Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): fly down the slopes at Stratton Mountain Resort, take in the awesome beauty at Bromley Mountain, and then stop by Northshire Bookstore. Here are some ideas for day two: fly down the slopes at Okemo Mountain Resort, hit the slopes at Killington Resort, and then tee off at Green Mountain National Golf Course.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel to Stowe.

Stowe

The Ski Capital of the East

Stowe bustles in winter when skiers and snowboarders flock here to challenge themselves on the long, steep trails careening down Vermont's tallest peak, Mt.
Bring the kids along to Shelburne Museum and Church Street Marketplace. Change things up with these side-trips from Stowe: Burlington Bike Path (in Burlington) and Smugglers' Notch Resort (in Jeffersonville). There's much more to do: kick your exploration up a notch at ArborTrek Canopy Adventures, fly down the slopes at Stowe Mountain Resort, get a taste of the local shopping with Remarkable Things at Stowe Craft, and trek along Stowe Recreation Path.

To see reviews, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, use the Stowe trip builder tool.

You can drive from Ludlow to Stowe in 2 hours. In December, plan for daily highs up to 33°F, and evening lows to 17°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) so you can go by car back home.

The Green Mountain State
Known for its autumn foliage and maple syrup, Vermont is one of the country's smallest states in terms of both population and geographic area. Despite its small size and mostly rural character, the state boasts many picturesque places to visit, including Lake Champlain, one of the nation's largest freshwater bodies. Split in half by the Green Mountains--a popular holiday destination for hiking and skiing--Vermont features a rolling landscape dotted with farms and quaint towns known for their family-run inns, antique shops, and restaurants. Be sure to explore the state's many wild areas while on vacation, but beware of the so-called "mud season," a period of a few weeks when the state's unpaved roads become undrivable due to spring thaw.
