Vermont... Outdoors at its Best

There are plenty of good reasons to visit Vermont, from the splendor of the fall foliage around Montpelier to biking near Stowe. As you travel through Vermont take time to sample some of the fabulous maple syrup at the many Maple Sugarhouses or experience the serenity of Vermont's covered bridges. While in Burlington be sure to see Church Street Marketplace, a four-block 19th-century and Art Deco walkway lined with shops, cafes and restaurants.

Southern Vermont, a scenic delight and haven for outdoor activity, is also a culturally sophisticated region. Windham County is blessed with a dynamic artistic community where art galleries, theater, and music thrive. Savvy travelers skip the malls to browse country stores, gallery-style shops and artist's studios in Southeastern Vermont's towns and villages in search of locally-made goods and one-of-a-kind artisan gifts. With a multitude of small organic farms plus many artisan cheese makers, bakers, specialty food producers and farmer's markets, the true taste test of Southern Vermont just might be a year-round smorgasbord of homegrown flavors and sophisticated eating.
