Vermont has so many picture perfect views, it’s hard to choose a favorite one. However, sometimes pictures aren’t just postcard worthy – they are straight out of a fairy tale. Thankfully we appreciate the little things and often stop to take in the enchanting moments as well as the classic vistas. We then find ourselves in a land that appears to be, well, charmed. Here are some instances that will show you that sometimes Vermont is as magical as a fairy tale.
