Stowe

— 3 nights

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.
St. Johnsbury Athenaeum and Shelburne Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Jay Peak Resort and Remarkable Things at Stowe Craft. Venture out of the city with trips to Eden Dogsledding (in Eden Mills), Spa at the Essex (in Essex) and Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits (in Cambridge). There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Stowe Mountain Resort and sample the tasty concoctions at The Alchemist.

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.
