First and foremost - Vermont is community. The Green Mountains are where you'll find world famous fall foliage, the sweetest maple syrup, historic yet lively downtowns and the most snow (and FUN in the snow) on the east coast. But there is so much more too - the local foods produced by our neighbor-farmers and sold at farmer's markets all year long, the world-class artists, the endless recreational and relaxing opportunities, the ultra-pampering spas and resorts, significant historic sites and pristine State Parks, the classic inns...the treasures of Vermont go on and on.
Don't just take our word for it - National Geographic Traveler features Vermont in its "50 Places of a Lifetime" mobile app! Vermont truly is unlike anywhere else in the world.
Vermont looks at life from its own point of view, and Vermonters are known for their independent thinking, friendliness, honesty, and hospitality. We treasure what nature has given us, and we're committed to preserving it. Our agricultural traditions means open working landscapes, set off by a backdrop of towering evergreens and soaring mountains.
And though you could spend hours simply taking in the scenery, it is even more rewarding to become a part of it. Go for a run or walk one of our country roads. As a bike-friendly state, we invite you to take your road or mountain bike pretty much anywhere. Drop into a halfpipe on your skis or snowboard and share runs with our local Olympians. Hike a mountain trail, or stroll through a covered bridge in one of our villages. Cast a line in a lake or stream. Whatever the day brings, the night is sure to deliver a deep and peaceful sleep - whether you choose to camp under the stars, cozy up under a comforter at a bed & breakfast, or indulge yourself at a luxurious resort.
Vermont's natural heritage covers a lot of areas.The abundance of natural beauty is made even more remarkable by the way it converges: seemingly endless emerald green fields lead to forests crowned by magnificent mountains.
And then there's the water. A little known fact: Vermont is home to over 400 lakes and ponds, plus hundreds of streams. And, Lake Champlain is the sixth largest body of water in the United States. If you're seeking sun and sand - and a place where water can always be a part of the picture - come to Vermont.
In Vermont, one thing is beautifully certain: The seasons will change. And with that change, so does the landscape, the weather, the water, the activities, and the way of life. With every season comes new opportunities to explore the world around you and new possibilities to find yourself, in Vermont.
Vermont is never out of season and we welcome you to visit us any time of year.
