Manchester, Vermont: Fashionable Resort Village with Upscale Shopping in Green Mountains

Slate-gray roofs studded with dormer windows distinguish Manchester’s colonial buildings, many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There’s an air of old-fashioned New England throughout the surrounding area, an idyllic rural landscape where you’ll find old covered bridges and stone wall labyrinths. The town is also nestled between the Green and Taconic Mountains, making it popular for outdoorsy activities.

One of the area’s most-popular destinations is Manchester Center. It has tree-lined sidewalks and a multitude of designer outlet shops, fine-antique shops, and independent bookstores. There are several charming restaurants in town, too, many serving locally sourced, sustainable dishes.

During winter, Manchester is a good base camp for skiing in the surrounding mountains. About a 15-minute drive east of town is Bromley Mountain, which has runs fit for both first-timers and experts. Frommer’s says the “the mountain features long, looping, intermediate runs that are tremendously popular with families and beginners.” Perched on southern Vermont’s highest peak about 20 miles from Manchester is Stratton Mountain Resort, which has 92 assorted trails and a high-speed base-to-summit gondola.
