Nestled in the Green Mountains just off I-89, Waterbury is the heart of Central Vermont. As you walk along Main Street, stroll through the Farmer’s Market, or take in a concert in the park, “quaint” and “picturesque” may come to mind … just don’t call Waterbury “sleepy.” Waterbury lies at the recreational crossroads of the state, with quick access to idyllic parks, world-class ski resorts, and the state’s best hiking and mountain biking trails.
In summer, hike along the Long Trail to the top of Camel’s Hump or head out for a post-work mountain bike ride at Perry Hill, which is at the south end of town. The Stowe Mountain Bike Club maintains countless miles of biking trails in the area, while the Green Mountain Club and Vermont Youth Conservation Corps keep the hiking trails in pristine condition.
As autumn rolls around, you’re in prime leaf-peeping country. Ride your bike along River Road or break out the canoes on Waterbury Reservoir to enjoy the unreal fall foliage. There are always ways to escape the crowds so you can take in the beautiful colors.
When the snow starts to fall, you’re just a half-hour away from some of the best East Coast ski resorts. On Saturday drive north to ride the gondola at Stowe Mountain Resort, and then on Sunday, turn south to ride at Sugarbush or Mad River Glen. If you’re after a mellow day on the hill, make your way down the road to Bolton for a great family experience, or enjoy the hundreds of miles of Nordic skiing trails in the area.
Whatever you do outside, don’t forget to stop downtown at the Alchemist, Reservoir or Black Back Pub for a post-ride microbrew. If you’re after a fine-dining experience, make a reservation at the Hen of the Wood or Michael’s on the Hill to savor phenomenal locally grown cuisine.
But it doesn’t stop there: two of the most famous names in specialty food and beverage call Waterbury their home—Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream. So sit back for an iced coffee at Waterbury Station before heading up the road for a Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour.
Whether your family is full of foodies or outdoor junkies, Waterbury is a great place to call home.
