Although Vermont, also known as the Green Mountain State, is the second least populated US state (after only Wyoming), it is known to be one of the most welcoming. Numerous bed and breakfasts, inns, and cabins will greet you upon your arrival to their breathtaking state. Explore all that Vermont has to offer – fishing, beaches, fairs, festivals, museums, galleries, shopping, skiing…and the list doesn’t end there! Some of the most visited Vermont cities and towns are Alburg, Burlington, Killington, Middlebury, Montpelier, Mount Snow, Rutland, Stowe, Troy (Jay Peak), and Woodstock.
Vermont offers so much for everyone to enjoy and many museums to learn from. If you're a pancake lover, be sure to not miss the New England Maple Museum, where you can learn all about the manufacturing of Vermont maple syrup. A slide show and tastings (yes, tastings!) are included. If you're a history buff, however, be sure to visit the Old Constitution House and Museum in Windsor, where Vermont's first state constitution was written.
If you're ready to get blown away, visit famous glassblower Simon Pearce's Historic Mill where you can watch the production of world-class glass and pottery. Afterwards, treat yourself to a gourmet meal overlooking the falls of the Ottauquechee River at the Simon Pearce Restaurant (said to be one of VT's finest).
Adventure and nature enthusiasts traveling to Vermont love the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. It's a long-distance paddling trail that connects the major watersheds across the Adirondacks and northern New England. It's 740 miles long and goes through New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire and Maine, linking 79 bodies of water, 45 communities, three wildlife refuges, and passes through hills and mountains, forest, farmlands and village centers. Don't worry though – you don't have to canoe/kayak the entire 740 miles!
