My favorite local deli and bakery in Hardwick! Sandwiches are usually served on homemade bread and their chocolate whoopie pies are not to be missed! I also enjoy their homemade buttermilk donuts.

This place more casual but we enjoy their pizza and deep fried appetizers! My kids have recently been all in on their toasted grinders. They also have an outdoor cremee stand. Cremees are Vermont speak for soft-serve ice cream. Beware that a “baby” size here probably a “regular” size at most places!

Upscale-ish restaurant in Stowe. We recently celebrated a big birthday here. Their outdoor patio seating is better than their indoor basement seating. Definitely make reservations 1-2 weeks in advance for an especially nice dinner. https://www.harrisonsstowe.com/dinner

About an hour away in Jeffersonville, I wouldn't drive just for the restaurant but if you happen to be heading that way towards Smuggler's Notch, this place is a great place to fuel up. Call ahead to be sure you don't have to wait long for a table. 158 Main is very popular! I recommend any of the benedicts.

I enjoy visiting the Sheep Shop on Route 14. This is a homestead run by a family with hand-crafted sheep milk bath items, organic eggs, and other items grown or made on their property. They have a cute, small shop and you are welcome to visit their sheep, chickens, and ducks (fun for kids). Keep an eye out for a sandwich board and/or “Open” flag on the east side of VT Route 14 that marks the driveway.

Not far from Ben & Jerry's in Waterbury, I wouldn't drive just to visit the chocolate store but if you are visiting Ben & Jerry's, Lake Champlain chocolates is worth a quick visit. The cafe serves ice cream and coffees. My son can attest that they don't mess around with the chocolate dipped waffle cone!

Sightseeing
Caspian Lake in Greensboro has a public beach. This is a much larger lake than our Valley Lake but worth a stop if you happen to be in the area or headed to Hill Farmstead Brewery.

Vermont Route 108 which takes you from Smugglers Notch resort over the mountain pass into Stowe, has been called the most beautiful road in America! Beware that the road is very windy and collapses down to 1 lane at the top. You can park along the side of the road and go for a hike. Sterling Pond Trail can be accessed from this road.

Part of Smugglers Notch State park, this trail is a little over 2 miles but goes uphill the entire way to the pond. Some parts of the trail are rocky, muddy or slippery - or all 3! Wear good shoes and bring snacks and a swimsuit for the pond at the top of the trail.
