what to do around Smuggs

We are going with family to Smuggs, VT in last week of May 2007.

We will be there for 4 days.

I have a one yr old baby and 2 adults (mid 30s) + 3 Adults (60+)

I would like to find out more from people who have visited the resort about:

- Restaurants (Italian, Chinese, Mexican, American, Indian food)

- Grocery stores (travelling with family will need a visit to the nearest grocery store. Talk about a vacation huh :)

- Things to do around Smuggs (Within 70-80 miles of the resort)

- Outlet Malls :)

- Places to see, visit around the area.

Thanks.

There are no outlet malls per se, but the Essex Shops do have a few outlets such as Carters, Van Heusen, BCBG, Brooks Brothers to name a few. There are maybe only 10 or so stores there.

You can drive into Burlington and shop on Church Street & the Burlington Town Center. There you have a mix of local and national stores.

Smuggler's Notch is pretty isolated. You are not going to have a ton of dining options that are a quick drive. Assuming Route 108 is open through to Stowe already, there are plenty of options there.

Not sure about full fledged grocery stores. Depending on what route you take to Smuggs, you'll most likely go by the Hannaford on Route 15 in Essex, The Price Chopper just of 100 in Morrisville, or Shaws in Waterbury. You will find smaller stores in Jeffersonville for staples.

Other things to do...go to Cabot and visit the Cabot Creamery. Go over to Stowe and take the gondola, or drive up Mount Mansfield. Take a walk/bike on the recreation path. Visit the Ben&Jerry's factory. Visit Burlington.

Hope this helps!

Go to the town of Johnson and visit the Forget-Me-Not shop. Great clothing store.
