World's Prettiest Mountain Towns
Situated among New England's Green Mountains, Stowe’s downtown area, first settled 200 years ago, is filled with delightfully quaint historic buildings and covered bridges; a soaring church spire, belonging to the Stowe Community Church, built in 1863, overlooks it all.
Get some mountain air: Stowe is home to Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak, and the extremely challenging double-black diamond “Front Four” trails. (There are plenty of intermediate and beginner runs, too.) From the top of Mount Mansfield, hikers and skiers are treated to seemingly endless panoramas of Lake Champlain and the surrounding peaks of the Green Mountains.
