Many of the top Vermont hotels are in Newport, the state's gateway to Canada. Adventuresome travelers will find plenty of opportunities for outdoor activity in the area, including wildlife viewing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, and more. If you prefer to spend your vacation enjoying outdoor concerts, shopping in independent boutiques, and watching beautiful sunsets over the shores of Lake Memphremagog, you can do all that in Newport, too.
Hotels in Vermont in the north also give visitors easy access to the century-old Saint Anne's Shrine, the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, and the Vermont Ski Museum, where collections highlight clothing, equipment, and fine art related to the sport.
Some of the best cheap hotel deals in Vermont can be found in Montpelier, the state's capital. The highlight of the small town is the Vermont State House, a gold-domed building that is home to the Vermont Legislature. From the capital, explore the central region further by taking a tour of the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream factory, strolling through the Hope Cemetery in Barre, and hiking in the Stowe resort area.
Vermont hotel deals can also be found to get a special discount on rooms in Bellows Falls, a small but vibrant town in the south that still retains a 19th-century look. Take advantage of the low prices in the area, and make reservations to explore the antique shops, art galleries, restaurants, and Victorian homes that line Main Street.
Many Vermont hotel packages include hiking excursions on some of the state's 700 miles of trails. Both novice and seasoned hikers will find much to enjoy, including the Appalachian Trail and the Long Trail, which is the oldest hiking trail in the country. Book a cheap Vermont hotel deal at affordable rates near the many state parks to spot moose, stroll through old growth forest, watch the annual hawk migration in autumn, or kick back and relax under the shade of tamarack trees.
