A Very Vermont Valentine's Day
Beautiful winter snowscapes, cozy places to hunker down and some of the finest food and craft beverage anywhere make Vermont a haven for Valentine’s Day retreats. Vermont has plenty to offer for the loved ones in your life this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re located in the Green Mountains or planning a Vermont visit, enjoy the sweetness of the season.
1. ChocolateIt’s a classic for a reason – you can’t go wrong with handcrafted Vermont chocolates, truffles, bars or gift packages. Shop our Vermont chocolate trail (it’s best to check with individual retailers about shipping) and support some of Vermont’s hardworking local chocolatiers. Vermont Nut Free Chocolates crafts allergy-conscious delights.
2. Craft BeveragesStaying home with a sampler flight of some of your favorite Vermont craft brews sounds like a cozy Valentine’s Day to us. Discover Vermont’s breweries and find a few new pours to try; if you’re local, pick some up, and if you’re outside the Green Mountains, check out these nine regionally available beers to try. Or, change it up from your favorite pours and consider a cider instead! Eden Specialty Ciders ice cider is a great way to sweeten up your Valentine’s dinner.
3. Maple SyrupVermont’s sweetest season is just around the corner. While visiting sugarhouses may look different this year, and some may not be able to visit at all, you can still sweeten up Feb. 14 with some delicious, locally produced Vermont maple syrup. Shop sugarmakers online, and throw in some maple candy, too.
Why not let a Vermont chef take dinner off your hands? Vermont’s restaurants are still here and still producing delicious, local and innovative meals. If you can’t visit your favorite Vermont spot right now, what about treating your other half to a gift card so you both can look forward to the Vermont treats you’ll get to enjoy? If you’re Vermont-based, check out Seven Days’ directory of over 1,400 food and drink businesses. The sweetest V-Day gift? Not having to cook.
