• Things to Do

    Strap on your skis‚ lace up your hiking boots‚ or view the latest art exhibit. Hop on your bike‚ dip your toes in a gurgling mountain stream‚ taste fresh veggies and introduce yourself to the farmer who grew them. Read the works of Robert Frost‚ Vermont's poet laureate‚ and walk amongst the trees he planted and wrote about. Sample some locally produced adult beverages. Take a drive through Addison County‚ its covered bridges and enjoy foliage at its best.
