So here is a nice 3 day trip through VT. Some trip is fun with your spouse or with your kids, grandkids
Depending on what you do, can do, find time to do, this trip has a little something for everyone. Below are links to many of the places for this trip.
These are fun places to explore and get away for a while. Enjoy time with loved ones and heck eat some Ice Cream, it doesn’t get much better than that folks.
Depending on when you do this trip, you could easily add Lost River – http://www.lostrivergorge.com and or Polar Caves – http://www.polarcaves.com to this trip (Anytime after May)
The stops outlined are just a few of the many stops and things there are to do in the area. Ben & Jerrys is a great place to start. tour the factory, check out the cemetery out back and see all head stones of the gone for good and never made it ice creams, after this get yourself a big sundae and enjoy.
After this head on over to Cold Hollow Cider Store / Mill (you will pass a Chabot Creamery / outlet store https://www.cabotcheese.coop/cabot-farmers-store along the way, and a blown glass shop where you can watch as they make some amazing things – http://zglassblowing.com
Manchester Blown Glass for those wanting to do blow glass yourself! Another trip, another day.
Ok, so back to this trip. After these stops, you can head over to Stowe, VT, head on over to Burlington. Stowe is a great little town, with plenty to see and do and heck, you are so close, I’d do it. Get out walk around, check out the side streets, so much to see and do.
From here, while there is more to do in the area, you can’t do everything, so I’d head over to Burlington but if you want to do more here, I’d consider heading over to Smugglers’ Notch – https://vtstateparks.com/smugglers.html
Ok, if you have gone on to Burlington, another area with a ton to see and do.
• City Parks
• Bike Paths, Walking Paths
• Lake Champlain
Consider taking a ferry ride to NY? If you do, you’ll want to think about another trip, because there is so much to do, once on the other side (NY)
The Adirondack region has 4 days worth of places to go and things to see. Lake Placid, see the hockey rink, where the great “Miracle on Ice” USA Olympic Hockey Game took place. Walk and explore downtown Lake Placid. Go Fly Fishing, Explore the region, with over 100 places to see and experience, and yes, PLENTY of great places to eat.
Walk around Mirror Lake, go to Saranac Lake’s Region. See all the Olympic villages, ski jumps and so much more
Ok, so we are not doing the NY trip here, let’s get back to the VT area. From downtown Burlington, just a short walk or drive, you have the Aquarium, walking paths and the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory, a nice 30 – 45 minute distraction. After this you can go to Dankin Farm store, or head on over to the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, were you can make your own Teddy Bear. WAY to many options, but a ton of fun for kids and adults alike.
OK, so now it’s on to Mt. Philo (opens in spring or a brisk walk in the winter to the top). Awesome views of the Lake Champlain Region and parts of NY.
Depending on time, who you are and are with, and budget, you should schedule time at the Shelburne Museum – https://shelburnemuseum.org
