Westport Vacation Packages
Westport is a small town next to Lake Champlain with picturesque views of the seemingly endless Green Mountains of Vermont. It is an enjoyable stopping point on the route to the Adirondack Mountains and lies inside the park of the same name. Find many summer and winter activities around the lake and many fairs and events year-round. Fish for trout on the clear, clean waters and enjoy the serene ambiance.
The town is known as the “Gateway to the Adirondack Mountains” due to its proximity to the stunning peaks. It experiences hot summers and cold snowy winters.
Play a few rounds of golf in the dramatic surroundings of the mountains at Westport Country Club. The acclaimed 18-hole course dates back more than a century. Rent equipment and a cart and enjoy views of the tree-laden mountains looming over the fairways as you play.
Stroll through Westport’s old-world town center and peruse various antique shops and arts and crafts stalls. In summer, head to the lake’s shore and go for a swim.
Watch a Broadway-style show at the Depot Theatre in the town’s historic train station. To get a sense of the local culture, attend the Wadhams Farmers’ Market just north of Westport on Saturday mornings in summer.
In winter, try sledding on the mountains or ice fishing on the lake. Bring your own skis and other equipment to enjoy snowy peaks nearby. Whiteface Mountain is about 32 miles (51 kilometers) west.
The town is the birthplace of the Adirondack chair, which has a comfortable shape with a straight slanting back and wide armrests.
