Why You Should Take a Late Summer Getaway to New England

Why You Should Take a Late Summer Getaway to New England

In Vermont, summer basically begins in earnest at the Fourth of July, and we fully embrace this special season as long as the sunshine and warm weather lasts, usually all the way into September.

But when the calendar flips to August, we notice that some people act as if summer is winding down, and they let a “back-to-school” mode take over.

Wouldn’t you like to celebrate and enjoy summer for just a little longer? Why not take a late summer getaway to New England, and make the most of the season the way we do in Vermont!

Gloriously sunny days, cool evenings, and nights that are perfect for sleeping are what late summer in Vermont is all about.
