Travel Tips from people who've been to Vermont
Cabot Cheese! Visit the factory... it is a little bit out of the way... but the drive is beautiful. They let you sample just about as much as you want of any of the cheeses they make. There is a gift shop where you can purchase cheese (obviously) and lots of other locally produced things.Try the Kickin' Cow Cola... great locally produced soda pop from the Vermont Sweetwater company.
Good tip?

Gile Mtn. is a very beautiful and easy walking hike. Plus the trail splits off for those with bicycles. I wouldn't mind doing this trail again, for the simple beauty of it and for the experience I endured with my family. AND not to mention, the VIEW. Everything was priceless (Literary :-] )

Along the way you will encounter a mini lodge that looks like a camping cabin, however doing such is prohibited. At the moment, it also looks like someone is repainting the cabin too. 

After the cabin, and at the end of your hike is a very tall tower. Climbing it can give you a view of very well over ten miles. Plus you'll be able to see New Hampshire too, (walk up the stairs, and turn right, that is the direction of N.H.) as well as a hospital in N.H. 

Just be sure to wear proper hiking shoes, since there are some rocks that are loose if you step on, and in the autumn, there are plenty of leaves covering plenty of mud. 

Lastly, if you have any kids, this trail is kid-friendly, baby-friendly, and teenager-friendly. In my group of eleven, we have a 1 year old (Who was mostly carried up, but at the top she wanted to walk, so she was able to) a 3 year old, (He tripped over a rock or two, and a tree root, but he was running. Nonetheless he didn't even cry), a 7 year old, two 18 year olds, two 28 year olds, and the rest were well over 40 :)

Bennington has some really great places to visit. There is the Bennington Monument, which was built to commemorate the Battle of Bennington. You can take an elevator up to the top and enjoy views of the local countryside. If you can get near it in the fall, you'll see some beautiful foliage...but good luck doing that! The Bennington Museum is another good stop while you are in town. Robert Frost's grave is right around the corner in the old cemetary. There are tons of shops and stores all along Main St in Bennington. If you like to bar hop, there are some good bars as well...it's a college town, after all. I recommend Madison's Brewing Company. They have a number of good in-house brews! In August, there is a big parade for Battle Days. Always a good parade.
