You’re going to love these Southern Vermont day trips! There are so many beautiful things to see in Southern Vermont, that it’s well worth loading up the kids for an afternoon day trip. Exactly what you do in Southern Vermont will depend on the age of your child and the season you’re traveling during. My personal favorites are spring and autumn. But every season has something to offer.
Southern Vermont Day Trips
Before you head out, be sure that you’re prepared. You’ll want to pack a diaper bag or carry bag that has snacks, a change of clothes, a few reusable water bottles filled with water, and a variety of books, games, and activities to keep the kids busy during your trip. It’s no fun to travel while the kids are bored and cranky.
You’ll also want to be sure that you have the tire pressure, wiper blades, and fluids checked in your car to prevent any potential problems. Don’t forget to have a car seat check as well to be sure your car seat is installed properly and your car can handle multiple car seats. Don’t forget to pick up a Southern Vermont map and check with the Southern Vermont tourism office
There are a lot of Southern Vermont towns to visit. But, here are a few of our favorite Southern Vermont destinations:
If the weather is warm, you’ll definitely want to head to the beach on your day trip. Lake Bomoseen is located in Bomoseen, Vermont and has a nice, sandy beach for the kids to build castles as well as a playground, volleyball net, and a picnic area. There’s a nice spot in the shade if you don’t want to sit out in the sun as well.
Queeche Gorge is located in Queeche Vermont is features a stunning view of the gorge 160 feet below.There is also a restaurant and gift shop located nearby that you can visit. For those that are old enough, you’ll want to hike down into the gorge and picnic at the bottom. The view is breathtaking.
The Battle of Hubbardton is one of the historic battles that took place during the Civil War. Each summer near the July 4th weekend, there is a historical re-enactment of the battle. Not only is the drive stunning, but you and the kids will have fun watching the battle reenactment and visiting the tents set up near the battlefield. Hubbardton Battlefield is located in Hubbardton, Vermont.
