Historic Downtown Waterbury

Vibrant, Community-Minded and Welcoming

Nestled in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains, Waterbury’s historic downtown connects three of Vermont’s most scenic roads, including Route 100 and Route 2. Home to innovators like Ben & Jerry's and Keurig Dr. Pepper, as well as small, locally owned businesses, Waterbury is a place of dynamic experiences, welcoming accommodations and engaging events, where you can find locally-sourced cuisine and refreshments. Our historic downtown makes for an ever-changing backdrop for outdoor activities and home to sculptors, artists, creators and makers. 

Our mountain bike trails, river walk, parks, and reservoir are unrivaled places to satisfy your greatest outdoor pursuits. From here, you can be on the slopes in no time, enjoying a refreshing paddle in a Vermont state park, or testing your mettle on some of the finest mountain biking trails in the state.
