Kingdom Guide Spring 2015
A Guide to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont
Many say the three counties in the northeast part of the state are “what Vermont used to be.” Caledonia, Orleans and Essex counties are well-known for their natural beauty and not just during foliage. The only sprawl you’ll find in this part of Vermont are farms, villages and small towns blanketing a hilly landscape with vast expanses of old forest, streams, lakes, ponds and trails.
Easily accessible from the north and south by I-91, and also from I-93, the Northeast Kingdom is traversed by scenic highways and dirt roads that have less traffic and better views. This region is one of Vermont’s least populated, with the biggest centers being in St. Johnsbury, Lyndonville and Newport.
The Northeast Kingdom is a top Geotourism destination in the United States and the world. Museums, historic sites and arts centers are just as easy to find as recreational opportunities for all seasons. Whether your tastes call for mountain biking, golf, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, boating, fishing, hunting or wildlife viewing, the Northeast Kingdom has it all.
The Kingdom Guide is a one-of-a-kind, one-stop resource for 47 communities in the Northeast Kingdom. The reference guide and community almanac includes historical information, statistical data and demographics, as well as information on local and state government, the arts, schools and education, employment and industry, state forests, recreation, museums and historical sites, clubs and organizations, human services, medical services, transportation, broadband availability, utilities places of worship and much more! A must for anyone visiting or relocating to the Green Mountains!
