It’s no wonder it’s called the Green Mountain State. Vermont is as verdant and lovely as you could wish for. The Green Mountains are a year-round destination, and a hiker or skier's delight. Situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain, Burlington is Vermont’s largest city. It has a bit of an edgy feel while retaining the classic New England small city vibe. Visitors can explore on foot or on a Segway tour or head to the lake for a cruise.
Vermont boasts some of New England’s best food and drink, and produces the majority of the country’s maple syrup. Be sure to stop by one of the state’s 1,500 sugar houses to pick up some of this delicious treat, or enjoy a maple creamee (it’s not soft serve here!). The Ben & Jerry’s factory is in Waterbury and offers tours every day. And, if you love beer, you’re in the right place, follow one of the state's beer trails for samples of local craft brews.
Bring your camera. Every road is a scenic drive in Vermont. Roadside attractions include the Cornish-Windsor Bridge, America's second-longest wooden covered bridge. It spans the Connecticut River and links Vermont to its neighbor, New Hampshire.
