Things to See & Do
Families, couples, and solo travelers alike love VT for its endless list of attractions. One of the most popular is Lake Champlain, a shimmering oasis for fishing, sailing, and watersports. Mount Mansfield is another must-see. It’s the highest peak in Vermont and offers top-notch skiing and hiking. For those interested in the state’s rich history, the Shelburne Museum, Hildene, and Billings Farm are excellent choices for a day trip.
If you’re looking to get away with your special someone, you’re in luck; there are plenty of romantic things to do in Vermont. Take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through Woodstock or Chester for an unforgettable evening under the stars. Or, attend a Vermont Symphony Orchestra concert. You can enjoy a picnic of local cheese, wine, and hors d'oeuvres as strains of Mozart and Beethoven fill the air.
Where to Eat & Drink
Vermont’s cuisine is quite different from the rest of New England. Diners can indulge in sweet maple syrup from freshly-tapped trees, cheese and ice cream from dairy farms, and local produce from nearby fields and woods. Vermont is also known for its creative craft beer scene, with breweries like The Alchemist in Stowe and Zero Gravity in Burlington attracting beer enthusiasts from all over the world. Order a pint, hop up on a bar stool, and taste something new during your stay.
Best Time to Visit
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, Vermont is a wonderful place to explore throughout the year. In fact, the ever-shifting seasons are precisely what make northern New England so distinctive. Summertime means hiking, golf, swimming, and stargazing. Spring is great for wildlife viewing and admiring spectacular flora and fauna. In the fall, the Green Mountain State comes ablaze with brilliant reds and stunning oranges. Grab your camera and hit the road for a scenic leaf-peeping adventure.
Of course, skiers will want to visit Vermont in the winter. Resorts like Killington, Stowe, Stratton, and Jay offer some of the best skiing in the United States. Other wintertime activities include snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice skating on frozen lakes.
