Vermont: The land of maple syrup, skiing, golf

The land of maple syrup, dairy, and liberal politics is clearly so much more. The placid scenery as the backdrop for sports, fine dining, and sun basking truly makes Vermont the perfect getaway, not the mention the most notable skiing on the East Coast come winter.

Ludlow, Vermont is best known as a skiing destination, but there are dozens of things to do throughout the year. The town is just a short drive from Waterbury, where the first Ben and Jerry’s store still stands. Mt. Tabor gives you access to outlet shops, the Appalachian trail and history museums. Whether you visit when it’s warm or cold, you still have access to many things to do in the area.

If you prefer hiking and plan on visiting Ludlow in the warmer months, you’ll be happy since there are several hiking trails in the town. One of the best is the Bald Mountain hiking trail; it begins in nearby Brattleboro. The trail covers over 18 miles

If you plan on skiing during the winter months, visit the Jackson Gore Ski Area. The Jackson Gore Inn is located right at the bottom of the trails; this gives you the option of staying as close to the runs as possible. The trails are suited for beginner and intermediate skiers because the trails are easier to handle and smoother than some of the more advanced ones on the mountain.

The 18-hole golf course at the Okemo Valley Golf Club is used on several championship tours, and golfers from all across the country play there every year.
