Bennington VT

What a great little town filled with so many neat things to do – there is something for everyone.  My favorite start  is at the visitor center and  this one did not dissapoint.  What a beautfiul place inside!  Free donuts and coffee were wonderful! The guide working knew so much about the local area and shared with us local occuring events that otherwise we would have missed -like seeing  the fun painted catamounts at the farm.   Bennington Pottery is a great place visit especially for those interested in making pottery.  There is a little self guided tour in the back where they make the pottery followed by the shop… just be careful for you can get caught up in the moment of  buying something made right there and pieces (even the seconds) add up quickly!  We then decided to go on the hunt for relics of Vermont at the Camelot Antique Center —  huge shop to roam and find unique items.  It is easy to loose time (and those you are shopping with) at this store. And though the Apple Barn may be seen to some as a tourist trap, prices were in line if not cheaper then at other places selling VT items and oh the bakery goods were delicious!    Head on over to Bennignton Monument afterwards but arrive before 5:00 so you can go up in it…. we missed that.  But there is only so much you can fit into one day… before the journey begins again with many miles still to go…
