Maple Syrup Tour

The same tree that’s responsible for the majority of Vermont’s beautiful color in the fall is responsible for the best syrup you’ll taste! Make a plan to visit a maple syrup farm in Vermont. Many maple syrup farms in Vermont allow tours so you can see how the trees are tapped and the syrup is produced.

Enjoy hiking? Enjoy an afternoon at Quechee Gorge. Breathe in the crisp Vermont air and make sure you bring your camera. The gorge is a beautiful stop with viewing spots from the U.S. Route 4 bridge but also includes trails on both sides. The Ottauquechee River flows through the bottom of the gorge and is a favorite whitewater kayaking spot.

And if biking is your thing, don’t miss the Burlington bike path. This is an easy, family-friendly bike path converted from the Central Vermont Railway in the 1970s. You’ll cross parks and beaches, and you’ll definitely want to stop along the way to take pictures of the beautiful views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains!


At the end of the day spent seeing the sights and breathing in the crisp, cool, autumn air, you’ll want to return home to your new or used RV and kick on the fireplace. Cozy up with a warm chai tea and watch a favorite movie. Personally, I’ve always loved vacations in the fall even more than the summer, and enjoying the top 5 things to do in Vermont in the fall is no exception.
