We have some ideas for your Saturday, March 22, 2014.


We've got some snow to deal with but that's not stopping the Maple Open House weekend!

Visit Vermont sugarhouses across the state and watch as maple syrup is being made. It's a family tradition and you can be a part of all the fun! Find a list of participating sugarhouses here: http://vermontmaple.org/2014-maple-open-house-weekend/

Just make sure you call ahead to see if they're boiling because the sap is not so plentiful right now.
