WELCOME TO VERMONT
Nicknamed the Green Mountain State from the French “les monts vert”, Vermont is a special place with some notable characteristics. For example, Vermont’s state capital, Montpelier, is the smallest state capital in the U.S, and the only capital without a McDonald’s. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of other food options for you to choose from thanks to our amazing local culinary culture.
In 1968, Vermont banned billboards (one of only 4 states in the country to do so) and you’ll be so glad we did. No billboards means beautiful pristine views as far as the eye can see which makes our outdoor recreation options that much better. Not to mention the fact that Vermont is one of the healthiest states in the U.S. so you know we’re serious about our outdoor fun!
Vermont is also home to the highest concentration of sugar maple trees in the U.S., responsible for creating the deep fiery red and orange colors of the fall foliage season. All of those trees make for magnificent vistas and lots of maple syrup, making Vermont the largest producer of syrup in the country.
