Exploring Vermont | Central Vermont

Stuck in the middle, Central Vermont is sandwiched between Lake Champlain and the Connecticut River but it’s certainly not closed off. It’s in the middle of it all.
With the smallest city in the United States (Vergennes), the only state capital without a McDonald’s (Montpelier) and one of the prettiest stretches of road in the country (Route 100), Central Vermont is just about the heart of it all. Whether you’re in the Champlain Valley, smack in the Green Mountains or in the Connecticut River Valley you’re bound to find something new and different.

Exploring Vermont | Southern Vermont

From Rutland to Bennington to Brattleboro to White River Junction –– the four corners, so to speak –– Southern Vermont is dominated by mountains and rivers. Almost anywhere you turn there is a ski area: Killington, Pico, Ascutney, Stratton, Okemo, Bromley and Mt. Snow are the big ones.
Colleges like Castleton, Green Mountain, St. Joseph’s make the Rutland area youthful and vibrant. Brattleboro, Bennington, Manchester and Arlington were some of the first towns to be established in Vermont and help make Southern Vermont the state’s most historic region.

Exploring Vermont | Northern Vermont

Northern Vermont has everything –– big everything. There’s Burlington, the state’s biggest city, there’s Mount Mansfield, the state’s highest mountain, and there’s the bulk of Lake Champlain, more than 10 miles across at its widest stretch. The state’s biggest names in business are here: IBM, Fletcher Allen Hospital, Burton Snowboards and Ben & Jerry’s.
