1Near Stowe, Vermont

Three-quarters of Vermont is covered in forest and, with a high concentration of maple, birch and beech trees, you can expect dazzling displays of colour for a fall weekend getaway.

Check out Stowe Cider for a sip of something after spending the day strolling the town’s streets or the mountain paths. And less than ten miles down the road is the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory, an essential Vermont experience.
