Vermont travelers choose from 5 Best Western hotels.
Explore the best of New England in Vermont. Dubbed the Green Mountain State, Vermont boasts a wide range of gratifying summer attractions, and sights – from sailing the Lake Champlain waters, to the many biking trails in Green Mountain National Forest.
Traveling families visit the capital Montpelier for a tour of the Vermont History Museum. Others, check out the Vermont State House, home of the Vermont General Assembly – and take the tour to see local government in action. Before you depart from Montpelier, be sure to explore the Hubbard Park and Tower – 194 acres of incredible park land great for family picnics and climbing the 54-foot observation tower for awe-inspiring views.
Continue your summer exploration of Vermont with a trip to Bennington. Check out the Bennington Battle Monument, the tallest structure in the state, or visit the North River Winery for a taste of the local reds, and the chilled white wines – a perfect compliment to a summer lunch. Any visit to Bennington should also yield time at the Bennington Museum and the Bennington Center for the Arts.
Waterbury is another town you'll pass on your exploration of Vermont. Set minutes southeast of South Burlington, Waterbury is home to the Rock of Ages Quarry. Better yet, enjoy a summer treat with a tour of the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory.
