Tourism in Vermont, as Well as Its Seven Natural Wonders.

Tourism in Vermont, as Well as Its Seven Natural Wonders.

Regardless of the time of year that you visit Vermont, you will witness these seven natural marvels and fall in love with the Green Mountain state. And, just in case you were under the impression that there were just seven marvels, think again. Each of them is a holiday in and of itself, filled with the joys of adventure, magnificent vistas, wildlife, great food, and luxurious accommodations and facilities.

It all starts right here...

THE NATIONAL FOREST OF THE GREEN MOUNTAIN

The Green Mountain National Forest encompasses 400,000 acres and stretches over two-thirds of the length of Vermont's northern border. Located in the backcountry, the forest has six wilderness areas with campsites and 900 miles of trails, as well as a remote environment suitable for people of all ages. During the summer months, campgrounds are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Robert Frost Trail near Ripton, the Texas Falls Recreation area near Hancock, the Moosalamoo region near Brandon, and Lake Dunmore and Brandbury State Park are also popular locations in the Forest. For additional information, see the Forest website.

QUECHEE GORGE QUECHEE GORGE

The Quechee Gorge, located in central Vermont near the town of Woodstock, is a geological wonder of the world. The canyon, which has been dubbed "Vermont's Grand Canyon," was formed when the last glacier that covered New England retreated about 12,000 years ago. In modern times, the Ottauguechee River runs through the canyon and is crossed by a bridge, which provides tourists with a breathtakingly beautiful and picturesque vantage point.

The park's entrance is located just west of the bridge and has paths that go down to the gorge as well as forested nature walks.

FROM KILLINGTON TO WATERBURY, TAKE SCENIC ROUTE 100.

Many beautiful roads exist in Vermont, but none is more magnificent than the section of Route 100 that runs from Killington to Waitsfield in the state's northeastern corner. In addition to passing through mountain valleys, rivers, streams, waterfalls, and tiny agricultural communities on its way to the Green Mountain National Forest, the route also passes through other national forests. Over the course of this journey, you will pass through wide countryside, high mountain cliffs on each side of a twisting, narrow road, and then back into open fields again.

It is during the latter portion of the trip to Waterbury that you will be treated to spectacular vistas of the far northern Green Mountains.

STOWE

Stowe, Vermont, is arguably the most beautiful town in all of New England, nestled between two mountain ranges. Mount Mansfield is the primary attraction for many visitors to Stowe, and the peak dominates the surrounding area.

Swimming, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, and scenic driving tours are just a few of the activities available to families on their Vermont holidays after the snow melts. Other activities include skiing, snowboarding, and skiing in the winter. For those who are strong and active, Mount Mansfield itself offers hiking paths, or you may enjoy breathtaking views from the comfort of your own vehicle as you go to the top of the ridge on the old toll road.

THE LAKE AND THE ISLANDS OF LAKE CHAMPLAIN

Lake Champlain seems to be a long-lost relative of the Great Lakes. Vermont's northern region is studded with a beautiful line of islands, which are popular destinations for Vermont vacations. The state is long and deep, but its average width is just 12 miles. VT Routes 2 and 78 link the major communities with one another and with the rest of Vermont. In addition to offering spectacular views of Vermont's Green Mountains to the east and New York's Adirondack Mountains to the west, the Lake Champlain Islands are considered one of New England's remaining "undiscovered" gems.

KINGDOM OF THE NORTHEAST

The Northeast Kingdom has a huge 1.3 million acres of mostly wilderness area, which contains public forests, parks, lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams, as well as a variety of other recreational opportunities. This is a region that has altered little since the glaciers departed, and those who are brave will find lots of opportunities to live out their Vermont holiday fantasies here.

Nature coexists with humans in the Northeast Kingdom, and this is a place where animals and the landscape reign supreme, and people are content to take a backseat to their surroundings. Load up your camping gear and supplies in St. Johnsbury, check your petrol tank, and prepare yourself for an exciting adventure!

BRIDGES WITH COVERINGS

The most impressive collection of covered bridges in the United States must be included in any discussion of Vermont's marvels. Include the bridges shared with New Hampshire and crossing the Connecticut River, and the state has 106 bridges in total, more than any other New England state save Rhode Island. The majority of bridges are open to the public and in good shape, making them a delight to find and photograph.

The artisans who created these monuments had no clue that they were creating a legacy that would be appreciated by tourists from all around the globe for generations to come. There is a Vermont covered bridge within driving distance of almost everywhere in the state.

We've just touched the surface of a region in the United States where not only the people, but even nature, do things a bit differently-and that makes all the difference when it comes to Vermont holidays.
