Vermont, the Green Mountain State, is not only a great place for a weekender, but an extended holiday as well. Visitors to Vermont receive a cozy, old-fashioned welcome at lodgings from small Bed & Breakfasts to major resorts with spas and other luxuries. Have a go at skiing or snowboarding on one of the many mountains in the Winter, or enjoy favorite Summer activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, or paddling and of course playing golf on smoothly groomed hillsides can be enjoyed Spring, Summer, and Fall.

If you want to escape from the urban sprawl, Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, has only 39,000 year-round residents and Montpelier, the state capital, about 8,000, yet these small cities have attractions of their own, with historic sites featuring the people and places of the American Revolution, fascinating museums as well as art, theater and music venues. Take a scenic train tour of Vermont with the Green Mountain Railroad or visit Vermont tourist attractions such as the natural beauty of the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center or the color of Autumn in any part of the state. Or visit the Lincoln family home in Manchester. We all know about Abraham Lincoln and his ties to the state of Illinois but did you know that Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Mary Todd and Abraham Lincoln to survive to adulthood, built his Georgian Revival mansion in 1905 in the scenic village of Manchester? He became Chairman of the Pullman Palace Car Company, the largest American manufacturing corporation at the turn of the 20th century. His family and his descendants lived there until 1975.

Good New England cooking, relaxed country atmosphere, history, art, big time resorts and small country B & Bs, Vermont has it waiting for you.
