In the Killington area, you’ll be able to visit two premiere downhill ski resorts, Killington and Pico Mountain, that feature amazing outdoor amenities for the warmer months of the year. Killington Resort sits on 3,000 acres in the heart of central Vermont’s Green Mountains. Memorial Day kicks off the start of summer activities, featuring an 18-hole championship golf course, the family-friendly Snowshed Adventure Center, 15 miles of scenic hiking trails, and a bike park with 35 miles of mountain biking trails. The town of Killington is a tiny township with just 800 primary residents, so you can count on some small-town festivities sponsored by the Sherburne Memorial Library while you’re there. Hiking at the ski resorts is a fantastic opportunity, but there are many other trails to explore as well. Thundering Brook Falls is an easy and handicap accessible trail that leads you to the sixth largest waterfall in Vermont and beautiful this time of year as the water levels are at their highest. The long-distance Appalachian and Long Trails also pass through the town, providing easy access to popular and breathtaking trails.
Another popular destination in the great state of Vermont is the town of Stowe. The highest peak, Summit Mount Mansfield, can be summited with a hike on the Long Trail of if you’re after a bigger challenge, navigate the steeper Hell Brook Trail. When Monday morning rolls around, come enjoy the charming Memorial Day parade hosted by the town of Stowe.
For a fun excursion to Vermont’s largest Memorial Day parade, guests love heading to Vergennes. The historic cars, extravagant floats, and marching bands are sure to get you in the spirit as kids run around with balloons and ice cream spilled on the front of their shirts. Visitors love launching a kayak or canoe from the municipal docks and paddling over to the magnificent Vergennes Falls. Another fun option in this area is a visit to Button Bay State Park, where you can get your lake fix with access to Lake Champlain.
Variety Is the Spice of Life
Fancy up your traditional Memorial Day feast with a visit to the multiple farmer’s markets and specialty shops featuring local goodies. Your hamburger will taste so much better with a slice of artisan-crafted cheddar cheese atop it. Or better yet, fry up some bacon with some of Vermont’s famous maple syrup for a salty/sweet take on a bacon burger. Wash it down with a growler of your favorite locally brewed ale and toast our military personnel who so bravely sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms of this great country.
