Northern Vermont

Something for Everyone

Northern Vermont is a four-season destination with big-city amenities, world-class outdoor activities, rural landscapes, miles of open water on lakes and rivers, great shopping and dining, and numerous opportunities for enjoying the arts and history. 

Arts and culture is thriving. Enjoy outdoor concerts, theater performances, gallery openings and local variety shows in cities and towns across the region, or visit cultural and historic sites. Equally rich are the opportunities for shopping and dining. In towns throughout the region you can stroll through farmers markets and gourmet food shops. There are also a large number of restaurants featuring locally grown foods including meats, cheeses, baked goods and confections. 

Outdoorsy? The state's highest mountain, Mt. Mansfield, and perhaps the state's most iconic mountain, Camel's Hump, are havens for outdoor enthusiasts year-round, while the region's many rivers and lakes attract paddlers, boaters and skaters. Bookmark ski resorts in Burke or Jay for jaw-dropping winter sports.
