The Vermont fall foliage season is set to begin September 5th with a new program sponsored by the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing. It features weekly videos with the best peeping locations, places to meet artists, foresters, farmers and general store managers. For updates go to:
www.VermontVacation.com/fall and look for the “Seeing is BeLeafing” video.
This year’s events will have a special promotion called Apple to iPod. This is how it works. Twenty of the apple orchards are giving away free iPods to those pickers who can find wooden apples hidden in the trees.
Vermont has the highest percentage of maples with the most intense red hues in the northeast. The state is 76% forested with 50 state parks that provide tourists with more than 300,000 acres of State owned forests and waterways.
