With more than seventy-five per cent of its terrain covered by forests, Vermont is a state with wonderful scenery, in particular its autumn foliage. Its State parks with their mountains and forests offer endless opportunities for cycling, hiking, fishing, and in winter, skiing and snowboarding. If you are not the sporty type, Vermont has interesting historic sites as well.
A holiday in Vermont doesn't have to cost the earth if you opt for self-catering accommodation. This might be a spacious apartment in town or a cosy cabin in the forest. With a fully equipped kitchen, you will be able to cook your own meals rather than be obliged to eat in restaurants every single day. You and your family will be able to relax and organise your time to suit your particular requirements.
Lake Champlain is the largest of Vermont's many lakes where you can enjoy ferry tours, golf, water sports, hunting and rock climbing. Wildlife abounds there, so you might catch sight of foxes, eagles, deer or bears. Be sure to visit Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, an area of waters and wetlands where many migratory birds can be seen including mallards, snow geese and black ducks. When you've had your fill of wildlife, why not take a look at the quilts and furniture at Shelburne Museum? If science is more your cup of tea, don't miss the exhibits at Montshire Museum.
Vermont holiday rentals for families
For families with children who love outdoor activities, there is a seemingly endless choice in Vermont. Why not head for Bromley, where there is a giant swing, a zip line, bumper boats and alpine and water slides? Then there is Stowe, with trampolines, an obstacle course, a climbing wall and a Gondola Skyride. Burlington offers shipwreck tours, horse or llama riding and sleigh rides at the Trapp Family Lodge. For a change, you can pick fruit, pumpkins or even a Christmas tree at one of Vermont's many farms, or perhaps get lost in a corn maze! If there is a rainy day, tour Ben and Jerry's ice-cream factory in Waterbury or the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory in Shelburne. In summer, there's also Lake Champlain's hands-on Maritime Museum with its shipwreck tours and replicas of sailing ships.
