5 States 5 Weekends: Part 3

After going up to Rhode Island and Maine in the last 2 weekends it was time to go a little further so I went north to Vermont with some friends and stayed the night up there. Vermont is known as the Green Mountain state and is even named for Les Monts Verts (the French for Green Mountains). It’s also the prettiest New England state in my humble opinion.

We stayed in Burlington and went to the Ben and Jerry’s factory (it’d be rude not to), Citizen’s Cider, Lake Champlain Chocolates and we also watched a beautiful sunset over Lake Champlain. This was only my second visit to Vermont but I love the beautiful mountains and the laid back hippy vibe of the locals and I’ll definitely be back.

The highlight of the weekend was definitely the sunset over Lake Champlain but we also went to the house of Ethan Allen (a Revolutionary War person) and saw a well full of snakes that was like something out of Indiana Jones. The guide was like “I should warn people about that”. You’re not wrong, friend. I hope you like the photos from my trip!

A Weekend in Vermont

I’m back!

Like gold medal good. But I’m back and you’re stuck with me (unless I don’t get round to posting for another two months). Continue reading “A Weekend in Vermont”
