Although the entire state of Vermont offers year-round entertainment, adventure, and more, there’s nothing like watching the picturesque town of Stowe come to life in the springtime.
Traditional Vermont Activities
As the snow melts and flowers bloom, Stowe welcomes the beginning of two important and traditional seasons for spring in Vermont: maple sugaring and trout fishing. Follow the sweet scents in the air and they’ll lead you to the maple sugar farms, where you’ll get an up-close look at how maple syrup is made from tree to bottle. Meanwhile anglers can wade into the waters of trout fishing—with or without a local guide—or get a crash course in fishing with a free casting clinic.
Beyond these favorite pastimes, spring in Stowe brings the perfect weather for hiking through the mountains, including Vermont’s highest peak at nearby Mt. Mansfeld, and biking on more than 50 miles of mountain biking trails. There’s also the Stowe Recreation Path for a more tranquil road cycling experience, while those who love being on the water can hop in a kayak to explore Stowe’s lakes and rivers.
A popular option for day trips is a visit to the charming town of Burlington, VT, where you can visit museums, take a waterfront stroll or Lake Champlain cruise, and explore the quaint shops along the pedestrianized Church Street. For a truly unique-to-Stowe experience, head over to the very first Ben & Jerry’s factory for a glimpse behind the scenes, as well as a scoop of ice cream!
