Vermont Foodie Experiences
From gourmet meals and pure maple syrup to artisan cheeses and ice cream factory tours, you will never run out of ideas for things to do in Vermont. Here are just a few of my favorites.
Shore Acres Inn & Restaurant
Enjoy a gourmet meal in a picturesque Vermont inn, located on the shore of Lake Champlain. Relax after your meal with a bike ride along the Lake Champlain Bikeways Network. Or, take a hike along one of the hiking trails and enjoy the quiet.
This will be a gorgeous spot once the leaves start to change color this fall.

Make your way to the Franklin County Covered Bridges in Saint Albans where you can explore some of Vermont's 40 covered bridges on a self-guided driving tour. And, don't miss a stop for ice cream after your tour.
