“Billings Farm & Museum is just a scenic stroll from the village center of Woodstock, Vermont, and is regarded as one of the finest outdoor history museums in the country. Combining a fully-operating Jersey dairy farm with educational exhibits and interactive programs and events, Billings Farm & Museum is committed to providing education and enjoyment to visitors of all ages. From meeting our award-winning Jersey dairy cows, draft horses, and sheep, to exploring the carefully restored 1890 Farm Manager’s House, sampling Billings Farm cheddar, and taking part in hands-on activities, there really is something for everyone.”

Lake

Lodging
“With 98% snowmaking coverage and consistent top rankings for snow quality amongst the Vermont ski areas - it's hard to argue Okemo doesn't have the best snow in the East. Thirty years ago Tim and Diane Mueller designed Okemo Mountain with their two young children in tow - and it shows! Fast forward to today, and they still maintain one of the best Vermont skiing resorts with that same personal touch. Our guests tell us we're the big Vermont ski mountain that gets the little things right. Maybe it's the perks we offer like family pricing, sensible resort layout or service with a smile. Or could it be our commitment to snow quality, varied terrain and constant mountain improvements.”

“No trip to Vermont is complete without a visit to the Vermont Country Store! Note: there are two locations. The drive to Weston is more scenic and it gives you an excuse to visit this quaint town. The Rockingham location is good if you plan to stop on your way home because it is right near 91.”
