Discover Montpelier Giveaway

Enter to Win a three-night stay and downtown shopping spree

Welcome to Montpelier, where a taste of Vermont is served daily. Montpelier is the nation's smallest capital, but don't let its small size fool you. Visit Montpelier and you will enjoy small town life coupled with big city amenities.

Set amidst radiant maple trees, Vermont's historic state capital sits just steps from the charming downtown. Montpelier is the only state capital without a McDonald's. Instead, you'll find farm-to-table cuisine and global eateries in this culinary capital. World-class craft beers and live music await at local taverns. Charming boutiques offer world-class fashion and gifts with customer service that you can't find on the internet. Montpelier's Lost Nation Theater has been named one of the best regional theater companies in America by the NYC Drama League. Prefer films? Our two independent movie theaters offer first-run blockbusters and art films, and the Green Mountain Film Festival showcases dozens of award-winning films over the course of ten days each March.

Don't just read about it - you can discover Montpelier for yourself! There's no better time to visit Montpelier than fall, when the hillsides blaze with color and cool autumn evenings feature some of Montpelier's best annual events. Enter to win a three-night stay at the centrally located historic Capital Plaza Hotel, and a downtown shopping spree so you can enjoy all of Montpelier's amazing shopping and dining.
