Vermont for Kids

Vermont Means Family Fun

Kids love all Vermont has to offer, from the chance to get up close and personal with farms and animals to opportunities to play outside and learn about nature to exploring small downtowns with the family. If your family is Vermont-based, find an adventure to enjoy with the kids this summer; if you’re still waiting to visit us in the Green Mountains, enjoy virtual Vermont while you wait, or just daydream with your kids about the visits to come.
