Stay to Stay Weekend – Bennington
September 13 - September 16
The Shires of Vermont
2019 STAY TO STAY WEEKENDS
Already united by a common sense of place known as The Shires of Vermont, history, and culture, this beautiful region between the Taconic Range and the Green Mountains also possesses abundant recreational resources, a proud agricultural heritage, and a robust entrepreneurial spirit. A wide range of culinary, lodging, and shopping experiences await curious travelers along our highways, byways, and country roads, and on our mountainsides and busy Main Streets.
Surrounded by mountains and enriched by the many waterways, including the Battenkill and Walloomsac, Bennington and Manchester have preserved what most of America has sacrificed: a thriving community center with a rich history, stunning architecture, locally owned shops, and small-town hospitality.
