Welcome to Vermont, a small New England state on the border with Canada, and be prepared for an amazing experience. The state is devoid of sprawling cities and there are no McDonalds in its capital Montpelier. Instead, you will be greeted by a peaceful, rural region, incredibly green in summer, stunningly red in the fall and an enthusiastic champion of sustainable development by its inimitable lifestyle.
As you motor round miles and miles of country roads, lined by fast-flowing rivers and spanned by emblematic covered wooden bridges, you will go through thousands of acres of maple forest. Go for a cruise on the wonderful Lake Champlain, an excursion through the historic villages of Northeast Kingdom, or sample a breathtaking view of the region from the top of Jay Peak: such are just a few of the many delights that await you in Vermont.
