Ah Vermont. The Green Mountain State and one of our New England neighbors. I love Vermont. Just something about the state gives off a calm vibe while at the same time melting away worries and stress. It's a welcoming change from the daily grind. I have spent many times in the Green Mountain State as I have friends that live in Readsboro and West Dover.
In 2008 after my wife and I were married, we spent our honeymoon in Burlington. We had a blast as we stayed at the Hilton overlooking Lake Champlain. I recommend Lake Champlain Chocolates for those who need to satisfy a sweet tooth. We also visited the aquarium and took tours of the Cabot Cheese Factory as well as the Ben & Jerry's factory. Cruising on the lake was also a highlight of our honeymoon.
