Situated in the northeast corner of New England you will find Vermont, the region`s only state without an Atlantic coastline, but the lush Green Mountains more than make up for this lack of ocean playground. Each year, crowds flock to the celebrated slopes of Killington, Mt Snow and Stowe for the finest skiing and snowboarding on the East Coast.

These same mountains help form the Long Trail, a hiking path that courses the length of the state and lures countless repeat visitors – especially during the autumn months, when the state erupts in a blaze of spectacular foliage. Much of Vermont is serene farmland, yielding up the state`s famous maple syrups and cheeses as well as the fresh produce that make it home to some of the nation`s finest restaurants.

The warm and friendly people that work in the states fine hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes are sure to make your stay a memorable one but above all Vermont is home to the eccentric and unexpected. From a puppet museum lurking in a massive barn and an old mill converted into a first-class restaurant; to llamas grazing in the backyard of a rural bed-and-breakfast in the only state capital without a McDonald`s.
