Fall For Vermont

Change Is In The Air

The beauty and splendor of a Vermont autumn has attained mythical status when it comes to sightseeing, atmosphere and must-do adventures. 

With forests covering three-quarters of our state, and the highest percentage of vibrant maple trees in the country, Vermont explodes with colors once the leaves start to turn. Whether you are touring the state on a scenic byway, or enjoying a crisp autumn hike outdoors, everywhere you look in Vermont during the fall months is alive with bursting reds, oranges and yellows. 

Adding to the natural beauty of autumn in Vermont are a variety of festivals, events and activities that help celebrate the season. Harvesting fruits and vegetables, visiting farms, pumpkin patches and corn mazes, and game hunting are among the host of ways to enjoy the outdoors that make this such a special time of year.
