4. Fall foliage.
Whether you favor the early pops of color against the green, or the vast display during peak foliage, fall in Vermont is something to marvel at.
5. Shelburne Farms in Shelburne is not your ordinary farm.
This 1,400-acre working farm, forest, & National Historic Landmark is also a non-profit organization which educates visitors, has a lovely inn and acts as a stunning backdrop for events.

9. The magnificent Long Trail.
This 272 mile impeccably maintained trail travels the length of Vermont and boasts some of the best views in Vermont.
10. Visit the blooming gardens at the Von Trapp Family Lodge.
The hills are alive at the Von Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe. Twists and turns of vibrant colors, breathtaking scenery and unexpected surprises.
11. Rock out at the Rock of Ages in Barre.
Granite is indeed a rock of ages, as it withstands the test of time. This amazing quarry is beautiful and the tours are informative. After checking out the quarry, head over to the nearby Hope Cemetery whose monuments are nothing short of works of art made from granite from the Rock of Ages quarry.
12. Whispering Statue, Barre
This war memorial from the 1920s, also known as "Youth Triumphant," has an acoustic anomaly you won't believe. If you sit at one end of the circular structure and whisper, the person at the opposite end can hear you as clearly as if you were whispering right in their ear. I can personally vouch for this one.
13. Challenge your fear of heights at the Quechee Gorge.
Whether you look down at the deep gorge from the bridge above...
Or you explore it from below, you'll see why people call the gorge "Vermont's Little Grand Canyon."
14. Harry Barber's Miniature Castles.
In South Hero you'll find several castles by Harry Barber; he used small stones to replicate the castles from his native Switzerland. Miniature, fascinating and absolutely wonderful.
