Food Scene
I have always loved the convenience of the Waybury Inn Restaurant. They have great food . I often do take-out, but it is a cozy little dining room for eating-in.

This is a secret dining spot because it is primarily a student cafe in the heart of Middlebury College. However, they have excellent food, much of which is sourced locally through the College's dining program. Fun atmosphere to eat-in, with pool tables and, sometimes, performances. It's in the Student Center, so if you can't find it, just ask for help. I usually go for dinner, but would also be good for lunch when school is in session.

This community focused organic pizzeria is a frozen pizza factory by day and booming eat-in restaurant by night. Warm, charming, easy, delicious, this is one of our personal favorites. Plan for a possible wait on busier nights.

Always surprises me to have such good Indian food in a rural Vermont town. I haven't had bad meal here and I have been many times over the years.

This special dining spot is worth the drive. Mary's prides itself on fine dining in rural Vermont. They take great care in upscale food preparation with the best local ingredients and serve it with care, unpretentiously. I love going here whenever I get the chance to make the drive.

If you feel like exploring Brandon, the next closest town center to the south, Cafe Provence is great excuse to do so. It's about a 20 minute drive and has a delicious French menu, created by the locally renowned Chef Robert.

This is a brand new place, but I have known the owner chef at different restaurants. He trained with Daniel Boulund in New York City. So I am excited to try this venture. Check it out and let me know! If nothing else, the restaurant has beautiful view of Otter Creek out its large picture windows.

Arts & Culture
There is so much great art taking place at the College that it is very limiting to file this category as "theatre" along. There are musical performances, dance recitals, art exhibitions - many of the above include wonderfully intimate pre or post show talks. I highly recommend checking the calendar to see if anything might be of interest. Here's the link: http://www.middlebury.edu/arts/news

Town Hall Theater is a secret gem of Middlebury. The caliber of their performances is above and beyond expectations for the town the size of Middlebury. I have seen excellent plays and operatic performances here. I highly recommend checking it out. Website: http://www.townhalltheater.org

This manageable ski mountain is very well maintained, as a Middlebury College owned property. It is SO conveniently located to the house, with competitive rates, that it should not be missed by anyone who likes to ski. Checkout the website: https://www.middleburysnowbowl.com

Shopping
Downtown Middlebury is not technically a shopping mall, but Main Street has all of the charm of an open air shopping mall. I recommend taking a stroll down the street and checking out all of the shops. It is one of my favorite places to go gift-shopping, as there are so many one-of-a-kind finds.

Sightseeing
What better way to enjoy the quintessential autumn Vermont experience than at a local apple orchard. You have the option to pick-your-own or select a pre-picked bushel. Sample apple cider made on the farm.
