It's Time for Vermont

The past year flew by. The traditional harvest season is a time to reap the delicious rewards of your gardening labor and to reflect on the hard work that has led you to this point in life. With reflection, fond memories appear in your personal highlight reel. This beautiful thing called life can move you in multiple directions at once. Family obligations. Work deadlines. News headlines. Social media scrolls. It can be exhausting. You deserve a moment to breath – inhale deeply and take in the sweet aromas of cinnamon, apple pies, and pumpkin spice.

Welcome to autumn; when the light softens, the nights bring the comfort of a cool breeze, the morning air is crisp, and Vermont’s hillsides begin to explode with vivid oranges, yellows, and reds.

Beyond the foliage, arguably the best part about fall in Vermont is the endless events and activities to choose from. It’s a great time of year to plan one last camping trip, attend a live concert, go mountain biking, hiking, or cast in one of Vermont’s 809 lakes and ponds. On a rainy day, head indoors and visit an art gallery or museum. This fall, it’s time for a change.

This fall, It’s Time for Vermont.
