The holidays are nearly upon us and life is filled with glittering decorations, endless parties, and the tantalizing smell of holiday cooking. Or is it? Is the art of cooking fading into the past as it becomes ever-easier and convenient to pop into the grocery store or the local bakery? We hope not, but time is always of the essence in our fast-paced society.
Getting cozy with your friends and family is what the holiday season is all about. Cold weather is truly just an excuse to spend more time inside chatting, dining, and laughing! Oh, and let’s not forget – drinking!
Spring, summer, and early fall usually get all the attention when it comes to having a wedding, but what about winter?

Many of the major wedding planning and execution woes can be easily avoided by having a winter wedding, yet most couples-to-be don’t realize it!
Few other months out of the year set the stage for paranormal activity and interests quite like October. If ghost stories, haunted buildings, and an overall spooky vibe pique your interest, then it might be time to visit Vermont.
Have you ever taken a getaway to satisfy your taste buds? Many of us plan getaways to tropical beach resorts to relax, or to exotic jungles for discovery and adventure.

As summer comes to a close, September brings a ripe opportunity – the chance to think ahead to the holiday season and get organized. Once late October rolls around, it feels as though the months fly by with little time to get anything done, let alone plan a holiday party!

It’s a way to thank all of the hardworking individuals for a great year, and get everyone pumped for the year ahead.
If you’ve never been to Vermont in the fall, then you’re missing out! A mere two words summarize exactly why that is – leaf peeping. Vermont’s nature is grand year-round, but when every tree is ablaze with vibrantly colored leaves, autumn easily tops every other season.
Looking back in time, is there a particular hotel that stands out in your mind? Whether traveling for leisure or business, a hotel plays a crucial role in being one’s home away from one. When the experience transcends ordinary and becomes extraordinary, the memory lasts.
Why is it that butternut squash bisque is served all Fall long, while fresh arugula salad with goat cheese can be ordered in the Spring? A great deal of thought, care, and insight goes into the curating of each season’s menu in a given restaurant. To get a better idea of exactly what goes into this process, we’ve asked Chef Brandy, head sous chef at Junction Restaurant, one of the most renowned and season-focused restaurants in Vermont.
Towering mountains, lush foliage, and the invigorating energy of summer in a place that has a long winter, Vermont is a dream summer getaway. Unlike California or Colorado, Vermont is quite small making it easier to decide where to explore.
