Evergreen and freshly sprouted love blossoms in Vermont, an ideal destination for romantics. The state is true to its name, derived from the French words vert and mont, together meaning green mountain. Dense evergreens cover much of the state’s terrain, surrounding its mountains and climbing up their slopes. In the fall, the deciduous trees among fir and pine create a vibrant collage of yellow, red, and orange to produce one of the country’s most impressive seasonal changes. In three of the four seasons, Vermont’s protected lands offer a range of trails throughout the verdant terrain. When winter’s white blanket covers the ground, Killington and Stowe resorts maintain excellent trails for skiing. Spend a day on the mountains and stay for maple syrup in the morning at a luxury barn or a cozy cottage in romantic Vermont.
