With summer near, most people don’t think to vacation in Vermont, and finding places to visit in Vermont in the summer isn’t as easy as you’d think. After visiting Vermont every summer and sometimes even winter for over 5 years, I have a few recommendations. Vermont is beautiful in the summertime and one of my favorite places to be. So here are, in my opinion, the 7 best places to visit in Vermont during the summer.
1. Mount Mansfield
Mount Mansfield is definitely one of the best places to visit in Vermont in the summer. This mountain is the highest mountain in Vermont peaking at 4,393 feet. After a steep drive up the mountain, you can find parking and then begin your hike. With multiple trails to chose from, (depending on your level of difficulty) hiking the mountain is a great experience. I first hiked Mount Mansfield when I was 11 years old, and 6 years later I still remember the excitement I felt the whole way up, and the triumph I felt once I reached the top. This hike is great for all ages and is a wonderful experience with a breathtaking view.
