We explored a bunch along the scenic roads through town. We also attempted to go to Smuggler's Notch State Park, but we realized it's not so much a park but a mountain full of trails. The trails seemed a little too intense for us, so we decided to head elsewhere.
We took a short trail down to a waterfall in a different area of the mountain. We also visited Waterbury Center State Park which was more the kind of park we were looking for. There was a lake, views, grassy areas, and trails. We walked a bit of the trail then ventured off to try some cider and beer.
Stowe Cider has a tasting room that we went to to try a few of their different ciders. They had a couple of good ones, but none of them really stood out to me the way other ciders have. I like sweeter ciders and these were more dry and wine-like. Kirsty has wanted to go to the Alchemist brewery, but they were unfortunately closed on Sundays. We went to a place called Idletyme instead. They were more-so a restaurant that also brews their own beer. They had a sampler called a Brewski where they serve you a bunch of different beer samples on a mini ski.
I didn't know that Stowe was actually a pretty big destination in Vermont. I pictured a sleepy town with not much going on except pretty leaves and old buildings. There were so many restaurants, shops, parks, etc. I would love to spend more time up there and try some of the different restaurants. We ate at a place called The Blue Donkey and I had an awesome burger that had bacon, American and cheddar cheese, an onion ring, and BBQ sauce on it. They also had curly fries, which is always a plus in my book.
