Vermont's Cheese Trail

Follow the byways from Brattleboro to Burlington to visit the award-winning artisan cheese-making operations on the Vermont Cheese Trail.

Eat smart: At the casual, candlelit Smokejacks (802-658-1119) in Burlington, you likely find local artisan cheeses in everything from the sprightly organic green salad with Doe's Leap goat cheese to a cheese board that features samples of the state's best.

Be fit: The Moosalamoo National Recreation Area is home to some of the top cross-country skiing in the region. Rent equipment from the Blueberry Hill Inn Ski Center and enjoy 43 miles of groomed trails.

Live well: Cheese isn't the only dairy product for which Vermont is famous. Tour Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory (866-258-6877) in Waterbury where you can try new flavors like strawberry banana frozen yogurt and visit the "flavor graveyard" where discontinued flavors are marked with mock headstones.

Where to stay:  Blueberry Hill Inn (802-247-6735), in rural Goshen, features a sunny reading room filled with potted plants and cozy handmade quilts on the beds.
