Where in the World is Gary? #407

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game. I will reveal the correct location on the following day.

Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#406) is Mount Vernon, Virginia, USA

Nearby Fort Ticonderoga was a pivotal, strategic location during several American wars. A boat ride is a must here.
