The definitive guide to the Green Mountain State

Christina Tree and new coauthor Rachel Carter have more lovingly than ever updated the Explorer's Guide to Vermont, especially since floods in August 2011 caused by Tropical Storm Irene devastated so many of the communities, businesses, iconic covered bridges, and scenic backroads in the state. As these towns and storefronts rebuild, so have Tree and Carter This 13th edition of Explorer’s Guide Vermont reviews hundreds of dining and lodging options from the remote reaches of the Northeast Kingdom to quaint Manchester and bustling Burlington. The authors offer great recommendations for the most rewarding spots to visit—artists’ studios, farmers’ markets, historic sites, and more—and highlight the best biking, hiking, swimming, winter sports, horseback riding, fishing, and paddling. Enjoy four seasons of events and activities; whether you’re a visitor or a resident, you’ve got to get this guide!

Review: Explorer's Guide Vermont

User Review  - Jdetrick - Goodreads

This is a wonderful guide book. Sadly, written travel guides seem to be something of an outdated concept in this age, when one can look places up on the internet, but when I got this in the mid 00's it was indispensable. Well written, smartly organized and very helpful. Read full review
