Places to go

You can easily get by without a car during the school year. But when that 9-5 job ends, you're not left with much else to do. Here are some places in the "area" to spend some luxury time.

  • Lake Shaftsbury, VT. A short 45 minute drive away, Lake Shaftsbury offers a nice big lake with walking path around the lake, a dirt volleyball area, a wide open field for frisbee throwing and other events, paddleboats for rent, and more! $2 or $3 per person. Directions.
