Playing, Touring, and Shopping in Waterbury

From mountain high to low gear

Vermont's year 'round ground for adventure.

Waterbury’s playground is the peaks, valleys, and rivers of the Green Mountains. Our culture and people are naturally active…ski or ride hundreds of miles of powder-packed terrain at four renowned resorts, all within fifteen miles of Waterbury. Backcountry trails, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice skating and even sleigh rides comprise the winter activities roster.

As the days grow longer, pack your backpack and summit some of the high peaks. Swim in our lakes and rivers; try your hand at canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and fishing. Or for something more low key, take a scenic driving tour amid granite-edged mountains, valleys dappled with farms, rushing streams, covered bridges, and historic villages. The shops, restaurants, attractions, and cultural events that you will encounter along the way reflect contemporary creativity. 

Take a break and watch ice cream and cider materialize before your eyes, sample and shop fresh Vermont-made products, and savor the farm-to-table cuisine our restaurants have refined to perfection. Browse boutiques or discover an eclectic weekend flea market, and end the day on the town with complimentary open-air performances.

Join us for an afternoon or for a week. From a village stroll to all-out exhilaration, you’re bound to find your fun.
