Vermont Attractions Reopening This Summer

Vermont Attractions Reopening This Summer

Vermont attractions and destinations are reopening just in time for the summer season.

As COVID-19 travel restrictions are starting to ease across the state, Vermont museums, ski area adventure parks, retail flagship stores, and historic sites are gearing up to welcome visitors.

Still, this summer will feel undeniably different. Some major destinations, including the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth Notch and Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home in Manchester have limited offerings.

The Shelburne Museum, another big name attraction, will not open this summer. Ben & Jerry’s, a top tourism destination, is currently not offering factory tours at its Waterbury location (you can still stop by the scoop shop, which is offering window service and curbside pick up).

But the good news is that you can still experience Vermont, even if it’s not quite the same this year.

Before you visit any Vermont attractions or destinations, be sure to check online or call ahead for updates. You can also find information about travel restrictions at www.vermontvacation.com.
