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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at D.A.R. State Park and Shelburne Bay Park. Do your shopping at Church Street Marketplace and Stowe Mercantile. Venture out of the city with trips to 1st Republic Brewing Company (in Essex), Vintage Photography Emporium (in Burlington) and Magic Hat Brewing Company (in South Burlington). There's lots more to do: trek along Stowe Recreation Path, see the interesting displays at Shelburne Museum, sample the fine beverages at Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits, and kick back and relax at White's Beach.
