With all these negative threads on Vermont, I'd like to add a positive one. If you're a beer geek or just like beer, we have some of the best beers in the world right in our backyard. We travel around the state checking out the various breweries. We've met great people, seen some beautiful countryside, and had a great time doing it. Vermont is a beautiful state with some very talented artisans turning out world class products like beer, cheese, and maple syrup. So instead of hanging out here complaining about taxes and the weather, jump in your rusted out car and head out to visit a brewery or cheese maker. Hill Farmstead was voted best brewery in the world and you can drive there. We just visited Bent Hill. His beer is great but it was worth the drive just for the views along the way. Lost Nation has great food and fun people.
When we drag people along on our outings they always have fun. They get to see parts of Vermont they wouldn't ever visit otherwise. You often get to talk to the brewer himself and the stories are always interesting.
So next time you're feeling like this state is getting you down, pick a brewery and head out the door!

Lol....tasting flights at the brewery to be brought home to consume. Or designated drivers. Most beer geeks I know are responsible adults who love the beer more than the buzz. A brewery has a different vibe than a bar. I very rarely see drunks at a brewery. YMMV.
Like anything, common sense and good judgment should prevail.
Now onto more positive notes"...........

Another fun thing to do in Vermont that does not cost much $$$ is visiting our awesome state parks. They are beautiful-swim, boat, hike, camp etc. You can often get day passes at your local library so it wouldn't cost anything to get in. My goal is to visit all our state parks in the next couple of years! So far this year I've been to Mt. Philo, Branbury and Button Bay.
