Summer:

Everyone comes out of the woodwork during summer to try and maximize this brief season. Outdoors activities are extremely popular in Vermont, so it is worth it to get out there and enjoy nature like a local. You can visit the largest city, Burlington, which sits on the edge of Lake Champlain. The view is stunning, with the shadows of the Adirondack Mountains of New York on the horizon and the glimmering narrow slip of water between. There are a few sandy beaches to enjoy, but most are made of smooth, white-ringed rocks. Don’t expect a tropical paradise here, but more of a blue-brown sensation that is perfect for taking the edge off a hot and humid day. Nothing is better than hiking for hours through the woods, then topping the experience with a swim in the lake or a hidden waterfall. Vermont is rife with cascades and you can Google or ask locals to find the best spots. Some, like Triple Buckets in Bristol or Huntington Gorge in Huntington are popular with cliff jumpers and those who like a little more excitement in their aquatic experience. Be aware of strong river currents though, because it is quite common every year to hear about a drowning.

Understanding Bristol

Clifton Suspension Bridge by Night Understanding Bristol Bristol is England’s sixth biggest city and the heartbeat of the beautiful English West Country. You’ll find the Bristolian people open-minded, hospitable and heart-warming. Bristol’s prosperity is strongly related to Britain’s early sea-faring days and was the base for New World exploration. Therefore, there are many well preserved and inspiring historical sites dotted around the city. Modern day Bristol is a beautiful mishmash of the world’s cultures and its historical and modern arts scenes are prolific. Bristol is one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations and was selected in 2009 as one of the world’s top-ten cities. Sounds expensive? Sure, there are plenty of ways to burn a hole in your wallet, but here’s a few of my favourites freebies that won’t.
