Itineraries for Perfect Days

Headin’ North

A favorite among Vermonters and visitors alike is a leisurely drive North on scenic and historic Route 100. Stop for ice cream in Rochester (about 35 minutes North on Route 100) at the Rochester Café and Country Store and enjoy your treat while seated on a bench in a quintessential Vermont town green. A few miles further north you’ll want to take a another camera break at Moss Glen Falls Waterfall (about 20 minutes further on Route 100)  in the picturesque Granville Gulf, an eight-mile scenic stretch that is protected to remain forever wild. Just another 20 minutes North on Route 100, and  you’ll pass through beautiful and cozy Waitsfield, Vermont. Stay left on Route 100 and head for Waterbury Center and Vermont’s No. 1 attraction, the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory.

Turn back down Route 100 for your return to Killington. The drive back home only takes about an hour, but you'll no doubt want to stop along the way as you pass covered bridges, stunning mountain views, local shops, and hidden waterfalls tucked into the hills.

Killington Vermont Day trips

Headin' East

Just a thirty minute drive East on Route 4 brings you into Woodstock., dubbed "the prettiest small town in America" by Ladies Home Journal Magazine.  Kids and curious adults will want to stop by the historical Billings Farm and Museum. You can explore one of Vermont’s real working dairy farms, or check out the museum of Vermont’s rural past - a “gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage.” The farm features all the aspects of rural farm life including milking, crop care and rotation and production of feed. This historic farm and museum has been designated a national historic park.

Following your day at the farm, wander around Woodstock and explore what the town has to offer. Whether it's lounging on the town green, browsing the antique stores and cafes, or exploring the scenery surrounding the village, you're sure to want your camera at the ready!

Headin'  South

Route 100 South  runs along what’s known as the Lakes Region, a series of small lakes that host vacationers and day trippers throughout the summer. And less than an hour south of Killington on Route 100 is Weston, home of the famous Vermont Country Store. This staple of Vermont tourism is really, really hard to accurately describe! Browse everything from a department of penny candies to every brand from the past that you can imagine. Whether you intend to shop or not, you'll want to swing by just to experience a true 'Country Store.'

Weston also is home to the Weston Playhouse, one of the Northeast’s top summer stock theatres. Check the schedule as often there are matinees available. Another 10 miles South and you’ll be in Londonderry, where you’ll want to fill up at the Garden Gallery and Café. Surprisingly magnificent works in a great little gallery, and great meals to boot!

Headin' West

Enjoy the arts in historic Rutland, VT, just 20 minutes west on Route 4. Spend an hour or a day there, because there's plenty to do. Whether it's the recently restored Paramount Theatre (complete with balcony), the Chaffee Arts Center, or just wandering downtown Merchants Row and Center Street, you're sure to love this town.

Don't miss the New England Maple Museum, offering a tour of how Vermont's favorite sweet has been made over the past 200 years. Once you've had a taste, you'll want to remember to stop by any of Killington's gift shops to get your own bottle before you leave town!

Killington is central to all these places and more. When you stay in Killington, you're only minutes from some of Vermont's favorite attractions, and near some of New England's best hidden treasures.
