Vermont Destinations

Welcome to Vermont — Green Mountain State

The forests, lush valleys, and green mountains define the natural landscape that is Vermont. Even in the winter, Mount Mansfield (the state’s highest point) is popular with skiers. In autumn, trees explode with colors and make road tripping a major attraction. Mount Equinox Skyline Drive, at 5.2 miles long, reaches up to 3,235 and is one of the most popular attractions in the fall. The 295,000-acre Green Mountain National Forest covers much of the Green Mountains and includes part of the Long Trail. This trail system has a 272-mile foot path, and 166 miles of side trails. In addition to forests, Lake Champlain forms the western border. Discover Vermont destinations this summer one step at a time.
