Admire the 100 mile view lookout from the observation deck at the the Hogback Mountain Gift Shop and observation deck located at 7627 Rt 9 in Wilmington.
This historic town is full of wonderful things to see, but don't pass through without checking out the Bellows Falls petroglyphs.
You'll find two clusters of petroglyphs and their origin is unknown. Various hypothesis estimate they are anywhere from 300 - 3,000 years old and many believe the Abenaki are responsible for putting the faces there. Their legends say that when a person dies, their soul travels west, and these would provide useful markers for the spirits to know they were headed in the right direction.
You'll see many covered bridges as you drive through Vermont, but there is a floating bridge in Brookfield that's not to be missed!
Take an audio tour of the Vermont State House with an audio tour. These self guided tours are available in English, French, Spanish, and German and allow you to move at your own pace while learning about the building.
Check out the flavor graveyard at the Ben & Jerry's factory and pay your respects to the flavors that have been put to rest.
Make a stop at the Old Round Church. This is
one of the few remaining round churches standing and it's pristine.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the bustling Church Street Marketplace.
The iconic image of the mountains flanking the stunning Lake Willoughby is worth seeing in any - and all - seasons.
Begin or end your road trip in Canada! The Haskell Free Library and Opera House lies on the international border, with half in Derby Line, Vermont and the other half in Stanstead, Quebec. It was intentionally built this way and we're thankful for the unique opportunity to see it!
