Brandon, VT is a little gem midway between Rutland and Middlebury, larger and more congested urban areas that complement Brandon’s more rural and relaxed nature. The town is unique in 21st century America in that its downtown is compact and walkable and hosts the necessary services that provide quality-of-life. It is a historic town, with 246 buildings on the National Register, best represented by the iconic Greek-columned Brandon Town Hall and the amazing homes on Park Street, fondly referred to as the most beautiful street in Vermont. If more active recreation is what you are looking for, it is found in Brandon. Brandon is a key gateway to the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, a four-season Mecca for outdoors enthusiasts, from quiet bird-watching to exhilarating mountain biking, in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. Whether you are using Brandon as a jumping-off point, we are centrally located, or spending a few days relaxing, there are historic and charming inns and quiet B & B’s that provide a range of lodging options. And from those locations, one can stroll downtown for an award-winning dinner, a fun lunch or a delicious home-cooked meal. Or sample the vibrant arts community offerings that have developed over the last decade. The arts community is so vibrant that Brandon has become known as the “art and soul of Vermont.” A favorite venue for Plein air artists is found in Kennedy Park overlooking the upper falls of the Neshobe River.

Nestled in Vermont's Green Mountains, Rutland rests in a wide valley between two mountain ranges, in a natural north-south passage. To the east three large peaks in the Green Mountain range- Killington, Pico, and Shrewsbury flank Rutland. To the west of Rutland are the Taconics. Take advantage of our nearby mountains and lakes and join the thousands of tourists who visit our region to ski, hike, swim and enjoy the autumn foliage. As Vermont's second-largest city, rich in natural beauty, melded with a healthy economy and a wonderful history, Rutland is hailed as an eclectic mix of the old and new. We are enjoying great popularity among shoppers, diners, and others who have discovered Downtown Rutland.

Vermont's largest and perhaps most cosmopolitan city, Burlington beckons with the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture, and nature. Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, Burlington is one of those places you can't help but fall in love with. During the spring and summer, the streets come alive with festivals and outdoor concerts. The picnic benches, playground and bike paths of Leddy Park are filled with warm weather revelers, and opportunities to swim, fish or just kick back on the beach abound. In the fall, the Burlington Bike Path is bustling with leaf peepers who come to view the vibrant autumn colors. In winter, lace up your ice skates and head to the Paquette Arena or grab your skis and head to any of the nearby resorts. Church Street Marketplace, with its early 1900s architecture, great restaurants, live entertainment, one-of-a-kind shops, and well-known stores, is the focal point of the downtown area. Any time of the year is a good time for chocolate. Be sure to stop by Lake Champlain Chocolates for a tour and taste.

When you hear Woodstock, your first thought is probably of the famous music festival. You’d be wrong: the wrong state. Vermont’s Woodstock is far, far from a rock festival. It’s a sleepy village that has been described as quaint meets charming. This picture-postcard village is considered one of the prettiest small towns in America and has the plaque to prove it. It’s a place to drive over a picturesque red covered bridge, visit a sugar maple farm, breathe in the crisp air as you hike in the surrounding mountains, and shop at unique boutiques and galleries.

Shelburne is a quiet town seven miles south of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city. Founded in 1763, it was named for William Petty, earl of Shelburne and British prime minister. It has deep roots in farming, and several farms, including vineyards, are open to the public. Its most visited attraction, however, just maybe one devoted to making your kids happy. Open for tours, the Vermont Teddy Bear Co. has been making cute, cuddly teddy bears since 1981, and is one of Vermont’s more popular attractions. If you like water better, Shelburne is located on Lake Champlain.

Grafton, considered one of New England’s prettiest towns, got its name in a unique way. Originally known as Thomlinson, the right to rename it garnered $5 and some rum in an action; the winning bidder named it after his home town of Grafton, Massachusetts. Homes and buildings have been restored to their historic grandeur, so Grafton looks pretty much like It might have a century or two ago. Be sure to check out the Grafton Inn, which has been operating as a hotel since 1801. Standing guard over the village is the iconic White Church that was built in 1858.
