These 13 Vermont Towns Might Be Tiny But Their Restaurants Are Fantastic
While finding a great meal in Vermont isn’t hard, usually the restaurants we all know and love are in more densely populated areas. While Vermont isn’t a big place, or even a busy place, if you want to get out of the well traveled towns and a little more into the country for a delicious meal, here are some of your best bets.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
