Things to see in Vermont
Perhaps the biggest draw of Vermont is the beautiful landscape and the incredible fall foliage that blazes throughout September and October. Considered by many to be the best in the country (or even the world), it’s a stunning, magical sight to behold. With so much of the state covered in forest it’s easy to see anywhere, but you can also visit the many ski resorts to catch a lift to a number of higher vantage points. Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home, is an attraction that is also well worth visiting. You can take a tour of the historical mansion, stroll around the delightful gardens, enjoy miles of hiking trails, and visit the farm (where they even make their own goat cheese). If you’re in central Vermont, be sure to visit Quechee Gorge, situated in Quechee State Park. The 165-foot-deep gorge and surrounding area is particularly beautiful during fall, and there are some relaxing hiking trails to enjoy.
Where to stay in Vermont
A stay in one of the many resort towns in the Green Mountains, such as Killington Mountain Resort or Okemo Mountain Resort, is always an outstanding choice. As well as providing beautiful mountainous landscape to enjoy, there are lots of recreational activities to pursue. The largest city, Burlington, is located right next to the stunning Lake Champlain, and thanks to its vast choice of restaurants and craft breweries, it’s the perfect place for foodies and beer aficionados. If you’re traveling on a budget and seeking discount hotels in Vermont, Burlington’s suburb of Shelburne is an excellent choice. As well as affordable accommodation, it hosts popular attractions such as the Shelburne Museum and Shelburne Farms.
