Places to See Before You Die
A few years ago, Patricia Schultz published a book called "Places to See Before You Die" (Workman Press) in which she recommends the village of Stowe. Personally, I would have just said Vermont. Her book has been on the NY Times Best Seller list for more than three years. Mine has not. In fact, it's languishing in non existence. So, we'll give Patricia the official nod for being the authority in this matter but reserving my right as a resident to expand her selection a tad.

She has also just published a book called "1,000 Places To See in the USA & Canada Before You Die" and Stowe is again included. It's published by Workman Publishing and no doubt available at your local bookstore.

The Travel Channel is broadcasting a weekly series based on the original book. And there is a website on the way.

Stowe, Vermont was also included recently in LIFE Magazine's '100 Places to See,' the only place in Vermont to be honored.

The LIFE Editor, Robert Sullivan, said Stowe was included because "It's pulled off the amazing trick of becoming famous and a destination, yet remained true to its essence: It is what it is, a New England village of great charm and a day-to-day that features village rhythms”.

The only thing I can add is that Stowe is great. A great start. Branch out in some easy drives around the state and you will be highly impressed with all the picture postcard scenes you will have around nearly every corner.

For such a small state, there is an amazing number and variety of things to see and do. That's why I started this blog: people sometimes asked me if there's much to do here. The answer is a big "YES", or better, "HECK YES!" If I were to spend my time more profitably writing a travel book about VT instead of this not-for-profit blog, I could publish a very thick book to answer that question.
