Leave the iPads at home and hightail it to this family-friendly escape in Vermont
for a dose of simple living. Campers learn about sustainable farm life by helping with barn chores—your brood will adore visiting with the resident cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens and ducks. Plus, letting the kids pull their own vegetables for dinner from the organic garden, or baking pies using apples from the orchard, really drives home the idea of farm-to-table eating. Woodward Reservoir is a prime spot for swimming and canoeing, and the surrounding woods are flush with trails for hiking. Embrace the camping lifestyle by sleeping in open cabins with no electricity or hot water. Nighttime entertainment is of the unplugged variety (crafts, music and storytelling), but you might be surprised how much the kids come to enjoy it. All ages.
