Autumn in Stowe, Vermont is a magical time
To see Vermont and the surrounding countryside at its most spectacular, visit Stowe in autumn. Frosty mornings give way to cool, crisp days - perfect for enjoying the outdoors. The colorful hillsides - ablaze with red, orange, and gold - are truly breathtaking. It's a treat for the senses and the soul!
To discover Vermont's spectacular fall foliage at its peak is far from an exact science. The timing depends on temperature, sunlight, and rainfall amounts. This makes the timing of the peak a little different from year to year and impossible to predict exactly, although it's the subject of endless speculation in these parts.
The fall is a great time to visit! Besides the spectacular scenery and cool temperatures, Stowe offers an abundance of activities to enjoy: unique and eclectic shops, galleries, live music venues, craft breweries, wineries, theatres, award-winning restaurants, and much more!
