Vermont is wonderful in summer as the temperature is warm and there are plenty of outdoor activities, ranging from cycling through to swimming in the many swimming holes. Fall is a fantastic time of year to visit for the Fall colors - these start towards the end of September in the north of the state, and then progress further south throughout October. Vermont is also extremely beautiful during the winter months, and there are numerous ski resorts scattered around the state which are very popular during the season.
