Traveling between New York, New York and Burlington, Vermont? Don't bother flying. Driving is unlikely to cost you more in money or time (a gas tank and 5 hours, respectively). Take the trip in autumn and you'll get the eye-popping benefit of...
14 The Green, Woodstock, VT 05091, USA
The Woodstock Inn has a Rockefeller pedigree and the best setting in town. Bartenders are knowledgable about activities in the area, and rooms are spacious and comfortable. The gift shop features the work of several local woodworkers and glass...
Kent Pond, Killington, VT 05751, USA
Fantastic photo site particularly at dusk. This photo was taken after the sun had set. All you need is a tripod. The lake was formed thanks to the Kent Pond Dam that flows into the Gifford Woods Stat Forest Park near Killington. The picture is the...
28 North St, Bristol, VT 05443, USA
Almost Home is one of those lucky finds that make you want to return soon to repeat a lovely experience. The fact that we stumbled upon it at all was thanks to a failed attempt at revisiting another lucky find. When we found that the cafe housed...
69 Old River Road (Rte 12N & Old River Road), Woodstock, VT 05091, USA
Who remembers their very first drink? Likely not a single person- but these gals provide first drinks for many, along with a great libation for cookies and cakes... We visited the Billings Farm Museum (here the Ritz Carlton of dairy farms) while...

20 State Park Beach Rd, Barnard, VT 05031, USA

3171, 27 State St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA
We stopped at Capital Grounds on our way to Woodstock for a weekend of scarlet and ochre sightings during Vermont's foliage season. The latte was one of the best I've had this side of Rome and the chicken, artichoke, spinach, provolone sandwich...
284 Main St, Warren, VT 05674, USA
Head to the Warren Store for the best in staple Vermont products like cheese, maple syrup and beer. The second floor also offers a great variety of locally produced clothing and household items. The Store's other big draw is its fresh-made deli...

Welcome discovery traveling down Vermont's famous Route 4. Family activities abound, but plenty to keep a solo traveler busy. You can find a refreshing morning hike that starts with a dizzying walk over a very high gorge. The accompanying village...
A hidden gem among local hikers. This small but ample trail system provides enough mileage for day hikers looking for up and back loops. Terrain is easy enough for kids to enjoy and there is surely enough flora and fauna around to pique their...
