Home to Native American tribes, French and British colonists, the New Hampshire and New York settlers, Vermont covers a historic swath of New England, and has always been a cultural crossroads. See the places they saw, take in the views that inspired them, and live the rich heritage that these diverse groups left behind. Sightseeing in Vermont is many-faceted, and you are sure to find your own way to connect with the people and places that make her a welcome refuge from the pace of 21st century life.
