Fresh and Adventurous in Stowe, VT
Stowe's challenging Winters melt into Summers buzzing with activity. Stowe has an supercool one-road downtown and, for beer and wine enthusiasts, several fabulous craft brewing companies and vineyards. The scenery itself is worth the weekend away, but there are plenty of opportunities to hike, zipline above the trees, or kayak the crystal-blue waters. The ski resort, Stowe Mountain Lodge, transforms to a Summer paradise with farm-to-table food events, an outdoor pool below the verdant slopes, and an ice-skating rink turned farmers market. Stowe is also home to the Ben and Jerry's factory that offers tours and tastings.
