Vacationing in Vermont

Hi - we are starting to plan our vacation for next year and are planning on spending part of it in Vermont. We are going to be camping through Burlington, VT, Bar Harbor, ME, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. We have a daughter who will be 6 1/2 by the time we are on vacation.

What is it like there in August and are there amusement parks, etc for kids?

Thanks,
Lisa

Sorry you had to wait so long for a reply, but I just joined! Vermont is quite an undeveloped state overall, but Burlington happens to be the largest city, so there should be quite a few things for kids to do in that area. There is a museum named Shelburne Museum which I went to many years ago. Has lots of small buildings housing antiques, etc. My favorite spot for kids is the Billings Museum in Woodstock. It is a working Jersey dairy farm and has children in mind in all of it's displays from live chicken demonstations, shearing, weaving, etc. to a wonderful Museum and a restored 1800-something farmhouse which makes me feel I am back at my Grandmother's home. The Montshire Museum in Hanover is good for kids too, but really pushes evolution, which I do not support. The displays are wonderful, hands-on though. So much of Vermont is enjoyed best by those who love the out of doors, so if you are camping, you should feel right at home. Of course, there are kids here in my home time of North Springfield who claim that their favorite spot is my home, especially during April -July when our baby goats are the star of the barnyard! We do enjoy them and you're welcome to come find us too.

To get a true feel for Vermont, it's not amusement parks etc., it is mother nature! Hike Mt. Mansfield, go swimming brook/rivers under the many covered bridges. Letterboxing is a fun way to see Vermont, though we are few compared to other states, visit atlasquest.com to get area letterboxes that you'll be staying or journeying through to break up the travel from points of interest. Visit a touring sugarhouse, granted they won't be boiling but they would be able to give you a run down on how it is made and sell their syrup products. Ben & Jerry's in Waterbury, Cold Hollow Cider Mill as well. Lots of antique shops. Kayak the rivers, etc.

Vermont is on our list of places to visit, too! My DH has visited several times when he was younger with his family. He's said that it was absolutely beautiful. I know that we would love to tour all of the places that you've mentioned! My inlaws used to love real Vermont maple syrup and that's one reason they would visit there.
