What do Cabo San Lucas, Daytona Beach, and southern Vermont have in common? They're some of the best spring break destinations you can visit this year. And if you think one of those things isn't like the others, well, this list of amazing spring break activities in Vermont should change your mind.
While everyone else is sunning on the beach, you can catch some rays on the slopes while carving turns at Vermont ski resorts. Spring skiing and snowboarding is a favorite part of the changing seasons in Vermont. The chairlift ride is warm, the snow is soft and, of course, you can work on that goggle tan to wear with pride. Plus, you can find tons of special deals that aren't available during the rest of the year. Just in southern Vermont alone there are four great mountains to choose from. Mount Snow is our local mountain of choice, but Stratton, Bromley Mountain, and Magic Mountain are all under an hour away.
If you do get tired of the slopes (can that really happen?) you can also enjoy some of Vermont's less traditional snowsports, including snowshoeing, nordic and cross country skiing, and tubing. There are plenty of activities for you to try out, without the lift lines and crowds of peak winter.
Want to get out of the weather? Nearby Manchester has great outlet shopping, so you can get a jump on your summer wardrobe. The Manchester Designer Outlets are a perfect place to feed your inner fashionista - with shops and restaurants dotted around a picturesque Vermont town including J. Crew, Polo Ralph Lauren, Orvis and more.
After all this activity, you'll probably want to get off your feet for a while. The Mount Snow Nature Spa is the perfect place to take a load off your shoulders, soak your muscles, and rejuvenate your mind after a long day on the slopes or in the shops. Massage therapy, special clinics, and even couples sessions make this one of the best spring break destinations you could hope for.
Once you're rested, you can hit up one of southern Vermont's many great local eateries. There are tons of restaurants in the area that feature cuisine to meet any taste. We've even compiled a list of where to eat on a budget for some suggestions - we promise you'll leave satisfied.
When the sun goes down, southern Vermont has some great nightlife - something no spring break destination would be complete without. We recommend checking out the Snow Barn for some electric live shows, or The Silo to catch the best local DJs and a long night on the dancefloor.
Even seasoned Spring Breakers have to rest sometime. Keep in the southern Vermont vibe by bunking in your own spring rental home with roomy accommodations, cozy amenities like a hot tub, and a true country feel you won't find in any other spring break destination.
