Welcome to Vermont. Set out to your greenest pastures on the Ethan Allen Express by way of the Rutland, Castleton and soon to be extended Essex Junction/Burlington stations; with Thruway Bus Service to popular destinations such as Manchester, Bennington and Middlebury. Hike gorgeous trails and mountainous landscapes at Equinox Mountain, on the Appalachian Trail or at White Rocks and Bald Mountain. A more relaxing view of the Green Mountains can be seen from Mountain View Ranch while horseback riding, or on Backroads Discovery Tours while you watch the mountains turn red, yellow and orange in the fall. Would you rather ascend or descend the Green Mountain State from a different route? You can go caving or rappel, rock climb, ice climb or paddle your way through beautiful scenery with Vermont Adventure Tours. Speaking of paddling, you can take on the water with kayaking, canoeing and tubing at Vermont River Runners. If you’re visiting during the winter, try skiing and snowboarding at Killington Ski Area and Pico Mountain Ski Resort.
The perfect destination for anyone with a sweet tooth, the state of Vermont is also home to the
Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory. You can eat Ben and Jerry’s ice cream to your heart’s content and take a tour of the factory. History is also prominent at the Bennington Battle Monument, a site of the Revolutionary War, and Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home.
