Just a few hours north of Boston, about two-thirds of the way up into the state of Vermont, the capital, Montpelier, waits for you to explore it’s glorious offerings.
The month of April is a must-see. If you love poetry, or even if you think you might not, find yourself in Montpelier to roam the streets and read the poster-sized poems displayed in the store front windows, two-hundred and fifty of them. What a fantastic treat – I can’t wait.
With a population of just 8,000, Montpelier is the home of The Vermont College of Fine Arts and three bookstores. That information alone tells us that this vibrant city is filled with culture as well as charm.
I haven’t been to Montpelier in several years, but this April will find me there taking the time to read as many of those poems as I possibly can and to breathe in the refreshing air of the surrounding hills. Quaint homes, farms and history are draped among the gorgeous terrain – there is something there for everyone. Let’s go !
