Before we get into the spirit of Christmas here on the blog, let’s take a virtual road trip to enjoy the blissful fall colors in Vermont. From rural roads to small and large towns, there’s so much to see and enjoy in the Green Mountain State, even though right now the mountains display a range of riotous colors.
You’ve probably seen photos of this community church in Stowe, Vermont. The scene is idyllic and beautiful and makes you want to plan your next vacation here. Stowe is nicknamed the Ski Capital of the East, but any time of year is a great time to visit.
Other towns have their own steepled white churches, which pop against the blissful fall colors in the background. These are the types of places I like to explore. They’re off the beaten path and are filled with charm and history.
In addition to the country roads and rural towns, the larger town of Burlington shouldn’t be ignored.
Located just 45 miles south of the Canadian border, Burlington is the largest town in Vermont with a population of approximately 45,000. It’s a college town – I’m always a fan of visiting college towns like Madison, Wisconsin. They always seem to have good energy and plenty of restaurants. Not to mention, neighborhoods surrounding a college or university tend to be well-groomed and attractive.
And here’s a skyline photo of Burlington with its blissful fall colors on full display.
This pretty brick home is located in Woodstock, Vermont and has flower boxes filled with colorful mums. I’ve got baskets of mums on my front porch and back deck, but the blooms are just now starting to fade.
Is anyone else a fan of country barns? Especially red ones!
Vermont has its share of nostalgic covered bridges. I recently wrote about the covered bridges in Indiana, although most of them are red or white.
There’s so much history in the Eastern states, especially the New England area. I think next fall’s vacation might need to be a trip to this beautiful part of the country with its historic homes and buildings.
The country roads in Vermont will lead you to charming, magical places!
I hope you enjoyed this virtual road trip to Vermont to enjoy its blissful fall colors. If you’ve been to the Green Mountain State recently, let me know what you most enjoyed. It will help me plan a trip there!
