Or like a group of those friends, actually. The Daytripper is produced by the award-winning staff of Kids VT, Vermont’s free monthly parenting magazine. We live in Vermont. We’ve got kids of all different ages and interests. And we’ve spent years researching and writing about local hot spots that are perfect for all-ages outings.
We filled this travel guide with some of our favorite places to play and eat across the state. Rather than a dense laundry list of things to do — c’mon, we’ve all got more than enough laundry! — it’s a curated one. The five routes we recommend contain both must-see attractions (think Waterbury’s Ben & Jerry’s factory) and hidden gems (the quirky filing cabinet sculpture in Burlington’s South End).
This guide is not comprehensive. Just because we haven’t included your family’s favorite creemee stand doesn’t mean it’s not awesome. Truthfully, there’s so much to do during the summer in Vermont that we couldn’t possibly fit it all in.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, we hope the Daytripper inspires you to hit Vermont’s billboard-free roads with your family this summer and try something new. Enjoy the ride!
