Things to do in Vermont
Tourism is a major industry, and the state offers no shortage of things to do in Vermont. Some of New England's largest ski resorts are located in Vermont, including Burke Mountain, Bolton Valley, Stratton, Smuggler's Notch, Killington Ski Resort, and many others. For the adventurous skier, Vermont offers a historic look at the Depression on its tour of the New Deal trails. The trail is a bit rough and is recommended for more advanced skiers only. In the warmer months, adventurous bikers can tackle Kingdom Trails for a great downhill adventure.
If you're wondering what to do in Vermont that is fun for the whole family, a trip to Billing Farm and Museum should be on your itinerary. The old farm house is located in Woodstock, and children, as well as adults, will be able to partake in some old fashioned farm chores—truly one of the more unique things to do in Vermont, but in keeping with its agrarian legacy. On your scenic drive, take note of the many covered bridges in Vermont. There are over 100 of these bridges throughout the state, the longest being the one Windsor-Cornish Covered Bridge. For the movie enthusiasts, visiting Rock of Ages in Barre. This industrial site is so otherworldly that it was used as the setting in the 2009 Star Trek movie.
Lastly, if you're in the state during the summer and wondering what to do in Vermont to cool off, pay a visit to Pump House Indoor Waterpark, which opened its doors in 2012 at Jay Peak Ski Resort. It features hot tubs to soak in, a wave pool and dozens of water slides.
