Green Line

1. Islands and Farms

Vermont RegionsThis region, which comprises much of Lake Champlain, offers all types of opportunities for recreation and exploration.

Each August, sample the delights of another great Applefest, in Montgomery.

2. Stowe-Smugglers' Notch
There's a great deal more than just skiing in this region. The mountains are among the most beautiful in the state and the length of the average day here became a Jeopardy answer. The answer was "Lamoille County." The correct question was, which U.S. county has the shortest day?" That's because Lamoille enjoys two mountain ranges, one dominated by Mount Mansfield to the West and the other, the Worcester range to the East. The region is great for a wide range of activities including, camping, fishing (great fly fishing), biking, hiking, boating, canoeing, kayaking, skiing of all types, great golf, tennis and on and on. Among the attractions are: Mount Mansfield; Stowe Mountain Resort; Smugglers' Notch Resort; Emily's Covered Bridge in Stowe; and Noyes House Museum in Morrisville.
