The U.S. home to the famous Von Trapp family (of The Sound of Music) and Vermont’s largest mountain, Mount Mansfield, Stowe is the perfect destination for a family vacation.
In the winter months, Stowe fills up with eager skiers and snowboarders looking to hit the slopes. Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak, at Stowe Mountain Resort, and the mountains at Smuggler’s Notch Resort are where to go for the perfect peaks. These mountains host some of the most difficult trails around, giving even expert skiers a challenge. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t trails for beginners as well.
Outside the mountains, Stowe’s charming village is home to many local restaurants and shops. Wander down main street where you’ll find art galleries showcasing local Vermont art, classic general stores, and boutiques. As you travel up the Mountain Road, you’ll find breweries, restaurants, and cafes offering fresh, local food.
In the warmer months, rent a bike for a ride on Stowe Bike Path, or take a day trip to the Ben and Jerry’s Main Factory, just 15 minutes outside of town. Many local farms allow you to pick your own fruits or veggies, during the right season. A popular farm in town is Stowe Hollow Nursery for the blueberries -- just ask anyone in town for Dr. Zuber's place, and they'll point you in the right direction. Head up the mountain road to hike up Mount Mansfield’s Hell Brook trail for a challenge. Sterling Pond offers an easier trail for the less experienced hiker. On the other side of town, you can hike up Stowe Pinnacle for great views from up above.
