11 Places In Vermont That Are Better Than Anywhere Else In The Country
It’s a fact: Vermont knows how to do things right. While you’ll find parks, lakes, mountains and eateries everywhere in the world, these places are better in VT if we do say so ourselves. Here are 11 places we simply love here, and we think you will too.
1. Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park
This is one of Vermont's newest State Parks and it's incredible. You'll find, among other special spots, a Japanese garden at this park in Hubbardton.
2. Colchester Causeway
While you'll find bike paths all over the world, there is nothing like whizzing along with Lake Champlain flanking both sides. This ride is surreally beautiful.
3. Lake Memphremagog
It may be tough to pronounce, but it sure is beautiful to look at! Lake Memphremagog lies between the international border in Newport, Vermont and Magog, Quebec, Canada.
4. Hen of the Wood
This farm to table restaurant in Waterbury has made many lists as being one of the
best in the world!
5. Mt. Mansfield
The best place to Ski the East is on Vermont's highest peak at the Stowe Mountain Resort. The many trails along with fantastic vertical drops is a skier and snowboarder's dream come true!
6. Vermont Country Store
As the saying for all country stores in the Green Mountain State goes: If they don't have it, you don't need it! These local one stop shops are both practical and fun!
7. Rock of Ages
This quarry in Barre is a feast for the eyes. If you have never taken a tour of this spectacular site, be sure to put it on your bucket list immediately!
8. Route 100
Arguably one of the prettiest drives in all of Vermont. Enjoy it year round, but don't miss it when foliage rolls around!
9. Moss Glen Falls
Vermont is full of beautiful waterfalls, and this stunner in Granville is visible right from the road. No hiking required!
10. Lake Champlain
Whether you hit the beach, hop on a boat or enjoy a meal on a floating restaurant, Lake Champlain will never disappoint. It's magnificent!
11. Manchester Designer Outlets
You won't find any of these outlets in box stores or strip malls, folks! The charm surrounds you as you pop in and out of these shops in a beautiful setting.
