Vermont is a US state best enjoyed outdoors. Despite being the only New England state without a seashore, it makes up for it with its beautiful location on Lake Champlain. Vermont’s largest city is Burlington, which has beautiful lake views and many sports and recreational facilities. Vermont is the third largest US state in terms of the number of ski resorts: there are 16 downhill ski resorts and almost 30 cross-country ski resorts. In the fall you can drive along pretty country roads and explore quaint villages with white spiers and countless brightly colored maple trees.
