Waterbury’s playground is the peaks, valleys, and rivers of the Green Mountains. Our culture and people are naturally active and you can join in the fun, with outdoor recreation for everyone to enjoy. Pack your backpack and summit some of the high peaks of Vermont or mountain bike down them. Cool off with a dip in the waters of Waterbury or try your hand at canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, and fishing. When the snow starts to fall, Waterbury is the perfect home base for all winter activities, including Alpine, backcountry, and Nordic skiing and snowboarding, and so much more.
Waterbury’s shops, restaurants, attractions, and events offer enough variety for everyone to enjoy. Take a break to watch ice cream and cider materialize before your eyes, or sample and shop Vermont-made products. Browse boutiques or discover an eclectic weekend flea market, and end the day on the town with concerts and live performances. Don't forget to use Waterbury Bucks as you support our local businesses!
For a relaxing day of sightseeing, enjoy self-guided tours of the area, like a scenic driving tour on the Green Mountain Byway, an historic walking tour, or a trip to see Waterbury's public artworks.
