History, Culture, Farm & Scenic Touring

If waterskiing at 40 miles an hour or hiking straight up the side of a mountain for 3 hours is not your idea of fun, the Mount Snow/Deerfield Valley offers a bounty of more laid-back pleasures and endeavors.  Enjoy the quintessential beauty of Vermont with a tour by car or motorcycle.  Visit sites and museums where Vermont played a role in our War of Independence.  Attend a chamber music concert at the world-famous Marlboro Music Festival.  Or visit a farm where folks are still trying to make, what is quickly disappearing, a living off the land.  Below is a sampling of nearby tours, sites and cultural places that embrace the flavor of Southern Vermont.  We’ve also included waterfalls and houses of worship.
