I just want to say this about Rutland - only hospital ER I have ever seen with a permanent sign on the wall detailing all the circumstances under which you can or can not get a prescription or a refill on pain meds, whether you are local or out of the area. Just sayin.

On the hospital, I don't have much experience with it, but I understand it is the 2nd largest hospital in Vermont.

So I'm going to be headed to Proctor (Rutland area) the first weekend of September for three days to check the area out. Any must see attractions, restaurants, etc? I really love museums and eclectic/odd food.

I'll be pretty booked during the day for meetings but will have time off in the evening to do some exploring, and I'll have time to stick around for an extra day to have a full day of exploring. I was thinking of hitting up Waterbury and maybe a drive up to Burlington. I'd be headed back to Syracuse so the drive won't be too bad either way.

There's nothing at the Paramount Theater on Labor Day weekend. Here's a link to their calendar. Most of the time, there will be a few things every month worth attending:

The Vermont State Fair ends tomorrow. There's nothing at the Fairgrounds until a demolition derby on September 10. Here is the link to that:

The Rustic Overtones are the free concert at Killington on September 3rd:
Killington - Events

There's an outdoor concert at Okemo in Ludlow on Friday September 2nd:

For restaurants, I think Table 24 and Little Harry's are quite good.

I would hit up the free concert at Killington. We go every Saturday. They have great bands and you can bring your own food and drinks. The venue is beautiful as you are right on the mountain.
The Garlic Festival in Bennington is Labor day weekend and is a lot of fun. It's a huge event with all sorts of food, music and vendors.
Waterbury is a craft beer, food mecca for the state. Great food places and craft beer is everywhere.
Stowe is a nice trip. You can stop by the Alchemist foe some Heady Topper, then take a trip over the notch.
