The Best Summer Things To Do While Visiting Northern Vermont

Some fun things I did on my recent trip to northern Vermont that I would recommend if you're in the area.

The Best Summer Things To Do While Visiting Northern Vermont

I recently went on vacation to Northern Vermont with my family and saw and did some pretty incredible things. We stayed in Cambridge, VT about two minutes up the street from Smugglers Notch in a beautiful little cabin we found off of Airbnb. Overall, the area was beautiful and we had an awesome experience there. While driving up, I was watching the beautiful view thinking to myself, “There must not be a lot to do here because of all the empty open space.” But that was not the case at all, we were not bored for a second while we were staying here and we could have stayed for another week and not been bored because all that there was to do in this area. Here were some of my favorite things we did over the course of these few days that I would highly suggest…

1. Ziplining

We went on a zip lining tour one of the days at Arbortrek canopy adventures right in Cambridge, VT and it was one of the best experiences of my life. It was so much fun and the tour guides were amazing. I highly suggest going through Arbortrek if you are looking into a ziplining tour. Also, they have tours running all 4 seasons, not just in the summer.

2. Burlington-Church Street

We were about one hour from Burlington so we decided to drive up for the day just to walk around the shops and go out to dinner. It was really fun walking around and seeing all of the beautiful things Burlington has to offer, especially walking along the harbor of lake champlain. You drive through UVM on the way to church street which was awesome and one of the most beautiful schools!

3. Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

A beautiful little path that starts in St.Johnsbury, VT and continues for 63 miles. It is the perfect running/walking/biking path and we definitely got a lot of use out of this. The views from this path are absolutely gorgeous and if you're in the area I recommend checking it out. You can access this path from pretty much any town it passes through.

4. Ben & Jerry’s Factory

Ben & Jerry’s factory is located in Waterbury, just the town over from Burlington. We decided to stop and do a tour of the factory on our way to Burlington which was a great choice. It was very interesting seeing the way the factory runs and the actual ice cream being made, as well as sampling the flavor of the day!

5. Drive through the notch

Beyond smugglers notch resorts, there is notch through the mountains and gets you from Cambridge to Stowe and it was really cool to drive through the skinny windy roads and look up and the steep cliffs beside you. I would suggest driving through here if you find yourself in this area.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
