights to and from Boston (Cape Air). Flights are also available to and from points in Florida.
Once you have a rental car picked up at one of these airports, Plattsburgh is an easy drive straight down the freeway.
If you prefer public transportation into town, Amtrak treks here, as does Greyhound. The bus ride from New York City is about 7 hours, or about 7 ½ hours from Boston (this includes a transfer).
