Let it snow!
Whether you are looking for Bennington, Vermont area real estate, or consider yourself a Bennington resident already, the Vermont Green Mountains offer spectacular views and outdoor activities.
Our state has over 4,500 skiable acres, 900 trails and 150 lifts, with skill levels from beginning toddler to competitive adult.
You say you donâ€™t know how to ski but want to be outside? Snowshoes are the answer! Although in the past, snowshoes were important tools to help residents continue to work in the winter, today they are mainly used for play. Here are three places you can shoe:
- Lake Shaftsbury State Park – on Route 7a north of Shaftsbury
- Woodford State Park – on Rte 9 east of Bennington
- Emerald Lake State Park – on Rte 7 north of Manchester
Writing and receiving holiday cards is the exception rather than the rule these days.
But while looking for Bennington, Vermont real estate, make a stop at the Bennington Museum to view the exhibit, â€œSeasonâ€™s Greetings: Holiday Cards by Don Trachte and Friendsâ€Â which is on display until December 31, 2009.
The exhibit includes cards from Trachteâ€™s cartoonist father, but also cards from cartoonist friends such as â€œBlondieâ€ creator Chic Young and Al Smith of â€œMutt and Jeff.â€ Call the Bennington Museum at 802-447-1571.
