While initially the thought of enduring a year of Covid-19 can be a little daunting, rest assured there’s still plenty to do. While staying in Killington, VT (AKA the best outdoor playground on the East Coast), there may be days that you simply want to get away from your amazing vacation rental to try something new. Or perhaps the unyielding weather conditions have prompted you to seek an indoor oasis. Whatever your reasons, you need some indoor entertainment pronto. Which is why we’ve done our homework and compiled a list of fun indoor activities in Vermont for you to enjoy, even during a worldwide pandemic.
No matter where you end up, we’re fairly confident that this vacation will be one to remember. Who knows? You might even find yourself grateful that Covid-19 pushed you outside of your comfort zone and into something new.
One of the Most Inspiring Indoor Activities in Vermont
These are turbulent times, and as such it’s not a bad idea to look to our forefathers for some of the answers we seek. Abraham Lincoln said, “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” Let that sink in as you tour Hildene: The Lincoln Family Home, located in Manchester, Vermont. Currently they have re-opened to the public, with limited hours and some restrictions. Check their website for guidelines, scheduling, and operational details or call them at 800-578-1788.
Another of our favorite indoor activities in Vermont is the Norman Rockwell Museum. With plans to open mid-summer, check their website, nrm.org, for updates. Until then, check out The Virtual Norman Rockwell Museum, with new additions each week.
Step Back and Look at the Big Picture
Speaking of art, Vermont just happens to be the perfect setting for exceptional artists who draw inspiration from its beautiful landscape as well as its unique inhabitants (of the human and animal variety). Treat yourself to an art exhibition and see where your passions lay. Some of the favorite art hot spots that are open to the public include Brandon Artists Guild and Woodstock Gallery.
Salty? Sweet? How About Both?
Green Mountain Sugar House is open for business! Visit the red roofed sugar house to stock up on supplies of maple products, Vermont cheeses, and candy galore. How else can you eat your feelings through a pandemic? Check them out online to see what they have to offer.
Don’t have a sweet tooth? Opt instead for a revitalizing experience at Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center for a meditative experience in the Himalayan Zen Salt Garden. Visit their website for operational hours and Covid-19 guidelines.
