At a Glance

Go beyond the tourist trail to uncover historic treasures of the Green Mountain State. Discover the appeal of small-town living while staying at two of the state’s most charming inns and exploring lesser-known historical institutions like the UVM Morgan Horse Farm, Champlain Orchards and the Sheldon Museum, the nation’s oldest community-based museum. Study local government at the nation’s smallest capital, the Vermont State House, before unwinding at the beautiful Shelburne Vineyards with a private lecture and tasting. Experience the closeness of these tight-knit communities while venturing to the Waybury Inn, the set of the Bob Newhart Show, and spending two nights at the historic Green Mountain Inn. Delve into the countryside culture as you discover a new side of Vermont that few seldom see.
