Spring is Maple-Syrup Season in VermontDepending on the region, the maple season can start as early as February and last as late as April for Vermont vacations. However, March is the best time to get an up-close look at how the old-timers make authentic maple syrup. You'll never have to guess if you've arrived at the right time; the steam from the sugar-houses tells everyone that it's maple-syrup season. After you take a tour, pick up a few bottles to take home for yourself and your friends.
Summer Brings Equestrian Excitement to VermontIf anyone in your family is a horse-lover, a summer visit provides plenty of things to do in Vermont. For six weeks during June and July, the Green Mountain region is filled with a variety of horse shows. Whether you choose to attend the Manchester Summer Festival Horse Show , the Valley Classic Horse Show , or one of the other events, remember to get there early if you're bringing your own animal. The stalls are limited and provided on a first come, first serve basis.
Although your horse will be right at home in the stables, you'll enjoy staying in a nearby vacation rental home. In addition to providing a peaceful retreat from the shows, this plan can also place you in the middle of a quaint New England town or provide a secluded log cabin to make you feel like you've left the hectic, modern world far behind. Either choice means that you and your family will get to know Vermont like a local.
