There are so many great events and attractions; it can be hard to decide just what to do. That's where we come in. We can help you plan your trip from where to stay and what activities suit your lifestyle.
When people think of Vermont, they may think about small, historic villages with white clapboard buildings surrounded by scenic rural landscape. But make no mistake, you'll also find plenty of water in Vermont. Vermont's waterways are some of the most classic, timeless and incredibly fun places to spend time outside. Vermont is home to thousands of fresh-water lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. Which helps make our waters such a desired destination for everything from swimming to fishing to boating and picnicking. In the Valley, the Molly Stark Byway follows Harriman Reservoir (also known as Lake Whitingham) for more than a mile. Harriman Reservoir is over 8 miles long and features 28 miles of winding coastline. The shores of this scenic gem remain undeveloped and unbroken; wildlife sightings include the American Bald Eagle and Common Loon. Harriman Reservoir is the largest body of water entirely within Vermont's borders.
Vermont has more than 700 miles of hiking trails, an increasing number of park-like recreation paths, and hundreds of miles of back roads and country lanes that provide delightful walking routes.
Southern Vermont has some of the best, and most surprising, antiquing in the nation. Within an hour radius of the Mount Snow Valley are dozens of large and small antique stores, trade fairs, auction houses, barns and garages. Come stay in one of our Bed and Breakfasts, inns, or hotels for a real pickers dream weekend!
The communities here offer an endless variety of theaters, festivals, historic sites, museums, artist studios and farms. Including villages and towns where the streets are lined with locally-owned shops, galleries, and chef-owned restaurants. Two of our upcoming festivals are the Vermont Life Wine and Harvest Festival and the Blueberry Festival.
Speaking of Vermont's beautiful landscapes, why not take a scenic motorcycle ride. Vermont has some of the best riding in the north east. Many Inns and restaurants are "biker friendly".
The Mount Snow Valley offers superb outdoor activities year round. Vermont Camping and hiking are great ways to explore the state, and the Southern Vermont location of our valley makes getting hear all the easier. Now we wish you luck in exploring all our valley has to offer in under a week! Other popular summer activities in Vermont are mountain biking and road biking. Perhaps spending the day on any one of our three lakes is more your speed. From sailboat rentals, kayaking, canoeing we will be sure to float your boat. If you like what swims in the water more than the water itself, rest assured we have some of the best fly fishing and lake fishing in Vermont.
