Bennington, Vermont Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Strolling through Bennington is like stepping back in time to an era of covered bridges, steepled white churches, and gracious Victorian homes with verandas overlooking a vast and mountainous beyond. The sweet smell of cider tickles the senses, and long winding roads meander through hills and valleys with off-road farm stands along the way.

Fall is a beloved season here when the woodlands are ablaze in fiery reds and shimmering yellows. Hundreds of tourists travel through the area to bask in the beauty. Signs of nostalgia are everywhere ? the Bennington Monument, the Grandma Moses Schoolhouse, and The Old First Church, to name a few.

From hand-knit clothing to 18th-Century cupboards can be found in the clustering of quaint shops that bespeckle the area. Restaurants range from fine dining and international cuisine to down-home cooking and fast food.

Bennington wouldn't be part of Vermont if it didn't offer a full spectrum of outdoor fun. Of course there's skiing... and golf, and hiking, and so much more. Camping, swimming and fishing are favorites here. Mountain biking and snowmobiling are available, also. And what could be more invigorating than tubing or canoeing down the Battenkill River? There are even moose photo safaris to engage one's sense of adventure.

One of the best ski facilities in the area is Prospect Mountain Nordic Ski Center, seven miles east of Bennington on Route 9. With more than 30 kilometers of meticulously groomed trails, Prospect Mountain offers excellent conditions for both skate and traditional cross-country skiing. Snowshoeing trails are also available. There are facilities for all skill levels from beginner to expert. Backcountry trails weave their way out of Prospect Mountain into the Green Mountain National Forest, adding to the spectrum of fun that can be found.

For more than just its maple syrup, Bennington is a sweet and picturesque town that titillates with activity and exudes good old New England charm. Seated between the Taconic and Green Mountain Ranges in the southwestern corner of Vermont, it is located about 60 miles south of Rutland.
