Family-Friendly Vermont

THE LANDSCAPE ISN’T THE ONLY ATTRACTION

Family traditions are forged and fortified in Vermont. Whether your clan is into midweek field trips to a Vermont museum or historic site, a mountain getaway, a shopping weekend, camping getaway or a hunting trip, families come home from time in Vermont closer and more tightly bonded than ever. Historic sites, museums, and other educational centers are an impactful way to keep your kids entertained while strengthening critical thinking skills and building knowledge. Save time for some fun on the trails, whether skiing and hiking

Each season leaves kids wanting more, and has grownups feeling like kids again. Spring means maple syrup, summer has long days for playing outside, fall is the time for harvesting, great local foods and our famous fall foliage, and winter means skiing and riding.
