Late spring and early summer offer a different perspective -- a landscape cloaked in the myriad shades of light green that are the signature of springtime in Vermont.
In winter, the landscape changes yet again, the vistas becoming broader without the leaves on the trees. The palette changes to soft grays and browns punctuated by the stark white snow.
In any season, our back roads and byways will provide you with spectacular viewing opportunities. For more scenic drives visit Vermont Vacation.
