THINGS TO DO IN OR AROUND VERMONT

Battenkill Valley Outdoors -  1414 State Rt 313 Cambridge, NY. 518-677-3311. Bike rentals. Can bike on back country roads nearby into Vt. They have one tandem bike. Call in advance to reserve it!

Follow Molly Stark Trail that begins in Bennington, VT. Scenic drive. Along the trail, there are a few things that we can do:

Things to do in Killington, VT
K1 Express Gondola Killington Rd
Thundering Falls Trail can bring a stroller to this simple scenic walk to a beautiful waterfall

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g28966-Activities-Vermont.html maybe check this out as it is broken to sub-categories based on cities. It all depends on where your going to be as Vermont is fairly big.

We're going to Equinox next week Tuesday-Friday with our 5 & 6 year old kids, hope to make a TR. there is kids stuff to do (nice little hikes and paddle boats), and a nice-looking park at Bromley nearby.
