Welcome to Montpelier


Though it is the capital of Vermont, Montpelier is a tiny town with fewer than 9,000 residents. The pretty downtown area is small and easily explored on foot, and offers a variety of parks, markets and theatres in addition to the historic gold-domed Vermont State House and Historical Society Museum.

Though small, Montpelier has dozens of shops, restaurants and pubs for visitors to amuse themselves with. Several academic institutions, including the Vermont College of Fine Arts, ensure an abundance of bookshops and a buzzing nightlife.

Montpelier has a few quaint inns and guesthouses, and makes a great base from which to explore the rest of Vermont. It is near to the heart of Vermont ski country, and visitors can sample freshly-made goodies from the nearby Cabot Creamery or Morse Farm Sugar Works.

Vermont is famous for its maple syrup, and other products like maple candy, maple cream, and even maple-cured bacon. Visitors to the Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks can take a tour of the sugar house, and see how the syrup is made, from tree to table. While the farm is open year-round, the best time to visit is in March, when the sap is flowing and the syrup is made.
