DescriptionFor a town with only two traffic lights, Waterbury sure has a lot going on. It’s near some of the east’s major ski resorts—Mad River Glen, Stowe Mountain Resort and Sugarbush Resort are all close by. It’s a quintessentially quaint and charming New England village with an impressive historic district. You’ll also find interesting 19th-century architecture, a restored train station and even a covered bridge or two nearby.
In addition to the aforementioned skiing—cross country as well as downhill—there’s plenty to keep you outside enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery. There are trails to hike and mountain biking adventures to experience. You can fish in lakes or catch a trout in the Winooski River, launch a boat or canoe, or go for a swim or a picnic. Nearby Green Mountain National Forest and Mount Mansfield and Waterbury Reservoir provide opportunities for many of these endeavors.
Take a break from recreational activities and enjoy a sample of Cherry Garcia or Chunky Monkey at hometown favorite Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory Tours, or try a cup of the house blend at Waterbury’s own Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Visitor Center.
