Stowe — 2 nights

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.
Get in touch with nature at Stowe Mountain Resort and Gentle Giants Sleigh and Carriage Rides. Step out of Stowe with an excursion to Shelburne Museum in Shelburne--about 54 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Mansfield State Forest, hit the slopes at Spruce Peak at Stowe, trek along Stowe Recreation Path, and surround yourself with nature on Peace Pups Dog Sledding.

Plan my day in Stowe using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Houston to Stowe is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Houston to Stowe due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Houston in December, things will get cooler in Stowe: highs are around 33°F and lows about 17°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel to Ludlow.

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.
