Want to experience a magical, romantic and simple part of the world, only four hours from Manhattan NYC and three hours from the Gold Coast of Connecticut? This a dream for many people. But for the people of the Okemo Valley in VT, this dream is a reality, lived each day. Tracy Gavant, Editor of Travel Squire.com speaks to this quintessential life in her latest writings.
Located under five hours from New York City in south-central Vermont, the Okemo Valley comprises seven towns, each with their own appeal and character. Andover with its local artisans, Weston with its picturesque village green, the trout fishing and hiking trails of Cavendish, Ludlow’s fine restaurants, Plymouth’s historic sites, the small villages of Mount Holly and the beautiful architecture of Chester. Each will charm you with idyllic settings amidst rolling rivers and valleys, all set against the backdrop of the magnificent Green Mountains, breathtaking whether snow capped or sporting a rainbow of autumnal colors.
