Stratton Mountain
Vermont Farm in Autumn
Christmas in Burlington

The rolling hills and mountains of Vermont set the most picturesque scene for all the working farms, covered bridges and country stores that it's renowned for. Billings Farm & Museum and The Vermont Country Store are just a couple of examples of country living at its finest that you can sample. You may also catch the annual hot air balloon festivals if you visit in the summer months.


Farmers Market


In the heart of Vermont's green mountains lies every skier's dream... three of the top named ski resorts in New England (Okemo, Killington and Sugarbush). The summer months bring hiking and mountain biking in the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, as well as numerous other state parks. Spring is a perfect time for the family to visit the many local attractions, such as Billings Farm and Museum and Cold Hollow Cider Mill.

Sleigh Ride


Way up in the northern wilderness of Vermont is where you'll find family attractions like Shelburne Farms and ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. A visit to Smugglers' Notch Resort will keep everyone in your family busy any time of the year. Autumn is the perfect season for leaf peeping, as you take a scenic tour of the many covered bridges of the region.

Vermont Country Store


Southern Vermont is comprised of some of the most picture perfect villages and towns you'll ever see, full of charming boutiques and galleries. Be sure to add The Vermont Country Store to your itinerary, and you might just want to stop by The Apple Barn & Country Bake Shop for some fresh produce and delicious baked goods before you leave town. Car lovers will want to stop in to Hemmings Car Lover's Store and Sunoco Station, where they will wash your windows and check your oil, and even give your dog a bone. There is also a gift shop stocked full of automobile fanatic memorabilia.
