Discover the hometown charm of Watertown, a city named for the Black River that runs through it. Residents of this close-knit community of 26,000 enjoy fun local events and multiple outdoor recreation opportunities, all within proximity to Lake Ontario, the Canadian border and a variety of Watertown apartments to choose from.
The heart of Watertown lies in its Black River, a choice destination for kayakers and rafters. The less adventurous Watertown residents can watch the white-water action as they stroll along the river at the Veteran's Memorial Riverwalk. If you enjoy fishing or walking near the river, look for apartments near Waterworks and Marble Street Park in Watertown. About a mile south of the river in southwest Watertown is the historic Thompson Park, which has a children's playground, a New York State zoo, pool, golf and picnic areas, and it is the location for the Syracuse Symphony Concert in the Park on or around July 4 of each year.
Just a short drive from Watertown apartments are countless places to visit, such as The Thousand Islands, Bolt Castle, Sackets Harbor, Lake Ontario, the Canadian border towns and Adirondack Park Preserve. Also, a world of food is close to Watertown if you don't want to cook in your apartment kitchen; you won't have to drive far for winery tours, chocolate or the cheeses and maple syrup of Vermont. On Wednesdays, stop by Washington Street by City Hall for the farmer's market, which offers the freshest produce, homemade baked goods and arts and crafts for sale.
