For a classic Vermont excursion, plan on at least a day to cover this 50-mile, east-west route across mid-Vermont.

Visitors discover Vermont’s historic relationship to the land at places like the Billings Farm & Museum, a working 1890’s dairy farm, and the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park, the only national park to tell the story of conservation history. And for the remarkable resources beneath the land’s surface, the Vermont Marble Museum provides a rich history of the state’s marble industry.

Recreational resources abound all along the Byway, for both the active or passive traveler. Killington and Mendon provide four-season mountain activities, and there are hundreds of scenic views along the Ottauquechee River.

Cities, towns and villages offer a huge range of restaurant choices and lodgings, as well as galleries, breweries, specialty shops, theater and music. During the warmer months there are a variety of outdoor festival and concerts.
