Fall is my favorite season, hands down. So since the weather has continuously been 80 degrees and humid in Connecticut, I have not been a happy camper. Luckily, my family had been planning a quick Vermont visit so we could visit UVM. When we arrived in Burlington this afternoon, I was in heaven. The air was chilly and crisp and the leaves were changing colors; what more could a New England girl ask for?

Granted, I have yet to visit all of the states. But ever since vacationing there two summers ago, it has become one of my favorites. I adore the laid back lifestyle, the weather, and especially the locally produced food. It's funny how I know I want to go to college in New York City or Vermont--they are complete opposites! For those of you ever planning on visiting, here is a must-do activity list:
  • Visit the Ben & Jerry's Factory; I've gone on the tour three times and each time just gets better and better! (I am a bit ice cream obsessed, though..)

  • Shop downtown Burlington; with an American Apparel, a myriad of Vermont-made stores, and great food, you could spend all day here and not get bored.

  • Rent a cabin on Lake Champlain; This is the definition of a relaxing vacation: being surrounded by the wilderness and the lake is just amazing!
  • Buy your food at local co-ops; Supporting local farmers is a great way to do your part in helping to save the environment (plus the food is just better that way!).

While in Burlington, I picked up a few American Apparel necessities...
