Things to do
Highlights of things to do in and around the Rutland/Killington Region of Vermont.
Vermont is Farm-to-Table Beautiful!
Vermont is the back-to-nature capital of New England, made famous by its pristine lakes and streams, rolling hills and mountain peaks, and Fall Foliage visitors from across the nation. Many a new, young farmer have set up businesses in Vermont for growing and producing modern agricultural products right here in the Killington Valley. Not only are we a vacation destination for weddings, hikers and visitors that appreciate high quality, fresh farm-to-table food products, but also for our long history of natural maple products of all types. The newest food producers are featuring grass-fed beef, which is also making headlines across New England and the rest of the country.
Gaining Worldwide Acclaim for Cheese, Maple and Craft Beer!
Vermont’s rapidly growing reputation for producing world-class cheeses and maple products of every variety is nothing short of phenomenal! Visitors and residents delight in visiting dairy farms and seeing cheeses being made by today’s artisans and farmers – many of whom relocated here after falling in love with the unspoiled and unhurried Vermont lifestyle while visiting on a skiing, biking or hiking trip. Nothing compares with seeing maple sap go from the tree into a boiler to become the purest and tastiest maple syrup, candy or sugar on earth! Craft beers can be found in every corner of Vermont today, so check out one of our beer trails when visiting.
