Best Things to do In Vermont in the Summer

Favourite things to do in Vermont in the summertime in no particular order
{Erin Out and About} Best Things to do in Vermont in the Summer

1.Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in Waterbury
{Erin Out and About} Best things to do in Summer in VT: Ben and Jerry's
Visiting the factory where this creamy goodness is made is always a treat to do. It's a lovely drive up to the small town of Waterbury and you are rewarded with rolling hill views and ice cream. I have yet to convince my family to stop at the antique shops that dot the roadside.

2.Drive through the Notch
This can follow a trip to Ben & Jerry's as Smugglers Notch is on the mountain road between Stowe and Jeffersonville. Worth the detour for the windy roads, picturesque rocky stops and short hikes if you are so inclined. I am not.

3.Shopping on Church Street
It's four blocks of pedestrianized walkways with local and some chain stores on either side. Restaurant patios extend into the bricked lane and with the hustle and bustle of shoppers, buskers, and shop workers it has a great lively atmosphere.

4.Sailing on malletts Bay
Obviously this one is a bit tricky if you don't have access to a boat or a friend with a boat. But generally just getting out onto and into the water will do. Grab that beach towel and head to the sandy shores of Malletts Bay.

5.Watching the Sunset Over Lake Champlain  
Sunsets are a thing of beauty almost no matter the setting, but over Lake Champlain the sun really does seem to outdo itself each night. Worth a viewing at least once.

6. Go to a Baseball game
The Vermont Lake Monsters is a minor league team for the Oakland A's. They play in Centennial Field on the University of Vermont campus.

7.Eat at Beansies 
Go for the Michigan, stay for the fries!

Also known as soft serve ice cream, but doesn't it sound more appetizing as a creemee? A family favourite is Black Raspberry or Maple. It is Vermont after all.

9.Bike Riding along Island Line Trail
Bike riding in general is a fun summer activity, doing it along the waterline makes it so much more enjoyable. Rent a bike in Burlington or bring your own.

10.Movies at Sunset Drive-in Theatre
Two movies for the price of one in the comfort of your own car? Count me in. This is a tradition for my mum and I. When I was a kid, I remember thinking it was soooooooo late when the movies finally ended. I mean, yeah it is late, but it's summer and when else should you indulge yourself?
