What are the most unique towns in Vermont?

Stowe is a one-of-a-kind town that manages to fit a busy tourist destination into a tiny village without ever feeling too crowded. Come in the springtime and you’ll have the place practically to yourself, which makes it easy to get to know local life. Visit Chester to see Stone Village Historic District and Chester Village Historic District. Many of these historic homes were made with local granite! Woodstock may not be as famous as the other Woodstock, but it’s a charming town with a vibrant community that’s sure to capture your heart.

What’s the most beautiful hike in Vermont?

The hike to Bingham Fall’s in Stowe is one worth taking! It’s only about twenty minutes to the falls, but the beautiful mountain landscape is sure to impress. The hike to Falls of Lana in Salisbury will take you up from the shores of Lake Dunmore into the foothills of Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, making for a scenic trek in any season.

Does Vermont have any natural wonders?

The Green Mountain State is full of beauty and remarkable natural wonders. Some of our favorites include Lake Dunmore, at the base of Mt. Moosalamoo. It’s the gateway to Green Mountain National Forest! Another one of our favorite lakes, Lake Ninevah, is in Mt. Holly, along the Eastern Gateway region. Quechee Gorge is a must-visit spot that many locals refer to as Vermont’s Grand Canyon thanks to the enormous gorge and cascade waterfall. Smuggler’s Notch is home to a few natural wonders, too – there are a handful of caves and the beautiful Bingham Falls.
