Vermont: the state known for awesome fall foliage, beautiful landscapes, maple syrup, and Cabot’s Cheddar Cheese. There’s so much to offer in this small New England state, yet it hardly gets any recognition during the summer months as most people solely travel there for the fall foliage. Don’t get us wrong: the foliage is awesome. But, in our opinion, the summer in Vermont can be just as astounding.
Burlington is an incredible, quaint, vibrant city that offers excellent dining, lively shopping, cultural events, and plenty of outdoor adventure and recreational activities. Between the beautiful Lake Champlain and the rugged Adirondack Mountains, there is plenty of exploring to do within the confines of this unique state. And with both the Ben & Jerry’s factory and the Cabot’s Creamery Visitors Center, there is plenty of delicious American-made food to sample and tour.
This week, we added Darn Tough Vermont, a premier sock retailer, to our selection of unique, versatile socks. Darn Tough started with the Cabot family in 1978 in Northfield, Vermont and has been producing high quality socks in this small Vermont town ever since. Their blend of Merino wool and Coolmax sock technology provides an assortment of socks for many purposes: hunting, biking, running or simply lounging around the cabin.
Coming from Vermont, the Darn Tough team truly has experience with diverse climates; with their humid summers and incredibly chilly winters, the need for versatile socks that keep one’s feet both warm and dry is extremely high. By blending their local Vermont flair, experience, and high quality materials, Darn Tough has become one of the most respected sock providers in the United States.
Who knew Vermont had so much to offer! Between cheeses, syrup, ice cream, socks and amazing outdoor opportunities, the summer vacation possibilities are endless.
