Why Vacation In Vermont?

Whether you’re into hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, or nature spotting, want to shop until you drop, or are looking for a vacation packed with history and culture, Vermont has it all. From bustling cities like Burlington and Newport to ski resorts and beautiful lakes and mountains, Vermont vacations are perfect for the whole family. It won’t vacation the budget, either, as you’ll find affordable Vermont hotels around every corner.

Must-See Vermont Attractions

Church Street Marketplace, Burlington – This historic, award-winning open-air mall is the ideal place to mingle with the locals, enjoy street entertainment, browse art galleries, and shop for souvenirs and local goods. If all that sounds like too much effort you can always simply relax with a coffee and watch the world go by.

Hildene, Manchester – This historic house was once the home of Robert Todd Lincoln, the first son of US President Abraham Lincoln. Today you can tour the house and grounds for some fantastic photo opportunities.

Old Stone House Museum, Newport – This fascinating museum is the place to head for if you want an insight into local history and culture. While you’re in Newport you’ll find plenty of other attractions too.

Top Vacation Destinations In Vermont

1. Montpelier – The state capital is a small, compact city that’s popular with visitors to New England. While you’re here, visit Vermont State House, or take a free tour at the Morse Farm Sugar Works, a sugar house producing delicious maple syrup. For the freshest syrup, come in the spring when it’s made.

2. Green Mountains – Vermont’s oldest and highest mountains are home to the Green Mountain National Forest. Here you may be lucky enough to spot black bears, moose, and coyote while you’re hiking, skiing, fishing or hunting.

3. Lake Champlain – This vast freshwater lake is over 100 miles long and divides Vermont and New York state. It’s the second largest freshwater lake in the United States and is at its most beautiful in fall when the leaves begin to turn. Come here for outdoor activities and camping with the family.

4. Burlington – The city of Burlington lies close to Lake Champlain and is a great place to do some shopping. Head for Church Street Marketplace or shop for local cheese and maple syrup at Burlington Farmers Market. The farmer's markets run from spring through fall outdoors near Church Street and at an alternative venue during the winter months.

5. Manchester – This town in southern Vermont hosts an annual classic and antique car fair every June which fits in with the quaint, old-world atmosphere of the town itself. While you’re here, don’t miss a tour of Hildene and a visit to the American Fly Fishing Museum.

Best Time To Visit Vermont

New England in the fall is breath-taking, which explains why so many people choose to spend their vacation in Vermont when the leaves begin to drop. Spring here is equally beautiful in its own way, and a great time to tour the sugar houses as the maple syrup is flowing. With average annual temperatures of around 43°F, it’s rarely too hot in Vermont, but temperatures in August can rise to around 81°F.

Top Tips And Getting Around Vermont

The easiest way to see everything Vermont has to offer is to rent a car. There are two major interstates crossing the state: I-89 and I-91, as well as a number of highways and byways.
