The Beekmantown School District is bordered on the east by Lake Champlain and to the south by the Adirondack Mountains. Forty miles to the southwest is Lake Placid, home of the 1980 Winter Olympics. Sixty miles to the north is the city of Montréal, one of the world's great cosmopolitan centers which offers cultural attractions, professional sports, educational opportunities, shopping areas, and historical attractions unique in this hemisphere.
To the south of Beekmantown is the lush Champlain Valley with its orchards and dairy farms. The Adirondack Northway (I-87) extending through the Valley displays some of the most scenic areas in the Northeast and offers easy access to the Albany area.
