Touring Vermont's Byways are a great way to get off the highway and see what makes Vermont special. Warmer spring days just beckon you to go outside! Be sure to stop in the country stores and talk with the owners. Every byway is different, so drive, bicycle, or ride as many as you can.
The best way to experience Vermont is to leave the highways and travel the secondary roads.
