Towns of the Valley

Tap into the White River Valley! This is a fertile watershed of 14 towns clustered around a playful river.  The valley is home to distinctive communities and caring people. We value friendship and hospitality as much as hard work and a social life.

Here you’ll find a rare mix of authentic Vermont traditions and livelihoods enhanced by vibrant performing and visual art spaces, four seasons of outdoor adventures, cutting-edge industries, celebrated colleges, and quality local foods, fresh from the  farm to your palate. 

Whether you come for a performance, a vacation, a job or a lifetime, you will never run out of things to see and experience.  Pull up a chair, a chair lift, fresh air, a fresh pear, or a pair of tickets.  Tap into the towns and see all they have to offer.
