In Vermont we call soft service ice cream creemies. I think they have one of the best creemies in VT, but I'm only slightly biased by the short commute. Open seasonally.

The Bobcat is a great gastro pub, in fact it is where we had our first date, with locally sourced ingredients and has, in our opinion, the best burger and fries in VT. They also brew their own beer.

Mary’s is a bit more pricey but also serves farm-to-table cuisine, including produce grown right there. Their signature cream of garlic soup is to die for!

This used to be owned by the same French chef who founded the Bobcat Cafe. The meal options are often pretty heavy (read lots of butter) but it's delicious. We will venture there for special occasions as it's a bit pricier than the Bobcat.

The views on the summit look to Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains. If you head south from the parking area (the opposite direction from Mt.

Snake Mountain is one of Vermont's best peaks, thanks to standing alone high above the Champlain Valley. You'll get plenty of reward for a modest day's work in the form of exceptional western views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. views. It's about 5 miles round trip and on weekends can be a heavily trafficked trail.

From the parking lot, the trail leads into the woods and climbs moderately to a bridge at 0.2 miles. The trail continues beside a stream to a second stream crossing that has no bridge, but can be crossed on rocks. Ascending steadily after the second stream crossing, the trial climbs to a third stream crossing after which the terrain is gentler. The trail arrives at the outlet of Abbey Pond at 2.1 miles. Abbey Pond supports a community of marsh plants and animals. This trail is sometimes closed to protect nesting great blue herons. Watch for closure posters. Average hike time: 2 - 2.5 hours round trip.
