Vermont is known for many things, including world-famous ice cream, the purest maple syrup, and the fact that at one time it was home to more cows than people. The Green Mountain State is also loved for its many natural wonders, like its breathtaking scenery, pristine lakes, fascinating wildlife, and legendary quarries. There are many great places to get a closer look at these fascinating aspects of Vermont, such as the Birds of Vermont Museum and Rock of Ages Granite Quarry. The two destinations are a short and scenic drive from each other (approximately 45 minutes) and each offers a unique look at what makes this state so special.
