Anything fun to do in May?

My brother-in-law (in a weak moment) bid on and won a two- night stay in the Trapp Family Inn in a charity auction. His vacation is in May and he and my sister are considering using the voucher then. Is there anything going on in the Stowe area around Memorial Day? They would consider day trips nearby, too, and would probably stay somewhere in the area for more than the two nights that they won. Thanks for any help.

Hi TexasCarolyn,

Tell him to consider a stay in Woodstock VT just over 2 hours south of Stowe down route 100. It is often called one of the 5 prettiest villages in the US. Check out the village website www.woodstockvt.com and May is when the tourist season kicks off, the vegitation starts to sprout into life and it is a wonderful month to visit the State.

Lots of great walking and hiking in May (though be careful to avoid wet trails so as not to damage them). The Stowe rec path is superb for walking, blading or biking, with lots of great spots for photos. Lots of little galleries in Stowe and Burlington if that's your thing. Burlington itself (45 min from Stowe) is a great place with lots of rec paths and restaurants. The marathon will make traffic a zoo though.

If it's late May, some of the first flowers and leaves will be coming out, so there may be some pretty scenery around most of the NE.

Enjoy

Thanks for the ideas. I will pass them along. After researching Stowe, I am wishing I could go along on the trip!
