The 12 best things to do in Vermont

Vermont is known for its forested natural beauty, majestic green mountains, scenic hiking trails, and destination-worthy skiing. The state is also famous for its picturesque wooden covered bridges, of which there are more than 100. The natural beauty of Vermont’s landscape has fostered a dedication to conservation among its 600,000-plus residents. (It’s the second-least populated state in the nation.) You’ll find many small farms, local artisans, and a wealth of products grown with environmentally-friendly standards: beer, cheese, maple syrup, veggies … all lovingly crafted by locally-minded Vermonters. It’s a place where you can explore history, enjoy nature, and get close to the locals through shopping and dining. Done something on this list and loved it?
