Hi everyone, happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! In today’s installment of our Vermont escapades we visited the capital Montpelier. I spent a good amount of time here as a child visiting family friends, but it was fun to spend the better part of the day visiting some old places and discovering some new ones!
Right off of 89 is State Street, and it starts with the beautiful State House (how apropos!) There is an amazing tour you can take and gorgeous grounds to admire all around the building. Next door is the Vermont History Museum, which is filled with information about Vermont that you can learn about for only $7!
Further down on State Street is Capitol Grounds, a coffee shop with a great vibe and delicious cold brew! We then wandered across the streets (past olive oil stores and —-) into Positive Pie, a delicious pizza shop, where we sat outside and watched our fellow leaf peepers stroll up and down the street marveling at the architecture. We then drove up to Hubbard Park, which has a ton of trails to walk around and a tower with spectacular views.
On our way out of town we stopped at Bragg Farm Sugarhouse to pick up some maple syrup to take home a sweet taste of our trip (there’s also Morse Farm, but we chose Bragg since it’s where my family used to go!)
Thanks for stopping by, make sure to check in again tomorrow for a new Vermont post!
