Area Info


Things to do:

Go up the Monument- great fun and fabulous view. Visit the Old First Church, complete with box pews and a very old cemetery. Bennington Museum- a real find, must do.

In Williamstown, 20 minutes south is the Clark Art Museum- a real gem, as well as excellent local theatre. There are some water slides, mountain bike activities at the ski resorts of Stratton Mountain and Bromley. Manchester Outlets- easy to spend a day wandering around. Vermont Country Store is in Weston, Vermont, a pleasant, pretty forty-five minute drive from Bennington. Be sure to check out the Park McCullough House in North Bennington.
