CENTRAL VERMONT

An Historical and Vibrant Region

Home of the Vermont State House

Small villages and historic downtowns offer theaters, galleries, craft studios, local shops, museums, farms, historic sites and diverse outdoor recreation that provides an abundance of activity throughout this region.

Central Vermont home to Vermont's living museum of political history, the Vermont State House, still the seat of government more than 150 years after its construction. Visitors also flock to Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream, the natural wonder of Quechee Gorge, and Rock of Ages granite quarries.

Bakeries and cafes offer delicious goods, some baked with locally grown wheat using traditional recipes. Farmer's markets feature produce, maple syrup and artisnal cheese. Look for high-quality handcrafts - from blown glass and fine jewelry to furniture in local shops, woodworking studios and galleries.
