Montpelier Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 83 photos

Before going to Montpelier, we already knew that its surrounding tree-covered hills take on wonderful colours in autumn: this is what drew us there in the first place. However, once there, we discovered a bustling natural product industry, with many products not being available at home.

This and the charming 19th-century buildings contributed to a wonderful Labour Day (Columbus Day in the USA) weekend trip in the smallest of the 50 State capitals.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful architecture for a small town; and no McDonald's!
  • Cons:Heavy reliance on cars to get around due to insufficient public transit
