You've rounded up the little ones, packed the car with toys and snacks, and set your GPS for the Green Mountains of Vermont. One question remains... what are you going to do? Vermont offers kids activities by the dozen, in all seasons and for all kinds of weather. There's so much to see and do, you'll have no trouble tiring out the little ones with a day out in Vermont.
In winter, head to one of the many Vermont ski resorts and enjoy tubing and sliding on snow. In fall, take the kids blueberry or apple picking to enjoy the views and tastes of foliage in New England. When road trip season hits and the weather is warm and sunny, take advantage of playing outdoors with some of the following kids activities.
1. Bromley Mountain Adventure Park and KidZone Fun Park - When the last piles of snow disappear, Bromley Mountain Ski Area switches over to a full-blown adventure park for young kids and the young at heart. Parents and kids will share the fun of water slides, mini-golf, climbing walls, giant trampolines, zip lines and more. Kids under 48" are just $20 for a full day pass. Open daily from 10:30 am - 5 pm.
2. Southern Vermont Natural History Museum - Located on the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook on Route 9 in Marlboro, VT the museum features live and mounted exhibits of over 600 native New England birds. Learn about wildflowers and Vermont wetland inhabitants. In good weather, hike to the nearby summit of Mt. Olga for amazing views into Massachusetts and New Hampshire, that span nearly 100 miles on a clear day. Open daily in the summer from 10 am - 5 pm
3. Kids Playce - Just like the name says, this indoor play space is the "play"ce to find fun kids activities including a book nook, mazes, play areas, crafts and more. On an overcast day, take a ride into Brattleboro, grab a coffee and Mocha Joes, then head to Kids Playce and let the kids interact and make new friends in a interactive fun environment. Open Wed-Fri: 10 am - 5 pm, Saturdays: 10 am - 4 pm
After a long day of playing in Vermont, lay the rug rats down for a cozy night at one of our summer vacation rentals, centrally located between these destinations of fun.
