My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Postby ctyanky » Thu Feb 08, 2018 7:04 pm

Hello everyone! Just finished hours of scraping ice off the walks, car and driveway from our mega ice storm yesterday! I've now settled down, nice and cozy but exhausted (this winter UGH :evil: ), and thinking as always of the planning stages of my next Vermont adventure! There is sooooo much to do and see in Vermont, sometimes even I overwhelm myself. As I am driven by activities in my endless quest for fun and adventure, I've added to my bucket list some places that I have always wanted to go to. I love being busy 24/7 when I'm up in Vermont and here are a few more additions! If you have ever been to these places, feel free to add your impressions, or even add to the bucket list yourself. I may add some more as they come across my itinerary. Because I live so close to VT, I sometimes make a day trip (albeit a VERY long day of driving) to add these places to my long list of amazing adventures in the great state of Vermont! :wink:

1. MERCK FOREST AND FARMLAND CENTER, RUPERT

This place looks enchanting!!! The Visitor Center, the Farm, the Forest. Why have I not been here yet? :roll: I just love their mission statement. I saw Merck Forest on so many websites and acclaimed on tripadvisor for it's sheer natural beauty. I see they are also on the Vermont Maple Sugaring Open House Weekend.

2. KING ARTHUR FLOUR, NORWICH

Mostly everyone I've met who lives or travels to Vermont has stopped here. I'm next!!! :D

3. SOUTHERN VERMONT ARTS CENTER SCULPTURE PARK AND TRAILS, MANCHESTER

i couldn't fit this in during my Manchester foliage weekend in 2017 but will be there for Columbus Day Weekend in 2018 for a longer stay. I think "Dean" from the forum, was the first person who kept posting about it years ago. It looks like a beautiful and fun place to visit. Thus, I have added it to my itin for fall and can't wait! We hope to eat at Cafe Sora!!!!

4. THE ISLANDS OF LAKE CHAMPLAIN

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/06/trav ... lture.html

I found this tantilizing article online last summer and was so absorbed in reading all about the islands from this author who also made this a destination for his to do list! I had saved this on my favorites and someday, hope to spend some summer time there. I know you will thoroughly enjoy reading this very charming and detailed story on everything to do and see on the islands! It was so well written and there is a ton of information for you take note of!
