Real Vermonters know that life's too short to have fake maple syrup...even if you live to be 105! So if you really want to get a taste of the sweet life, visit two of the best places in Vermont to get syrup and all things maple. We're not just being sappy. These farms are really special. And they're just a little over an hour from each other so they make up a pretty sweet day tour or part of an extended stay.
