Thinking about spending the summer with us? We love Vermont in every season, but summer in the Green Mountains is hard to beat. Lush, green summer foliage offers the perfect backdrop for festivals, music, food and the great outdoors.

 

Here is our list of tops things to do during summer in Vermont:

While Vermont has some of the finest golf courses in the Northeast, none can match the beauty and design of the Green Mountain National Golf Course in Killington. Ranked Number 1 public golf course in all of Vermont by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine, the course is a must play.  Summer in Vermont would not be the same without playing a round of golf at this one of a kind course.

There are more than 100 covered bridges in Vermont: the densest concentration of these photogenic structures in the U.S. If you have the “go big, or go home” mentality, head to Windsor VT, where you can drive across the Windsor-Cornish covered bridge, which is the longest covered bridge in the country. There is no better way to enjoy a drive through Vermont during the summer.
