Numerous restaurants, shops, and galleries in Windsor are within easy walking or cycling distance from the train station. The American Precision Museum is one anchor of the second largest Historic District in Vermont. A community theater is forming in the rail yards, providing a variety of seasonal entertainment and music. Taxi service and car rentals are available for more adventurous travel while in Vermont.

Artisan’s Park is a new type of destination with glassblowers, cheese makers, a brewery, a distillery, and a manufacturer of quality jams and preserves on site so you can see it made and sample the products. The park is also home to a restaurant and many music events, from festivals to jazz trios, are preformed in the distillery. The Path of Life Garden is 10 acres of sculpture, a maze, and quiet places to sit along the river and in sight of Mt. Ascutney.

With 4 miles of mountain bike trails adjacent to downtown, and another 24 miles of more advanced trails a few miles away at Mt. Ascutney, Paradise Sports is convenient for rentals and your equipment needs. The Vermont Mountain Bike Festival has been held on local trails numerous times in the last few years. Harpoon Brewing sponsors several road cycling events each summer as well. North Star Canoe rentals provides shuttle service and a boat landing right downtown. Adjacent to downtown, a nature preserve called "Paradise" is actively used by hikers, birders, and fishermen. Mt. Ascutney, a short distance from town, is another great hike as well as a launching point for hang gliders and parasailing.

Finish your weekend with brunch in town before the southbound train departs in late morning for a peaceful ride home after enjoying the simple pleasure of what living in Vermont is all about.
