Vermont has the greatest concentration of covered bridges
in the United States. A total of 114 in this tiny state,
many of which are still in use. The name "Vermont"
is itself derived from the French, les monts verts, "the
green mountains." After playing an important role in
the American Revolution, Vermont resisted the advances of
the neighboring colonies and declared itself an
independent Republic in 1777. Fourteen years later it was
the first state to join the original 13. Besides it long
history and its many covered bridges, Vermont is known for
its maple sugar, excellent ski resorts, lakes river and
mountains and its abundant fall foliage. When this state
is not springtime green, or winter white, it is red,
yellow, orange and gold sprinkled with pristine blue water
lakes and streams. It is the place where
Breakfast Inns dot the countryside and lovers come
to honeymoon. It is a place for whimsical celebrations of
past inventors, writers and artists and events. And its is
a recreation enthusiast's paradise from winter skiing to
summer time water sports, golf and tennis. This small
state is a big vacation.
