Vermont, also known as the Green Mountain State, while small in size and population, consistently ranks as one of the top places to live, work, and vacation. Visitors can find a range of places to stay in Vermont, from upscale Burlington hotels, to quaint bed and breakfasts and Vermont inns, to budget friendly motels. Vermont’s natural beauty, wide range of venues, and short distance to Boston, New York, and Montreal, make Vermont weddings ideal.

Spring and Summer provide ample opportunities for outdoor fun in Vermont. You can enjoy hiking, biking, camping, tennis, fishing, and much more. Vermont resorts are a great place for family vacations and many have Vermont golf courses on-site or access to nearby courses. Lake Champlain is just one of many Vermont lakes, rivers, and streams with some of the best spots for fishing, swimming, kayaking & canoeing, boating or just tubing downstream. Vermont's summer theatre programs, festivals like the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival (June 5-14, 2015), fairs, concerts, museums, and galleries, are just a few of the many things to do in Vermont on a beautiful summer day.

Vermont has a strong “locavore” culture and many VT restaurants embrace the "farm-to-table" movement. Vermont maple syrup, artisanal cheeses, and fresh produce are even better accompanied by Vermont wine or craft beer made in Vermont. Farm stands and famers’ markets are also great sources for the abundant Vermont produce available. Don’t forget to stop for a creamee!
