Vermont is called the Green Mountain State for good reason. The French explorer who discovered Vermont was awestruck by its lush green mountains, and you will be, too.
Vermont's a lovely escape in any season. For planning purposes, the state can be divided into northern, central, and southern regions.
One of Vermont's top must-visit cities is sporty Stowe in Northern Vermont. Skiers, golfers, hikers, and sightseers will delight in Mount Mansfield, Smuggler's Notch State Park, and Stowe Mountain ski resort. Also in Northern Vermont is Burlington, the state's largest city and home to the University of Vermont. Burlington hotels are plentiful. Located on the banks of Lake Champlain, it's a quintessential New England waterfront city that's just 45 miles from Canada. Rent a car and pack your passport! (Any of the major hotels in Vermont can provide advice about entering Canada.)
In Central Vermont, explore capital city Montpelier. Don't miss the grand State House and Vermont Historical Society Museum. Also visit Killington to hike the Appalachian and Thundering Falls trails and ski at Killington Resort.
Southern Vermont is home to Brattleboro, Vermont's fourth largest town and one of the country's best small arts towns. Enjoy find galleries, artsy theaters, live music venues, outstanding coffeehouses, and the Brattleboro Farmers' Market, one of the region's best. Also in the south, the old iron-mine town of Manchester is a photographer's dream with its iconic white-steeple church standing in stark contrast to the bucolic background. Don't miss Hildene; the former home of Robert Todd Lincoln (President Lincoln's only son who lived to adulthood) features lush gardens, a goat farm, cheese-making operations, and winter cross-country ski paths.
