  • Cold Hollow Cider Mill

    The Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury Center makes some very good apple cider, and you can watch them make it. They have free samples and also some really great donuts:) I ate way too many of those....

  • Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream

    We visited Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory in Waterbury Center, about 5 minutes from where we stayed. This is the original factory, they have since added one in another part of Vermont.

While the Famed Green Mountains are clearly white in winter and covered in snow, the White Mountains are most definitely green in spring and...

  • This is Vermont

    Locals generally want to be let be. They're friendly enough, just loners.A wise vermonter being asked by a passerby "Have you lived here all your life?" replies "Not yet." They are also known for a quick wit. Best advice I can give you is live and let live around Vermont. If you've seen Funny Farm with Chevy Chase, well....that says it.

  • There seem to be two types of...

    There seem to be two types of Vermonters - liberals {i.e. Vt. passed civil unions legislation last year},and taciturn folks who like their state just fine the way it is, and don't take kindly to change, thank you very much!
