Just before Christmas, we went on a short trip to Stowe, Vermont.
Hubby and the kids love to ski so that is what they did but you
may be able to guess what I did while there.
Yes, a little shopping and exploring of course.
I really love New England and the small town of Stowe lived
up to the picture in my mind of an adorable New England town.
I took these photos with my phone so they're not the best and it was
very, very cold that day so I didn't take as many as I would have liked.
I was surprised how small the town was but I also loved that about it.
It was so picturesque especially with the snow and Christmas decorations.
Shaw's General Store sold clothing - lots of chunky sweaters and warm woolen mittens.
I borrowed a couple images from the internet of things I didn't get a picture of.
This red building is The Old Depot which houses a small restaurant,
a bookstore and The Stowe Mercantile which has lots of goodies to look at.
Of course every proper town should have a Public House . . .
. . . and a Cheese Monger.
It's never too cold for ice cream, right?
All of these pictures are from the main street running through the town.
I also loved that there were no fast food or chain restaurants, not even a Starbucks!
One of the places we ate was the Depot Street Malt Shop and it was very yummy.
Look how cute it is inside.
At first we weren't aware that most shops and restaurants close very early.
We were there in the late afternoon and we made it just in time before the kitchen closed.
I happened upon this cute B&B on the edge of town.
We may have to check this out if we ever go back.
Here are a few pictures from Stowe Mountain where the rest
of the family spent their time.
I know there are much higher mountains for skiing,
but these looked plenty high enough to me.
The scenery was beautiful!
Do you love little New England towns too?
I dream of living in one of them someday.
Thanks so much for visiting today.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
