No matter the season, the fun never stops in Stowe. Whether there's a foot of fresh powder or it's hot enough for a dip at the swimming hole, there's plenty of things to do with kids in Stowe. Our Stowe boutique hotel has comfortable suites that will accommodate the entire family, and kids will love the fire pit and games at our onsite restaurant Picnic Social. Use this list of things to do with kids in Stowe to plan your visit:
Stowe's rec path is a 5-1/2 mile paved trail through town that's perfect for a family of all ages and abilities. It runs parallel to Mountain Road, but you'd never know it as you walk on scenic bridges over the Little River and through peaceful birch stands. Several access points into town make it easy to visit Stowe's shops and restaurants along your walk.
Nothing says summer vacation more than a game of mini golf. Stowe Golf Park is a unique course though, in that it's actually a miniature golf course, complete with sand traps and beautifully landscaped gardens—you won't find any cheesy windmills here. Challenge the family to 18 holes and treat them to ice cream at the end.
Vermont and Ben & Jerry's ice cream are practically synonymous, and the whole family will love to see how the ice cream gets made on this 30-minute tour. Enjoy a full-size sample at the end of the tour, and then visit your favorite retired flavor in the Flavor Graveyard. Located a short drive from Stowe in Waterbury, this tour is also great for a rainy day.
