OPEN WORKING LANDSCAPES AMID A BACKDROP OF MOUNTAINS

Vermonters are known for their independent-thinking, friendliness, sportiness, and resourcefulness. The state’s residents love the land and are committed to preserving, as well as sharing it. Vermont’s agricultural traditions have created open working landscapes amid a backdrop of mountains, many of which make up the nation’s oldest long distance hiking trail, the Long Trail.

While it’s easy to spend days simply taking in the scenery, it’s even more rewarding to become a part of it. It’s easy to explore back roads and well-maintained trails by bicycle. Go for a run or walk along busy downtown paths or quiet villages with covered bridges. Drop into a half-pipe on your skis or snowboard and share the trail with local Olympians. Cast a line in a lake or stream, or relax beach-side at a pristine state park. Whatever the day brings, the night is sure to deliver a solid night’s rest - whether you choose to camp under the stars, cozy up under a quilt at an inn, or appreciate the thread-count at a luxurious resort.
