Wilmington Vermont is located in Windham County, on scenic Route 100 in the "Southern Vermont" region of the state. The village of Wilmington is a "shoppers mecca" with unique specialty shops, restaurants, and art galleries in beautifully constructed historic buildings, and the area's mountains provide scenic vistas.
Winter activities in the area include skiing and snowboarding, tubing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Located about 15 miles south of Mount Snow Resort in West Dover, Wilmington is home to Haystack Mountain, purchased in 2005 by a group of local businessmen who opened an upscale private ski area.
The warmer months are a great time to visit Lake Whitingham, said to be the largest lake entirely within the state of Vermont, which has public access for boating, picnicking, and swimming. Hiking and golfing are also very popular during the summer and fall with several golf courses just minutes away. Route 9, also known as the "Molly Stark Trail," runs through Wilmington and is a beautiful drive during the fall foliage season.
