Sights to See in Southern Vermont

When visiting southern Vermont there are some sights that you will need to see. I lives in this state for my entire life and I still enjoy visiting these places even today.

Adam’s Family Farms

This farm is a great place to stop and collect from fresh eggs. Visitors are allowed to do this. They can also help feed the rabbits and if they are brave milk a goal. There are tractor as well as pony rides. During the winter months you can take a sleigh ride to see the farm.

The American Museum of Flying Fish

The title may sound funny but this museum is very entertaining. This museum has the largest collection of flying fish gear and angling art in the world. There are over 1,500 rods on display with another 800 reels. There are 30,000 different types of flies to check out. There are also the tackle boxes from some famous people here including Babe Ruth and Jimmy Carter. You can even work with some of the exerts at this shop to practice your cast and see how well you can do.

Bennington Battle Monument

This monument is a great place to remember the history of the United States. The monument itself is 306 feet high and made with obelisk. If you want to travel up the monument you can relax and take the elevator. This monument is in place to remember the battle that John Stark lead during the Revolutionary War and victory over the British Army. You will learn more information about this battle as well as how the smaller American Army got the powerful British forces to surrender.

Dorset Quarry

There are times when the weather in Vermont does become very hot. This quarry is a great place to go and cool off. It is a family friendly destination and there is beautiful scenery to go along with the swim. This is one of the oldest commercial marble quarries in the country.

Hildene

This is the summer home of Abraham Lincoln’s son Robert and is still preserved to this day. This home will provide a little see life inside of the Lincoln family. Robert served as the secretary of war and was an ambassador working with those in Great Britain. This home is now open to the public on a daily basis and there are even guided tours. The home sits on 10 acres and you not only get to see the home but you can enjoy a nice view of the ocean and even sit out in the meadow. This is a beautiful place to come and visit.

These are some of the places that you can enjoy while you are visiting the state of Vermont. There is so much to do and see here there is no way you will get bored. By the time you are done enjoying the sites you will love this state as much as I do.
