Vermont may be the sixth-smallest state in the United States, but its picturesque beauty and laid-back charms offer an outsized New England experience. Vermont has something for every type of traveler: miles of open highway and stunning seasonal foliage for road-trippers, quaint weekend getaways for couples, world-class ski resorts for families, and authentic local cuisine for foodies.
Thanks to the majestic Green Mountain range, which extends south to north for nearly 250 miles, Vermont is home to some of the best alpine areas in the Northeast. Both skiers and snowboarders will find worthwhile runs in classic mountain towns such as Stowe, Killington, Stratton, and Burlington. Outdoor activities can also be enjoyed during warmer months—hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, and kayaking are just some of the adrenaline-pumping experiences.
Travelers who prefer more leisurely pursuits can check out culinary epicenters such as Montpelier, where sampling Vermont’s famous maple syrup and cheddar cheese is a requisite (and therefore guilt-free) activity.
