Vermont resident Jen Rose Smith knows the best of the Green Mountain State, from sampling artisanal cheddar at the Grafton Village Cheese Company to skiing at Killington Mountain Resort. Smith includes unique trip strategies, such as “Vermont Villages” and “History and Literature Tour.” Packed with information on sights like Lake Champlain and the eccentric boutiques of Woodstock, Moon Vermont gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.
Jen Rose Smith came to Vermont for the mountains and lake, then stayed for everything else. She spends her time exploring the state on bicycles and backcountry skis with her husband, Daniel, searching out the sweetest picnic spots, swimming holes, and snack bars.
Jen is a freelance writer whose work on travel, food, and drink have appeared in Best of Burlington, Local Banquet of Vermont, Vermont Magazine, Traveler’s Tales: Best Women’s Travel Writing, Culinate and Overnight Buses. Since settling in Vermont, she’s continued to travel extensively: hunting iguanas in Maya Mexico, cooking in Italy’s “black kitchens,” and riding her bicycle across Newfoundland’s wilderness.
But her adventures in Vermont while researching and writing this book have been just as compelling, weird and gorgeous, and there’s no other place she’d rather live.
