From mountain resorts offering year-round fun to lively entertainment along the waterfront, the small state of Vermont has a ton of big attractions for visitors seeking a true taste of New England.
More than 25 hot-air balloons soar through the air during the annual Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa Hot Air Balloon Festival. This 3-day event includes a variety of kids' activities, live entertainment, a beer and wine garden and, of course, hot-air balloon rides. The rides are offered either tethered (for the curious) or untethered (for the brave). Either option provides unsurpassed views of the Stowe area's broad fertile valley.
