We recognize the importance of outdoor recreation to the state’s economy. Central Vermont specifically has historically been a destination for recreation enthusiasts of all kinds, and it has expanded greatly in the last 5 years. We’ll be expanding this page as a local resource for all types of recreation and places to stay here in the area.
