BEST SURPRISE MIX
CHAPMAN’S COUNTRY STORE, Fairlee
Since 1924, members of the Chapman family have been steadily expanding the stock of this old pharmacy, founded in 1897.

SNOW FARM VINEYARD, South Hero
Every Thursday, June through September, popular Vermont bands perform outdoor concerts on the broad-faced lawn adjacent to the grapevines.

BEST HISTORIC STONEWORK EXHIBIT
HOPE CEMETERY, Barre
Featuring Barre’s legendary granite, this well-known cemetery serves as a museum of sorts of the immaculate detail and artistic expression that this famous stone helped inspire. Best of all, it’s free to visit. Maple Ave. (Route 14). 802-476-6245; central-vt.com/web/hope

BEST ARTY ESCAPE
