Vermont Welcomes LGBTQ+ Visitors

Vermont is proud to welcome you

Vermont’s beautiful landscapes and unique attractions and celebrations draw visitors of all gender and sexual identities. Here you’ll find local communities extending an open invitation, enshrined in strong government support of LGBTQ+ rights. In July of 2000 Vermont became first in the nation to allow civil unions, and in 2009, the first state to legislatively legalize same-sex marriage. We welcome you to Vermont with open arms and hope that you will visit and experience our culture, scenic beauty, unbound culinary experiences and world-class amenities.
