General Information

Counted as the second least populous state in the USA, Vermont is also the 6th smallest state by area. Surrounded entirely by land, Vermont has Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New York as its bordering states. It also shares a common border with Canada. Montpelier is the state capital and Burlington is the largest city.

Vermont has the distinction of being the country’s largest maple syrup producer and this is the largest industry in the state. The name Vermont is derived from French words meaning ‘Green Mountain’ and the vast expanses forests make it an apt nickname.
Vermont is endowed with stunning natural beauty and the state with its green landscapes, maple trees and forest carpeted expanses makes for a beautiful sight and a memorable holiday. Winter sports are extremely appealing as several locations across the state present ideal sport conditions. Some renowned ski resorts find place here and make a winter holiday truly exciting.

A major attraction during all seasons is the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock. Another location that has abundant recreational possibilities is the 400,000 acre Green Mountain National Forest spread across south-west and west-central Vermont. An acclaimed resort is the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe established by the Sound of Music fame - von Trapp’s. Historical sites of importance include the Hubbardston Battlefield which was the site of the American Revolutionary War, President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site and the Joesph Smith Memorial.

Every season in Vermont has something special to offer. The valleys and rivers of the state give the summer holiday an exciting touch while winters are perfect for skiing. Fall bestows the landscape with bright hues of orange, yellow and red and the Green state is full of verve in spring.
