Addison County

Located in the lower Champlain Valley bordered by the Adirondacks to the west and the Green Mountains to the east, Addison County is rich in lake, pastoral and mountain beauty. History comes alive and each community along the Byway offers glimpses of its past along with an array of social and cultural opportunities—from concerts, museums and community plays to pancake breakfasts and strawberry festivals. In springtime wildflowers grow in profusion, making our roadsides, meadows and woodlands a welcoming garden. Nearby mountains, forests and lakes invite you to pack a picnic, enjoy swimming holes, hike the trails or camp under a sea of stars.

The area’s proximity to Lake Champlain and year-round recreation in the Green Mountain National Forest make it a desirable destination. Golf, tennis, hiking and biking are favorite pastimes in the summer; in winter, snowy mountains and fields are perfect for Alpine and Nordic skiing as well as snowshoeing. The golds and reds of maple, birch and many other trees make our fall foliage some of the most spectacular in the world.
