On Friday, we share three things to explore in Vermont. Now that’s officially summer, the list of options seems endless.
Here are our picks for Vermont fun this weekend.
From Nicole Ravlin:
This weekend, we’re sticking closer to home and going to Sam Mazza’s in Colchester to pick our own strawberries.
The have a strawberry festival happening which has proven to be a blast in prior years. You can buy pre-picked local berries or head to the fields and load up.
But before we head home, we’re going to hit up our FAVORITE ice cream place for a sundae.
From Edward Shepard:
My clan is all about a classic Burlington Farmers Market + Burlington Bike Path + Beach adventure this weekend. The 12 mile Island Trail path that runs through Burlington and Colchester is one of the most beautiful and accessible outdoor adventures on the East Coast.
A major stretch of the bike path was recently expanded and improved, making it more scenic and easier to traverse. Later this year, more improvements are planned.
We’ll end our adventure at the beach. We’re filling backpacks with snacks, a great new beach blanket, cheap magazines, bottles of water, and a can or two of something cold for the grownups. Easy, fun, and rewarding for everyone.
And you better bet I’ll be Instagramming that adventure!
