Vermont's charm is revealed anew with each season. This latest September 2013 update builds on a robust collection of fun things to do outdoors. Itineraries take you to the most gorgeous regions when the landscape is blanketed with snow, foliage, summertime green -- even in those gnarly 'tween seasons, you'll find great beauty here.
You'll get comprehensive lists of recommended winter events, and a host of winter 2013 listings to inspire you when the temperature takes a dive: skiing, skating, dogsledding, snowshoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, Christmas tree farms, maple sugaring, and more.
This app is your perfect traveling companion in any season, with seven tailor-made road trips covering every corner of the state. Each itinerary showcases a particular region: the peaks, hiking and skiing trails, and bikepaths of the northern Green Mountains; the lakeside orchards, farm stands, and pumpkin patches of the Champlain Valley; or the historical sites, white steeples, and village greens of central and southern Vermont.
Wherever you go, we'll help you find what you're looking for:
• Vermont classics: village greens and covered bridges, general stores, cheese makers, and state parks; all the iconic Vermont stuff you want to see, accompanied by GPS maps.
• Offbeat treats: the fossils in the floor of the Vermont State House, the Dog Chapel in St Johnsbury, or the 'three-in-a-row' series of covered bridges in Northfield Falls.
• Local secrets and personal favorites: swimming holes, scenic back roads, an unexpected peephole in the floor of Pawlet's general store that lets you look down on the waterfall below, and more.
To top it all off, each of our seven itineraries can easily be driven in a weekend, or you can string multiple itineraries together into a week-long tour of the entire state. Alternatively, browse all 250 entries individually by category, or dive in randomly wherever you like.
