- VERMONT VACATIONS
Killington, Vermont - someone
asked... why Killington... there's nothing to do there in the summer...
BOY were they wrong!
For a couple getaway or for a family friendly
excursion, KILLINGTON is our
choice for an ACTIVE day trip or weekend getaway. Come here if you
want to have a blast losing five pounds!
GET A DAY PASS
Killington's Pico MT, has the "BUNGEE
THING" a trampoline that will take your breath
away - I jumped and did my first double back flip! It was so
fun. Yet while the 4 year olds jumped for 5 minutes, I believe I only
lasted 1 minute and 16 seconds. Get there early and SIGN up or you
will miss this fun event.
I think the favorite of all was the PICO
Slide. I saw a lot of families with little ones just 3
years old and older and the kids loved it! One little girl was
screaming in delight for about five minutes after the ride she was so
thrilled by the speed and the trip!
I love water rides and Killington
had AWESOME water slides... unlike most water parks, the
water WASN'T freezing it was actually heated.
That was a real treat. The rock climbing and
skate park were also included in the one day pass fee. Many kids
and adults were enjoying Killington's peaks with the mountain
biking. Although we did not have time, we've done this at other
resorts and it is a blast. I would love to spend a week at
Killington in the summer or fall just to hike, bike and mountain board.
the energetic, kids and kids at heart - there was a lot to do at
Killington. For the less energetic, we
found the Killington Golf Course to be challenging (obviously hilly),
with amazing views.
We met up with another couple from
Upstate New York, who told us about the "VERMONT GOLF
PASS" it allows you to golf at all the resorts for one $55
fee, all you have to pay for is the cart. This is one deal we will
be researching further.
After a day of watersliding,
bungee-trampoline jumping, golf, waterslides, skate parks, and climbing
walls we were starving. We found just the place to eat.. the GRIST
We then set our sites on nearby
Woodstock, it's a beautiful town with quaint shops, my favorite was the
There, we found the highest quality "stuff" for your
kitchen. From the best magnets, to beautiful glassware and high
tech cooking gear.
