6 Free Things to Do in Clinton

Jumpin’ Zach Flash, Oldiez 96.1

Let’s face it, it can be difficult to go on vacation. Everything is so expensive. So, I decided to help you take a vacation without actually leaving. Here are six things you can do in the Village of Clinton that don’t cost money.

6. Explore History

In Clinton, history is all around–just walk around the village. For example, visit the Old Burying Ground on Kirkland Ave where American Revolutionary War veterans are buried. Or, visit Hamilton College to see the building where Elihu Root was born and the grave of Oneida Chief Skenandoah (Skenando, Skenandoa and Shenendoah are other spellings).

5. Music on the Green (Tuesday Evenings in the Summer)

If you love nature and like to hike, this is the place to go. You’ll see beautiful scenery as you walk the trails. And the best part–it’s free! You can check out some of my photography from Root Glen, here. For more information about Root Glen, click here.
