You choose how you would like to ring in the new year. Book our New Year’s Celebration Package, or if you prefer to venture out on your own we recommend the following restaurants for a delightful New Year’s dinner:

Museums & Historic Sites

The quiet season is a wonderful time to peruse the popular sites that are often crowded during the summer months, including:

  • The Bennington Museum is a must. You won’t want to miss its famous Grandma Moses exhibit and the early Bennington Potters designs.
  • Tour Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home! Tours are offered daily all year-round, but is particularly lovely this time of year bedecked in full holiday splendor, true to the era of the house.
  • Bundle up and head out to discover the beautiful historic Covered Bridges of Vermont and check out the Covered Bridge Museum to learn all about these quintessential Vermont landmarks.
  • Tip: Upon arrival, ask for our special discounted tickets to the Bennington Museum or Hildene.
