Summer in the Smugglers’ Notch, Vermont Area

Vermont is famed for its diverse recreational opportunities, and the Smugglers’ Notch Area provides a perfect base camp for activities in the Mount Mansfield/Stowe area, Burlington, the Northeast Kingdom, and beyond.

Serious adventurers accustomed to traveling the globe looking for new challenges say the bicycling, hiking, climbing, paddling, and fishing here is world class, and that our region is unusual in that so many first rate recreational opportunities are concentrated in a relatively small area.

Vermonters take advantage of the fine summer weather, and events calendars are always so full of activities, it’s often hard to decide what to do.  Listings for a typical week include music festivals, plays, sporting events, arts and crafts exhibits, literary readings, workshops, community fairs, church suppers and breakfasts, and a variety of indoor and outdoor children’s programs.
