There are several excellent day trips from West Hill House, taking in the attractions, scenery and great produce that Vermont has to offer. Here are three suggestions for you. Use the links to get full driving details:
The Mad River Valley is close to several spectacular waterfalls and scenic gaps through the Green Mountains. One this trip you will see four very different waterfalls. You will also visit the picturesque towns of Middlebury and Bristol, both worth stopping at to check out the shops and the cafés.
What could be better than one day’s outing taking in both eight of Vermont’s famed covered bridges and a sampling of Vermont’s culinary prowess! You won’t need to worry about lunch after you have sampled ice cream, cheese, cider donuts and whatever else takes your fancy as you make your tour!
It is rare that you have the chance to see a raw material like granite being quarried then see one of the best examples of its use in monuments so close together. While visting a cemetery may sound like a strange thing to do, you will realize after you have been to Hope Cemetery why we are recommending it. This trip to nearby Barre will both interest and amaze you! (Summer only for the quarry itself.)
