12 Gorgeous Beaches in Vermont You Have To Check Out This Summer

When people think of Vermont, they often picture mountains, lakes and forests along with the quintessential towns and covered bridges. While these things are abundant in the Green Mountain State, beaches are often an afterthought. The truth is our beaches are not only wonderful, but they are nestled on the shores of our beautiful lakes with fabulous mountain vistas in the distance. Here are 12 gorgeous beaches that are located in some of the wonderful Vermont State Parks. The parks are impeccably maintained and each beach has restroom facilities with running water, and many have onsite boat rentals and snack bars. Beaching has never been so easy!

From hiking and camping, to boating and beaching, the VT State Parks have everything you could need or want to have the most epic summer ever. Pick a beach and start planning for the next sunny day!
