About Stowe, Vermont
Stowe, Vermont is the number 1 tourist destination in Vermont. Located about 30 miles East of Burlington - about 10 miles north of highway 89 in Vermont. It is about 3 hours from Boston, and about 5 1/2 hours from New York City.
Stowe, Vermont is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year. The Stowe ski area is often revered as the best place to ski and snow board in Vermont. It is one of the few places that hasn't succumbed to the large ski corporations and has remained independent - maintaining a cool, sophisticated retro feel. There is also great cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
In the summer, the Stowe recreation path is perfect for biking and rollerblading. There is also fantastic hiking, mountain biking, golfing, fishing, and antiquing in the area as well. In the fall, Stowe is one of the best places in the country for leaf peepers to witness the beautiful fall foliage. Restaurants in the area are superb as well. We make it a priority to try out as many restaurants in the area as possible - and we have not been disappointed!
