Where can I find an indoor lazy river in Vermont?
There’s nothing like relaxing on a Vermont lazy river in the summertime. But if you’d prefer the manmade variety, head to the Pump House Indoor Waterpark at Jay’s Peak Resort. Open from May through October, the Pump House has waterslides, a double barrel flowrider, a deepwater activity pool with a climbing wall and more, a splash zone for smaller kids – and of course, Big River, named after the Johnny Cash song. The river winds around the perimeter of the entire park, with plenty of features to keep it more exciting than your average lazy river – like rapids, strong currents, and “exploding depth charges.”
What are some other fun outdoor summertime activities in Vermont?
With plenty of hiking trails, beautiful state parks, vibrant farmers’ markets, cool lakes, and even waterfall swimming holes, you’re unlikely to get bored in the summertime in Vermont. Try these Vermont summer day trips to explore the best of what the Green Mountain State has to offer.
What is there to do indoors in the summer in Vermont?
If you’re less than tolerant of the summer heat, there are also lots of unique things to do in Vermont indoors. Visit one of Vermont’s many museums, like the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, the Vermont Marble Museum, the Tilting at Windmills Gallery, the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum, or the Montshire Museum of Science – just to name a few. If museums aren’t your thing, try going in search of Vermont antiques, or visit the three-story Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, with a cafe attached in case you get hungry or thirsty wandering through the bookshelves. If you prefer video games to reading (or enjoy both), visit The Archives, an arcade bar in Burlington with craft beer and arcade games from the ’80s and ’90s.
