Here Are 14 Things You Can Only Find In Vermont
Vermont has beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes, covered bridges and more, but there are still a few things that we have that can
only be found in VT. From witch windows to a 1/4 size replica of Fenway Park, here are a few things to find to complete your Vermont bucket list. Happy exploring!
1. Heady Topper Beer
This exclusive and elusive beer is hard to get - even in Vermont!
2. The Von Trapp Family Lodge
When the Von Trapp Family fled from Austria, they chose none other than Stowe, Vermont. The hills were as alive with music as this spot reminded them of their home.
3. Vermont Maple Syrup
Sure, you may find maple syrup made elsewhere, but it's not the same VT Liquid Gold made by hardworking and friendly Vermonters.
From Phish's songs and their live performances to the out of this world gravy fries, this Burlington haunt is world famous and a local favorite.
5. Flavor Graveyard
At the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury, the flavor graveyard pays its respects to retired flavors. RIP Making Whoopie Pie. We miss you, Oh Pear!
6. An arrest warrant for President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
In 2008, voters in Brattleboro and Marlboro instituted an arrest warrant against President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against our Constitution."
7. Vermont Teddy Bears
There are teddy bears everywhere, but these custom made bears are lovable and personal. Hug a bear today!
8. A spider web farm.
Over 12,000 webs have been collected and transformed into works of art at this unique farm in Williamsville.
9. The world's tallest file cabinet (Burlington), ladderback chair (Bennington) and the largest zipper (Barre).
Necessary? No. Lighthearted and fun? Absolutely!
10. A gorilla holding a VW Bug.
It's not everywhere you can see something like Queen Connie - the gorilla statue holding up a car. OK, you probably won't find this ANYWHERE else!
11. A Dog Chapel
What a wonderful way to pay your respects to your four legged friends? This is an amazing place in St. Johnsbury for all dog lovers.
12. Witch Windows
Mostly found in Vermont (specifically Northern Vermont) these slanted windows are both interesting and practical.
13. A presidential birthday party.
The 4th of July isn't your average Independence Day Celebration in Plymouth. Home to president Calvin Coolidge, this is the only U.S. President who was born on the 4th of July.
14. A 1/4 size replica of Fenway Park.
In a backyard in Essex are mini replicas of Fenway Park, Wrigley Field and the Field of Dreams. Some amazing charity games have been played here.
