But you're going to want to stop and explore each and every one of these charming towns in Vermont.
Charlotte has that small town charm while being close to Burlington. Perfect for a side trip or a road trip through them all!
Whether you explore the village or hit the slopes, Stowe is a wonderful town that has something for everyone.
Quintessential Cabot contains several ponds and dairy farms and is the headquarters of the Cabot Creamery. A deliciously wonderful town!
This charming town has a town center that you won't want to miss. Check out the town crier, which is a chalkboard in the center of town where locals can write about current happenings.
Chester is famous for its Stone Village Historic District and Chester Village Historic District, and both districts are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Stone Village section is known for the many houses made of local granite.
Grafton, now best known for its charm and its cheese, was originally founded as Thomlinson, but renaming rights were auctioned in 1791. The high bidder, who reportedly offered "five dollars and a jug of rum," changed the name to Grafton after his home town of Grafton, Massachusetts. Possibly as a result of having celebrated a bit too much with the rum (some say it was hard cider), the money was never collected, but the new name remained.
It may be small, but boy is it mighty. In 2006, Putney passed a resolution endorsing the impeachment of President George W. Bush.
Hit the designer outlets and more in the lovely town of Manchester.
