Good local food and New York Style Pizza. Best Pizza in Central Vermont (its all in the water)! Dine in, enjoy out door seating or get slices and sit on the rock wall across from the shop. Incredible waterfall just across the street. Hit the skate park down the way or just chilax and enjoy the beer buzz...awesome coop just down the street with all of your essentials. There is also one in Hardwick (but the Plainfield pizza is better) ; ) http://www.positivepie.com/plainfield/home.php http://www.plainfieldcoop.com/ 454-0133

Outside Vermont you know it as "soft serve." Most communities have a creemie shop in Vermont. Maple creemies are a regional favorite. You can get one as a chocolate & maple twist or plain maple. Our, try a maple milkshake. We're lucky enough to have several maple syrup producer nearby who also serves maple creemies. Bragg is the closest to our home and our favorite. Pet goats, swing sets, porch with Adirondack chairs and a sprawling lawn make this a great stop for a treat. The gift shop features many "cottage" style gifts and maple syrup produced on site. They'll even ship your syrup home for you. http://www.braggfarm.com/

Heady Topper, and lots of other good beers. Try the Focal Banger for a lighter buzz. Tastings, see the assembly line, buy brews fresh off the line and buy swag. Some people bring a frisbee and hang out in the adjacent field. You can even use it as an educational opportunity to teach the kids about the production process. Good stop on a day trip to the Stowe area. https://alchemistbeer.com/

An amazing trail network with a big climb, old-school tech, and some new-school flow. Perry Hill is one of the most popular trail networks in the State of Vermont and for good reason – it’s got something for everyone. The first climb is pretty stout, but don’t worry – there are a bunch of loops on the plateau that are suitable for all ability levels, or keep going to access old-school classics like Joe’s, Burning Spear, or Rastaman.......
