New England has several claims to fame, but there is only one Green Mountain state, and that is Vermont. The word Vermont came from Verd Mont, or Green Mount by the Reverend Dr. Peters. No matter what you want to see in Vermont, taking a charter bus will save you on stress, time, and quite possibly cash.
So where should you start when planning your Vermont travels? According to See Vermont, the state is divided into four main areas: Southern Vermont, Central Vermont, Northern Vermont, and the Northeast Kingdom, and you can use a charter bus to see them all. Southern Vermont is home to the precious town of Brattleboro. This cozy town offers coffeehouses and bookstores and is home to the oldest health food store in America, as cited by See Vermont. Brattleboro also borders the Connecticut River, which you can appreciate by taking a river tour and visiting the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center. In addition to Brattleboro, this part of the state is home to the Bennington Museum, Bennington Battle Monument, the Southern Vermont Art Center, the Hildene, which is an estate that includes both mansion and land, as well as the American Museum of Fly Fishing.
Moving up to Central Vermont means taking your time up the Connecticut River. On this trip, you can visit Mt. Aschutney State Park. Central Vermont is also home to Quechee Gorge, known as the "Grand Canyon of the East.” This area offers hiking, restaurants, inns, and a balloon festival. Killington Ski Resort also calls Central Vermont home. If you enjoy hiking, consider a trip to Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest point. Here you can hike along the notorious Long Trail. Then, after a good hike, treat yourself from tasty ice cream from the Ben & Jerry's ice cream plant or the Cabot Creamery Annex. For the historical buffs, you must visit Vermont Historical Society in Vermont's state capital, Montpelier. A charter bus service can lead you all through Central Vermont.
Northern Vermont also offers sites to see and entertainments to enjoy for the New England Traveler. Northern Vermont is home to one of the states most popular cities: Burlington. See Vermont states that Burlington has been hailed as one of America's best cities to live in. Burlington offers several attractions to visit including the Church Street Marketplace, which offers store after store and tons of cafes and restaurants. In this area, you can also enjoy Lake Chaplain or board the famous Sprit of Ethan Allen for a scenic tour. Burlington isn't Northern Vermont's only claim to fame however. There is also Shelburne, and the islands of South Hero, North Hero and Isle La Motte.
Finally, one can explore Vermont's Northern Kingdom. The Northern Kingdom is a haven for the outdoor lover. You can ski at Burke Mountain Ski Area or Jay Peak Ski. Is fishing more your thing? No sweat. You can enjoy fishing, hiking, and biking at Lake Willoughby. And these are just a few of the things that the Northern Kingdom has to offer.
One of the most popular things to see in New England is the breathtaking foliage that lights the hills and mountains on fire in the fall. According to Vermont Only, Vermont is the best place to come see the beautiful New England autumn leaves. Vermont Only, which produces yearly Vermont Foliage Reports, claims that Vermont has the perfect conditions from the right topography to the perfect soil moisture level to always produce vibrant colored leaves from gold to deep red. While weather conditions do vary the time of peak color, magnificent, bold colors can be seen waving in the air of Vermont from mid-September to the third week in October.
