Weekends in Vermont

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I spend quite a bit of my winter time up in Vermont. We’ve got a ski house in Warren, VT which is about 20 minutes outside of Sugarbush Mountain.

I really enjoy the area because it’s snow bunny resort meets charming small town. When you’re on Sugarbush resort, you’ve got access to mountain lodging, resort condos, fitness center, fireside dining & casual bars & restaurants. One of my favorite things to do after a long day of snowboarding is to sit in the Castlerock pub with an ice cold local brew & listen to the live music. It’s just the best ending to a fun, tiring day!

The town of Warren is small & adorable. There are plenty of cute shops, local stores, breweries & restaurants. If you’re in the area, make sure to pop into the Warren General Store for a yummy sandwich & homemade treats! You can sit at the community picnic tables, next to the coal burning fireplace, and enjoy the local company. It’s my favorite local spot, for sure! p.s. the apple cider is amazing!

While you’re in the area, be sure to drive to Waterbury to the Ben & Jerry’s factory! Here you can tour the factory, learn the history of B&J and, of course, sample some ice cream! After all, who doesn’t love their flavors? #chocolatechipcookiedoughforlife

Also in Waterbury are two of my favorite spots. Be sure to dine at The Prohibition Pig– this local BBQ spot is the BEST spot in town! The drinks (local beer you must try: Heady Topper), the food (pickled veggies app, collards & bbq chicken are all to die for!), and the company. We always like to sit at the bar and chat with the locals.

Once you’re done with that delicious dinner, head across the street to the Black Back Pub. It’s a small, cozy bar with TVs and the best spot in town to watch NFL & March Madness! Grab a local brew & a spot at the bar.

So if you live within 3 hours of Sugarbush, I highly recommend going for a weekend visit. As you can see, there’s so much to do, even if skiing isn’t your thing. Explore the local area, embrace the Vermont lifestyle & make some friends. You won’t regret it.
