Stowe is one of the most incredible mountain towns in the country. If you are looking for a low key getaway with some outdoor access, this charming place, situated in a valley between peaks of the Green Mountains, is your destination. Drive the back roads to Mount Mansfield for some gorgeous views and go on a canoe trip to Boyden Valley Winery. The sugar maples look stunning, covered in strong shades of gold, orange, and scarlet. They make the surrounding ranges look absolutely magical.
