Vermont- one of our nations Smallest states and in a ratio of cows to people .. well you know the answer!
Vermont- one of the best places to experience the change of seasons!
What else makes Vermont unique?? Well here are a few quick facts …
The Trapp Family made famous with the movie starring Julie Andrews and the musical “Sound of Music” settled in Vermont and descendants still own and run the Trapp Family Lodge- beautiful location and beer! Stowe is popular in the fall and you can often ride the ski lifts and gondolas to get some incredible views of the foliage and not worry about knowing how to ski!
The ONLY President to have been born on the 4th of July – Calvin Coolidge was born in Plymouth Vermont and sworn in by candlelight there and you can see this small village today as it was .. and do some Cheese tasting! Crunch thru the old leaves, and watch a hundreds year old cheese process and sample some!
Vermont also is the Nation’s largest producer of Maple Syrup so why not just go and see the trees it comes from! Many of the farms that produce Maple Syrup from the very trees whose beautiful leaves we love to see are open for tasting- and of course walking!
And there is Ben and Jerry’s where bus loads now stop to walk thru the factory, sample some new flavors and check out the graveyard of lost flavors. Ben and Jerry’s buys its milk from local dairies supporting local farmers and its waste goes back to the cows- except I understand Oreo- they don;t seem to enjoy that flavor!
So grab a bag- and head out to Vermont- and if you are looking for lodging I still know some local gems to wake up and smell the fresh coffee brewing!
