Things to do

Discover local delicacies close to Castleton

It just wouldn't be a trip to Vermont without trying some maple syrup, so take a tour of Green's Sugarhouse where you can see many varieties being made. There, mountainside maple trees are tapped, with the resulting syrup being reduced and bottled inside the factory. Once you've taken the tour, pick up a jug or 2 to take home, or some treats such as maple candy. Whaleback Vineyard has 9 acres of vines, with a rustic tasting room where you can try red, white, and even ice wines that are grown during the Vermont winters.
