 Hello November!


As the amount of daylight continues to shorten with each day and the honking of Canadian geese, flying in “V" formation, is commonplace, mother nature begins her preparation for winter ahead.  November in Vermont can be a little bittersweet as shorter days mean less time for outdoor projects and outdoor recreation but Vermonter's never tire of our year-round beauty.

We New Englanders – particularly Vermonters – are used to sharing our glorious seasons with thousands of visitors from around the world.  

There are many ways to enjoy the beauty of this state: hike a peaceful trail, take a scenic drive along our picturesque back roads, visit our quaint towns and chat with our villagers.  Possibly you may wish to enjoy a train ride on the Green Mountain Flyer.  This train-ride offers regular trips along the scenic Connecticut River, where trees are reflected in the peaceful water.

Whatever your preferences may be and no matter which road you travel, you will witness year-round spectacular scenery!
