Fun Things to Do in Vermont
Visit A Farm!
You can’t go to Vermont and not stop by at least one of the many famous, charming farms to marvel at the beautiful nature there. There is a great farm at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park where you can see all the farm animals as well as learn a bit about rural life in the museum exhibits there. Vermont is also known for its gorgeous maple farms, and many take visitors via horse-drawn sled or wagons to be greeted with all kinds of delicious maple products with a glass of hot cider.
My family and I stayed in a wonderful farm house near Stowe, Stony Brook Farm, make sure you read my full experience.
Hit The Slopes!
Vermont in the winter is something out of a movie, with its snow-capped mountains and attractive ski trails that you just have to try! Skiing is a must-try activity in Vermont, and that is why ski resort rentals in Vermont are highly in demand. Make sure you choose one that has professionals teaching you the basics and making sure you’re staying safe. It doesn’t stop at skiing too; you can do things like sledding, snowboarding, and all kinds of other fun winter sports.
If you love those kinds of snow sports, a good choice is to stay at Stowe Mountain Lodge.
Hike On A Mountain
The city is known as the Green Mountain State, and for good reason too, with all its majestic mountain tops. Just like ski resorts, the state is full of mountain resorts where you can stay in a cozy cabin and wake up to stunning views of the mountainside as the sun rises. You can also enjoy activities like a spa day or shopping in the nearest charming village. Hiking up a mountain in Vermont will be one of the best experiences once you reach the top and see the magnificent view. Make sure you visit Toll Road in Stowe!
While on our visit to Vermont we got the chance to hike Spruce Peak in Stowe, I have a full blog post about it, you should check it out.
Take A Historical Tour
Vermont might not seem like it, but there’s a lot of history buried in its corners that is waiting for you to explore. If you want a break from all the adrenaline-packed outdoor activities, plan a historical tour for the day and get to know the city better. Don’t miss out on spots like Vermont Ski Museum, Bennington Battle Monument and Museum, The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, Shelburne Museum, Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, and Montshire Museum of Science.
There are many more things to see and do in Vermont, but these are the most fun things you just have to try out during your visit. It’s important to plan each day to accommodate everything you want to experience without having to skip or miss out because of time. Good planning leads to having the perfect trip, so make sure you get all bookings and activities in order. At the same time, don’t get overwhelmed trying to do everything at once that you find yourself not really enjoying yourself.
