We could see this giant thing sticking up as we traveled through Bennington and wondered what the heck it was. So on our quest to see a covered bridge, we found the monument. Nice little park area with circular drive. Pulled up, jumped out, snapped a few pics to add to our memories. Free, quick, not a exactly a destination,... More

It had been many years since I had been up in the Bennington Battle Monument. When my husband & I had a little free time on a recent trip we thought we'd go up and enjoy the scenery.

Monuments like these seem to be everywhere in New England, but this is on a serene and grand scale. The route to the monument is studded with beautifully maintained colonial style homes and sets at great tone for a stroll around the monument to enjoy is history and the views. Very nice.

We were stoked to head to the top of this imposing tower, but sadly we came at Thanksgiving! Although we had fun walking around the grounds in the freezing rain, and looking at the really nice statues, we were unable to get in the visitor center or the tower. Definitely worth a visit in the summertime, though! Some of the... More

My wife and I were on a Fall Foliage Tour and this was one of the stops on the tour. It was interesting place to see. They did have a good gift shop you could buy items.

Wonderful views. Great spot to ponder and soak in the history of the Revolutionary War. I sometimes just take a drive around the monument when I am in town.

The battle of Bennington is a nail-biting tale of what might have happened to the Continental army if things didn't go exactly right. While you can drive up the road to the site, why would you want to miss seeing the gorgeous old homes along the way.

A grand monument in the middle of Bennington and while the view is great I am not sure that it is worth the $5.00 admission there are many places you can get a fabulous view

This is one of my favorite foliage viewing spots in all of New England. Cheap, accessible and rewarding. The climb can be long if you take the stairs, but the line can be longer if you wait for the elevator.

You can see this even if you stay on the highway. This is the place to visit if you are going to stop here.
