Stowe is Vermont at its covered bridge and cheddar cheese best. Home to a ski resort of some repute, Stowe also boasts a quaint and historic town center lined with 18th century churches, antique hotels and general stores. The town proper is definitely worth an afternoon of wandering and browsing.Recommended for:

A church steeple rises over this quaint colonial town chartered in 1763 amid the Green Mountains. Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield, is here, as are both double-black-diamond trails and plenty of beginner runs. Aside from skiing six distinctive areas at Stowe Mountain Resort, there are simple pleasures like the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream plant, old-fashioned Shaw’s General Store, and Solstice, whose dreamy views of Spruce Peak and seasonal, locavore dishes conspire to make it one of America’s most romantic restaurants. If you’re in the mood, splurge on a stay at Topnotch, where a hot-stone massage caps off a day on the slopes.

Stowe is quintessential Vermont. Crisp air, lush green mountains and meadows, and blue skies pocked with clouds (at least in the summer, when I visited). The hiking here was fantastic - beautiful views of green tree covered mountains and valleys.
