Welcome to the Green Mountain Byway!

May 22, 2015

On behalf of the Green Mountain Byway (GMB) Steering Committee, welcome to our website and the inaugural blog post! The GMB is a designated scenic highway, following Vermont Route 100 through and between the Towns of Waterbury and Stowe. The Committee is a partnership between the Town of Stowe and Town of Waterbury, including representation from Regional Planning Commissions, historical societies, land trusts, tourism organizations, state agencies, and other partners.

This blog post will keep you updated with events, things to do, and tidbits about our Byway.

This website was funded through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration’s National Scenic Byways Program. This is one piece of our 5-year long project. As you visit our website and tour the Byway, please take time to enjoy our series of 13 wayside panels, located throughout Waterbury and Stowe at popular locations. The panels detail the intrinsic historic, cultural, and scenic values found along the Byway. You can find them on our interactive map – “Travel the Byway”.

We’ve also developed two brochures to guide your journey. One is our popular Recreation Guide, featuring a plethora of activities in the area for your year-round active enjoyment. Everything on the Guide is open to the public, please note that some activities require a fee. The other brochure is a guide to Historic and Cultural Sites. This guide takes you to public sites we find especially representative of our Byway, showcasing historic, artistic, and cultural activities – from historic homes to farmers’ markets!

Lastly, a trip to the Green Mountain Club’s Visitor Center leads you to a respite in their kiosk – day or night – or for a tour of the Visitor Center. You’ll find plenty of information at the Visitor Center, or at any of the other visitor information centers located along the Byway.

This website was developed by our partners at the Stowe Area Association. All text and photographs came from contributions by community members and partner organizations. We invite you to take a virtual tour of our Byway but encourage you to get out and see the sights in person! There is something to do in Waterbury and Stowe year round, whether it’s a scenic drive through foliage season, skiing in winter, visiting museums in spring, or soaking up the sun in summer. It’s no wonder our part of Vermont is the most visited in the state!
