A Day in Vermont

BY TARA BURKE

During the summer Cailin and I are always looking for outdoorsy adventures. We went on a day trip to Vermont and Cailin decided that our activity for the day would be hopping around looking for covered bridges. Before you laugh at this choice of activity, it’s actually pretty fun and you can treat it as a kind of treasure hunt. Covered bridges were created to keep the wooden truss protected from the weather and upon doing a little research into the history of the covered bridge (I’m a dork, haha) it seems people are very serious about seeing these historic bridges. There’s even a whole site dedicated to providing interactive maps for all the covered bridges in the U.S. and Canada. Turns out, Vermont is actually kind of famous for their covered bridges since the state built and still contains the most covered bridges in the U.S.

A Delicious Day in Vermont

BY CAILIN BURKE

Vermont is one of our family’s favorite places to visit if we want a short day trip. While we’re there we always make sure to stop at our favorite restaurants to get a good meal in before we spend the day roaming Vermont’s quaint streets. During our last trip to Vermont, we headed to Big Moose Deli for lunch where we always get delicious Cubans and constantly debate what drink we want from their unique soda collection. After making our way to Manchester and perusing the outlets and antique stores there, we made our way to a restaurant called Bennington Station, in you guessed it… Bennington, Vermont! We had never been there before but I had the most amazing lobster pasta while Tara had a steak. They even adorned our plates with edible flowers! Here are some of the photos I took during our fun day out!
