Vermont Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Vermont!
Famous for its country inns, covered bridges, and recreational opportunities such as hiking, biking, and cross country skiing, Vermont has a reputation for being the state with a "mind of its own." Visit Montpelier, the state's capital, which has the oldest and best-kept state house in the union. See Lake Champlain from the shore or on a schooner cruise, or visit one of the area's numerous historic sites. In Burlington, check out the summer jazz music festival. Burlington is also the home of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory, where tours are available for the curious. A trip to the Green Mountains area of Vermont is an absolute must. Manchester is a bastion of outdoor activities and also boasts the American Museum of Fly Fishing, featuring a host of information dedicated to this outdoor pastime. It is the Green Mountains that hold the ski resorts for which Vermont is so well known. Spend some time at Killington/Pico, Stowe, Rutland or one of the several other resorts.
