Activities

Looking for something new to do this winter?

Yes, there's plenty of skiing, riding and other winter fun stuff to do.  But maybe you're looking for something a little different.  For instance, it's not too late to get tickets to Rusty DeWees's The Logger show.  Rusty, who grew up in Stowe, has yet another series of enteraining shows this month and next, 5 of which still have seats available.  Rusty's shows are hilarious, and feature amazing local musical talent.  Below is the schedule of upcoming shows.

  • Feb 20 VERMONT COMEDY CLUB Stand-Up and Improv Stars (Adults)
  • Feb 26, 27, GOVERNOR JIM DOUGLAS Evening of stories – VT. Quiz
  • March 4, 5, THE LOGGER and THE FELLERS Comedy and Music Show

You can buy your tickets online.

Then, if you haven't been to Stowe Bowl yet - you may want to check out this new state of the art bowling experience.  Bowling like you've perhpas never seen.  Rachel and Mark Vandenberg of Stowe's Sun and Ski Inn and Suites, have added a remarkable bowling attraction.  Equipped with a full lounge and eatery, you'll find some of your favorite dining items, and beers on tap.  Great spot for parties or other special occasions; and bowling league opportunities, coming soon.  Check out this video Mark put together of the genesis of this project.

Best Towns for Fall Foliage

 

Coldwell Banker's blog Blue Matter, is an award winning real estate blog, which recently featured the best towns in the country for fall foliage; and Stowe was rated #1!  The weather and foliage have been beautiful so far this year.  It's a little on the late side, due to the very warm weather we had for a couple of weeks, yet the beautiful autumn light highlights the colorful hillsides in and around Stowe.  If you are looking for some sight-seeing opportunities around the area and state, you can go here.  This coming weekend - Columbus Day weekend -  is probably going to be the peak of the season.  For other destinations across the country, you can read about The Best Towns for Fall foliage; and you can also go to Blue Matter for additional real estate related, and interesting topics.  Hopefully you are finding time to enjoy some of the joys of fall foliage.
