As New England (and one of the nation’s) most rural states, Vermont is not lacking in stunning rustic vistas to capture and enjoy. People think that Vermont is all small-town charm and there is that, but to me what makes Vermont such a special place is the miles and miles of untouched isolation and natural beauty.

The best thing to do to see all of these beautiful spots is to take a drive, Vermont is known for its scenic byways, and all of them promise untouched rustic beauty and surprising gems. You can help plan your trip by reading all about Vermont’s Byways here.

Wherever your road may take you, you might want to plot your course in advance as cell service can be extremely spotty in many parts of the state, but the adventure is in the getting there! Enjoy!
