One of the 6 states that make up New England – along with Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island – Vermont is most famous for its ski resorts, autumn splendour and maple syrup! Indeed, this small state is the largest producer of maple syrup in the country; and marble too (but only a disappointingly second largest producer of talc).
Vermont is known as the Green Mountain State, a corruption of the French ‘vert mont’ or ‘green mountain’, and was claimed for France in the 17th century by explorer Samuel de Champlain. Lake Champlain, the natural freshwater lake that bears his name, is home to 318 species of bird, 90 species of fish and the oldest known fossil reef in the world. Vermont later became the first state admitted to the Union after the Constitution was ratified. It’s home to the 273-mile Long Trail, America’s oldest long distance hiking trail, that runs the length of the state and was completed in 1930.
Novelist Rudyard Kipling invited the game of snow golf while living in Vermont in the 1890s. Other famous residents include Calvin Coolidge, the only American president born on the Fourth of July, and the Von Trapp family that inspired The Sound of Music, who moved to Vermont in 1942 as it reminded them of their native Austria.
Vermont attracts visitors at all times of the year, drawn by its visual splendour, legendary hiking trails, colourful Colonial past, dazzling fall foliage, historic sites and beautiful covered bridges. Montpelier, with a population of less than 10,000, is the smallest American state capital; that’s less than 3% of the population of its namesake in southern France.
