National Vermont Day

On National Vermont Day, The Green Mountain State is recognized on October 12th. It is the 14th state to join the United States, and it is the 14th state to join the United States. The state derives its name from French words vert for green and mont for mountain.


Vermont is a densely forested mountain state, with Abenaki tribes primarily responsible for the Abenaki tribes' arrival before French and English settlers arrived. Vermont's first European settlement was established in 1666 at Fort Ste, despite being targeted by French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1609 for France. Anne is Anne's name. In 1724, the first English settlement was established.

It should come as no surprise that Vermont produces more maple syrup than in any other state. Although Pennsylvania has more covered bridges than in any other state, Vermont has more per square mile.

Vermont is adored by film makers for its stunning backdrops. We can't avoid the stunning views whether it's for eerie thrillers (What Lies Beneath), a good drama (The Cider House Rules), or a comedy (Me, Myself and Irene). The Von Trapp family of Sound of Music's story settling in Stowe, Vermont, due to the similarity to their Alpine home.

These stunning views are complemented by superb skiing, hiking, and the most stunning bursts of fall color.
