There are so many things that you can do and places that you can explore in this awesome state. This post will talk about some great summer activities that we do up here in Vermont when it’s warm. Read on to find out all about it!
Life on the lake
If you weren’t aware, there are a plethora of lakes here in Vermont. This means that when it gets hot, we flock to the water. One of the biggest lakes in Vermont is Lake Champlain. This large lake is home to our largest city, Burlington. In the summer months, you can see people on the beach getting a tan or enjoying themselves in the water.
In addition to swimming, watersports are also a big thing up here. Since Lake Champlain is so large, there is plenty of water to roam about. Some people go sailing. Some like taking things to the next level and go parasailing! For those who are into motorsports on the water, there are plenty of great boat races around. In addition to racing, there are a lot of people who enjoy waterskiing and wakeboarding on the lake. For those who are into a tamer ride, tubing is also very popular here.
The summer is waiting for you here in Vermont! Come on up!
