Can I camp right on the water in Vermont?

Yes! There are so many wonderful waterfront campgrounds in Vermont. We especially love pitching our tents at Emerald Lake State Park. As its name suggests, this area is known for its gorgeous, verdant waters. You can also rent boats while you’re in the area and spend a day on the water! For more fun, visit Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow. The babbling waters of Buffalo Brook always put smiles on people’s faces. Plus, you don’t even have to “rough it” if you don’t want to! There are plenty of furnished cottages available to rent. For more information about these awesome places, check out our full article about the best beach campgrounds in Vermont

Which hikes in Vermont are short and sweet?

The views at Mt. Olga in Wilmington never cease to amaze, and best of all, the entire hike is less than two miles long! That’s right – a 1.8-mile loop will lead you to some of the most breathtaking scenery the state has to offer. For more fun, explore Mount Hor in Sutton. This entire journey will only take you about 1.5 hours, and it’s perfect for the entire family. We also love meandering through Owl's Head Trail in Groton. It’s especially gorgeous during fall when the autumn leaves shimmer in the sunlight.
