Foliage season is still underway here in Southern Vermont, and what better way to celebrate than with the weird but fun Gilfeather Turnip Festival in nearby Wardsboro, VT. The festival honors the unusually large and lumpy looking Gilfeather Turnip, a local delicacy that’s surprisingly delicious. Even if you don’t like turnips (and you might like these) you’re bound to enjoy the local color and homespun charm of this agricultural tradition, now in it’s 16th year! Stay at the Gray Ghost Inn, your hub for autumn leaf peeping, early Christmas shopping, and yes, Gilfeather Turnip tasting (although you’ll have to go to the festival to get your fill).

Great news — Mud Season is past and it’s now officially Spring in Vermont from south to north. Visit us now in Southern Vermont, where the trees are flowering, the bulbs are in bloom, and our state color — green — is returning to the landscape. Better still, the weather is warming up again and we’re seeing temps as high as the 70s.
Have we talked you into it yet? If you haven’t spent time in Vermont in the springtime, you owe yourself the treat. Nothing could be more lovely, whether your passion is hiking (in our verdant woods), riding (on our picturesque country roads), or just taking a lazy drive to a nearby town or watering hole.
