Outdoor Adventures

From mountain tops to river valleys, our corner of Vermont offers year-long recreational activities for every skill level. Nature enthusiasts love to explore Equinox Preserve. Gardeners adore historic Hildene for its unmatched blossoms and blooms. Anglers can tackle the Battenkill, one of the region’s most historic trout streams. And when temperatures drop, ski and ride Bromley, Magic, Okemo, and Stratton Mountain -- all within an easy drive.

Local Flavor

Whether you’re after the perfect maple creemee (that’s soft serve in VT speak) or a perfect margarita, we’ve got you covered. Book a table for farm to table fine dining or grab an fabulous pizza to go. Road trip for burgers & fries at Honey Pie. Stop by the counter at Mrs. Murphy's for Vermont's best glazed doughnut. And make sure to hit Mother Myrick’s for their award-winning buttercrunch. You know what they say, eat dessert first!

Not to Miss

Throughout the year, there are a few events you simply shouldn’t miss. Maple Open House Weekend celebrates our Maple Syrup Makers. Visit their sugar shacks, experience the process first hand, and sample the sweet results. Summer is for touring our covered bridges and breweries. Fall is truly…everything! Glorious, golden landscapes and stunning vistas everywhere you look. Plus, all the pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and cider donuts you could ask for. Then, before the year is up, come the holidays. Storefronts bedecked, Christmas Tree Farms at the ready, and caroling on the green. Welcome home to Vermont…
