Author: Christina Tree Published: 2015-08-27 Explore the Granite State with this best-selling, comprehensive guide to New Hampshire. From spectacular mountain summits to tranquil lakes and a small but vibrant coastline, New Hampshire has long been a destination for travelers seeking respite and recreation.

Vermont, An Explorer’s Guide debuted in 1983 as a primer on the rural state and its sights. In the more-than-30 years since, Vermont has evolved as a travel destination with lively small cities as well as iconic villages, a booming culinary scene and cultural riches to complement the Green Mountains State’s natural beauty. Her expertise matches Tree’s intimate knowledge of Vermont’s byways, honed over decades working on travel guides and as a regular contributor to publications, including Yankee Magazine and The Boston Globe. Vermont is not an in-your-face kind of place.

I have to say that I was somewhat disappointed with this book after reading The Countryman Press' superb guide to the state of Maine.

That book (the Maine guide) is the best I've ever seen for that state, yet the publishers let down their standards for their home state of Vermont. This is a good book, and an up-to-date guide. It's a good "where to sleep, where to eat, where to shop" book, but the historic and cultural contexts that make the Maine guide so good are largely lacking here. You'll need a companion volume of Vermont history to get the most out of your trip. This book won't be enough.

The maps are totally inadequate. A travel guide needs to give its users GPS quality or BETTER to meet the requirements of a modern traveler.

Don't let the flaws in this book put you off Vermont. It's a magnificent state, worth a journey to explore. But try to supplement your traveling literature with some heftier material. The history of Vermont is interesting and important to the United States. Stick with your GPS until the maps get better (in a future edition).
While packed with lots of information, this guidebook gave little detailed information about places to visit, side attractions, etc. In all honesty, my wife and I rarely used this book, relying instead on local maps available at businesses in many different Vermont communities. In the end, we didn't even bring this book home with us--we left it at the motel we stayed in on our final night in Vermont.
Written with knowledge and an obvious affection for the state, this guide far outshines others I've read about Vermont. The writing style is intimate and easy-going, and the author covers a lot of ground with a lot of useful detail. If I had to pick one guide to this state, I'd suggest starting with this one.
Following a recent very successful long weekend to Vermont I thought I'd share a few views on this guidebook.

This book is well-written and is near comprehensive for restaurants and places to stay. There are interesting facts scattered throughout and clearly the authors have a love of Vermont and the places therein. But there are a few buts, and with regards to the maps is a deal breaker for me.

The maps are frankly abysmal. They are the worst city and town maps anywhere without helpful things like restaurants, museums etc marked! It is annoying to have to use a second guide or additional maps because the large Vermont guide is not up to the job.

I did not like the lack of a clear section on the history of Vermont, its geography, politics etc. When history is mentioned it is in a very edited format with large jumps in the timeline. I like to know the history of something when I visit it to put all into context.

There is a slightly odd, slightly arbitary division of restaurants/cafes into 'dining out' and 'eating out'. It would have been more helpful to just divide places by cost of meal like every other guide in the known universe.

Ultimately I cannot say that there is a better Vermont guide out there as I did not use any other. However I would be amazed if there is not a guide with better maps. Suffice to say I will be wary before using an Explorer guide again.
Purchased this Kindle book prior to a Vermont vacation. I actually used it very little. I found the pamphlets and maps that we picked up on the trip were much more helpful.
This book is wonderful and very informative on guiding through the hills and places to see in VT. I would recommend it to anyone.
The Explorer's Guide was a fabulous reference for anyone considering visiting the charming state of Vermont. We took it with us everywhere on our recent vacation to Vermont and found it invaluable. We discovered that we have so much more to see and plan to return many times (with this guide as a reference!).....
This book provides all the information you need for a first-time trip to Vermont.
