Woodstock, VT

On our second day in Vermont, we visited a few places that were all close by each other, but a little aways from Chelsea. The first stop was Quechee Gorge, which was surprisingly a huge tourist spot. I mean, bus trip-huge. They had a gift shop and a snack shack, and the place was pretty crowded. There was also a big antique flea market going on next to it, which we checked out. We didn't stay here long, as we wanted to head to Woodstock.




When I looked up towns to visit in Vermont, Woodstock kept coming up as one of the top ones. It was very quaint and has lots of shops and some covered bridges. It even had a Town Crier, which strangely excited me. The library looked nice on the outside, but it was closed so I couldn't see what the inside looked like. Oh, and the whole downtown area has its own WiFi. That's crazy.




There's something alluring about covered bridges. I guess it's the fact that they're old-fashioned and antiquated. We drove over a couple of them, and it's kinda scary to do so. I sort of place them in the same category as lighthouses. They're not these huge, elaborate landmarks, but they have some allure and mystery to them somehow.

We also stopped at Coolidge State Park since it was supposed to have good views. There was a nice overlook, but I'm not sure if there were other viewing points. We got there pretty late in the day and we didn't want to end up having to hike back in the dark so we only did the one trail and didn't finish it.




Our second day was full of travel, but also pretty relaxing. We pretty much just explored, ate, and hung out. We went stargazing a second time and got more blurry star pictures. We played a lot of Heads Up, which is an awesome app that's pretty much a guessing game. It's like a sort of digital version of the game where you have an index card on your head and everyone has to make you guess what it says. There's a whole bunch of different categories, and it's a lot of fun! Everyone usually gets super loud and into it, I highly recommend it if you have friends that are into that sort of thing.


  1. Woodstock was beautiful, I wish I spoke up and made us check out the Unicorn Gift Shop, it seemed quite unique.
