Vermont Summer Spectacular

Vermont Summer Spectacular

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a trip to the cool mountains of Vermont, The Green Mountain State. Join Perkiomen Tours on this trip and you will discover Vermont's name sake hue just about everywhere. Consider Vermont your green light to fun and relaxation: Go!

From a distance, peaks appear swathed in deep blue-green, the palette of balsam, hemlock and white pine trees. Maple trees adorned with emerald, five-fingered leaves, contribute to the state's maple syrup production, while marble and granite quarries, said to be the world's largest, bolster the economy by increasing greenbacks! Light green apples hang on orchard trees throughout the state in late summer and fields of Kelly green crops show off the states green thumb.
