Covered bridges, rolling hills and soaring mountains, picture postcard villages, and historic country stores, Vermont is a wonderful year-round destination. We’re sharing our favorite Vermont stores to explore on your travels. Whether you visit in winter to enjoy some of the North East’s best skiing, when Vermont is under a blanket of snow and historic facades are decorated with lights like twinkling icicles. In the spring and summer there are plenty of farms and red barns to admire and plentiful farm stands to visit. The fall is a spectacular time as all the leaves change color.
