Vergennes / Bristol / Ferrisburgh
Vermont's first city, and the smallest city in the country, Vergennes is just 2 square miles, but it boasts one of the prettiest downtowns around. With historic buildings, Otter Creek running through the city, the waterfalls, Vergennes is a picturesque place. There is a city green with cafes, restaurants and boutiques surrounding. Walking from downtown Vergennes, you can access the Vergennes Falls Park and Macdonough Park where there are paths to walk on and picnic tables.
Route 22A runs through the city, making it quite easy to access from Burlington to the north, and Middlebury to the south. Nearby recreation includes Button Bay State Park, Mt. Philo and Snake Mountain. Vergennes is only 20 minutes from the Lake Champlain Bridge, making access to New York's adirondack mountains very easy.
Tucked away among the mountains, Bristol is considered the "Gateway to the Green Mountains." The town is known for its vibrant community, waterfalls, swimming holes, and charming and pedestrian friendly village. Located just 15 minutes from Middlebury and 35 minutes from Burlington, it's a moderately central location. Since Bristol sits as the base of the Green Mountains, it enjoys easy access to day hiking on the Long Trail including one of Vermont's highest peaks - Mount Abraham, via the Battell Trail in the neighboring town of Lincoln. Additional outdoor recreation includes Bristol Memorial Park, Sycamore Park, Bristol Falls and Bristol Cliffs Wilderness.
There are no Vermont Highways that run through Bristol, but the town can be accessed via multiple main roads including Routes 116 and 17 and by Monkton Road. Since the town isn't a "through way" for travelers, but rather a destination, this gives it a more private atmosphere.
Located to the south of Charlotte, and to the north of Vergennes, Ferrisburgh is the nineth largest town in Vermont. Much of the landscape is flat, with some rolling hills and plenty of views of the Green Mountains to the East, and Lake Champlain to the West. Ferrisburgh is known for its lush soil, perfect for agriculture. Ferrisburgh is a lakeside town, and there's plenty of areas that residents and visiutors can access to enjoy Lake Champlain including, Kingsland Bay State Park, The Basin Harbor, Button Bay State Park and Lewis Creek Fishing Access.
Route 7 runs through Ferrisburgh, making it incredibly easy to access from both north and south. Dakin Farm is a popular destination to stop at, with a fine selection of local cured meats, cheeses and other Vermont products. Ferrisburgh is home to the Rokeby Museum, which is a historic 18th century farmstead that was part of the Underground Railroad Shelter.
