Attractions, Family Fun and Craft Shopping

A wide variety of attractions and activities are tucked into every corner of Vermont. Visit a working farm, our regional museums, tour marble and granite quarries, have a picnic at any of Vermont’s 100-plus covered bridges and be sure to visit ECHO the interactive science center and aquarium at Lake Champlain. And don’t miss the ice cream and chocolate factory tours where, of course, you have to try the samples. If you want to really get moving try one of the five scenic routes offered by the Green Mountain Railroad or select from several types of cruises on Lake Champlain – the 360 passenger Spirit of Ethan Allen cruise ship is a sure bet.

The crafts scene in Vermont is almost like stepping back in time. Watching a potter, glassblower or quilter work their trade is truly inspiring. You will find skilled craftspeople and their work everywhere in the Green Mountains – from large craft festivals to the back yard barn where their magic is made. Shopping is easy and fun in Vermont and most objects d’art are one of a kind cool.
