Tour of Vermont Series


  I have lived in Vermont for many years and rarely stopped to look at the sights.  Starting in 2017, I made the effort to stop and visit some of the places that I see on my travels. This does not mean that I would need to spend money, but that I would take a few moments of rest and visit some of these places, instead of just rushing through life and never taking a scenic break. 

Here, in this post, I will share the listing of all the tours I have taken. I hope you enjoy visiting the sights along with me!

(Please click on the title of each stop to see the entire tour of each location.) 

                                               Tour of Vermont


First Stop"A Vermont Christmas Tree Farm"  (November 2017)



"This tour and the photographs were taken early one morning, as I was on my way into the city to visit one of my grown daughters (who lives 2 hours away).   Each time I drive to see her, I go right by this Christmas Tree Farm.  It is so pretty!"



 Second Stop"Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont"  (November 2018)



"I usually drive through Stowe,Vermont a few times a year. It is the route I take to visit some of my grown children who live a couple of hours away from me.  Stowe is such a beautiful town and we always drive through the main road, where tourists often linger, no matter the season."





 Third Stop"A Visit to King Arthur in Norwich, Vermont"  (March 2019)


 "We were travelling back from an appointment in Southern Vermont last spring.  It was getting close to lunch-time when the King Arthur Flour company sign appeared on the interstate.  I was delighted and surprised when my husband took the exit and said we could stop at their bakery/ café for a quick visit and lunch."






  Fourth Stop"Afternoon Tea at the Governor's Mansion"  (July 2019)



"One day I noticed an advertisement for Afternoon Tea at a lovely, historic bed- and- breakfast.  It was only 10 minutes away from a meeting we were to attend in that area.  I called to ask a few questions and then made a reservation to have a formal tea for two.  One of my grown daughters would be with me. I was told a simple tea with scone would cost $8.50 each.  This was an affordable treat that would be such a rare blessing!"




   Fifth Stop"A Visit to the Vermont Country Store"  (August 2019)


"We had an appointment in Southern Vermont recently. I was delighted to find out that we would be driving right past the famous country store.   I had no money to spend.  We did not buy anything on this visit.   But I wanted to just take a break and look around." 

   Sixth Stop"Scenic View of the Countryside in Vermont"  (September 2019)



 "On my travels through the state, over the last couple of summers, I stopped to get some photographs to share."

   Seventh Stop"A Visit to Mrs. Lincoln's Home in Vermont"  (August 2020)



 "We visited the city of Manchester, here in Vermont, late last summer.  We were able to tour the summer mansion of the Lincoln family. We also walked part of the grounds. It was an incredibly, restful place to see. I was also inspired as I thought about home life in 1910."





  Eighth Stop"My Trip to See Franklin Graham at Decision America Tour, in Burlington, Vermont"  (May 2019)


" I took a little trip to Burlington, Vermont the other night. I wanted to attend the Franklin Graham event and hear him preach.  It was to be on the fairgrounds and we were to bring chairs and blankets.  From what I understand, there were 3,400 people in attendance.  I have never been to anything like this before. But I dearly love reading about the old tent revival meetings in our nation's history. My grandfather was a revival preacher. My uncle was also a preacher in the rural south. He would have week-long revival meetings every summer. We went to these preaching services throughout my childhood.  It was such a blessing to hear.  This Northeast Tour by the Billy Graham evangelistic organization was an incredible opportunity for me to see."



We will add more tours when we are able to do some travelling again.  . . .
