Pick up your Heady Topper and other great craft beers. Tue-Sat 11-7.
Go for a factory tour or just have some ice cream and visit the gift store. Nice rest stop along beautiful Rt 100. A 1 hour stop is typical for motorcyclist.
Oldest continually operating general store in the US. Lots of great foodstuffs.
The Cabot side sells every kind of cheese you can think of, plus tons of free samples throughout the whole store. Crackers, cheese, jelly’s & Jams. Plenty to eat for free when you stop buy. Plus in the same building, right next door is Lake Champlain Chocolates store. Not too many samples here, but from what Michelle says its a great place for the chocolate nut.
What it says!
Hotel/restaurant/fuel/gift shop that serves as basecamp for making runs of Tail of the Dragon (NC 129).
Vintage Sunoco filling station, Car Lover’s Gift Shop, and a museum/collection of interesting collector car, trucks and vintage automotive test equipment.
Rated #1 brewery at Beer Advocate. Wed-Sat 12-5.
Very good baked goods to satisfy the most determined sweet tooth.
OK, so this is a little quirky and certainly not for those with acrophobia. The original owner mastered a process to preserve and mount real spiderwebs onto wooden plaques. This is a small operation that has caught national attention due to it’s uniqueness. 45 minutes for this “something different stop.”
One of the most photographed spots on the parkway. There is an interpretive trail with exhibits about Appalachian life. On Sundays there are often informal music gatherings. Weekend exhibits are not uncommon. If you get a chance, go visit the Meadows of Dan, at milepost 177.7. Very sweet little town.
An odd but don’t-miss experience, including lots of outdoor sculptures, “rescued” old buildings, and a Maine-made goods store with a cafe.
Gift shop of unique handmade crafts and art.
Self-service pie shed in rural Vermont!
Great fuel/food stop along TN route 421, aka “The Snake”. Stickers and other merchandise for the road sold here.
Large general store with lots of old fashioned Vermont-made goodies. Dine on traditional New England fare at the restaurant next door.
Living museum with period-dressed docents demonstrating the Acadian way of life. Hand-crafted souvenirs in the shop and traditional Acadian cooking in the restaurant.
Shaped like a giant blueberry! Great blueberry pie and desserts.
