Never one to be clearly defined, predictable, or pigeon holed, the State of Vermont is definitely one of a kind while offering such a variety! From maple sugar houses and apple orchards to charming towns and historical monuments, we have so much to be proud but really hate to brag. In fact, two of our sweet spots don't really need any touting as they tend to speak for themselves. Ben & Jerry's is celebrated as being "Vermont's Finest," while Vermont Teddy Bears are famous for giving out the best hugs in the Universe. If you want proof, see for yourself with a great day tour to these two sweet spots, just about 40 minutes apart on an equally sweet scenic drive.
