Motorhomes, RVs, Campsites, Oh My!

One of my family's favorite activities is using our motorhome to explore this great nation. We travel to interesting places, eat local foods, but most importantly spend time together.

This last weekend we did a short weekend trip to Vt. We enjoyed good food and good scenery.

Here are a couple of recommended places:

1) Vermont Pub & Brewery

144 College St.
Burlington, Vermont 05401
(802) 865-0500

2) Sweetwaters



(802) 864-9800

Sweetwaters is housed in what was the original site of the Burlington Trust Company. Built in 1925, the building retains its original moldings, cornerstone, clock, and architectural appointments. What were once bank vaults have been converted into walk-in coolers in the lowest level of the restaurant. An original door, gilded with the Burlington Trust Company's name, is still used, and can be found between the ladies' and men's rooms downstairs.On the main floor of the restaurant, you can see the original iron bank security grates above the entrance to the atrium. Security grates have been left on all windows that were originally on the exterior of the building.The atrium, originally an alleyway, was enclosed and glassed over. The wall was covered with a two-story mural, designed and painted by Wendy Copp. The mural is a depiction of life on Church Street in the early 1980's, and includes the faces of many local dignitaries and residents of the Burlington area.

3) Dakin Farms

SMOKED EVERYTHING! Utilizing slow delicate smoke from corn cobs.

You have not visited Vermont till you've visited this place and munched on something from this place!
