The best part of being an adult is the ability to do a lot of the same things you did as a youth, only better and with more style! Any college student can do Spring Break in Florida, but as an adult, the excitement of being able to celebrate the coming of spring in ski country is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Following this guide to fun Spring Break things to do in Stowe guarantees that your adult Spring Break will outshine all the ones of your misbegotten youth. And because it all starts and ends in one of our Stowe Country Homes vacation escapes, you know the fun won’t end until you turn in your key at the end of your stay!
The younger versions of ourselves had the energy to play hard and party even harder, but as grown-ups we may not have the same energy levels—and that’s ok! Spend your Spring Break on the slopes schussing through the powder on Mount Mansfield, being sure to take a few breaks throughout the day. After your last foray down the slopes, you’ll be ready for some serious après ski. Luckily, The Matterhorn Bar & Grill is one of the top après ski spots in the nation and it just happens to be located right here in Stowe! It’s definitely one of the most fun Spring Break things to do in Stowe!
Food ruled your life as a constantly hungry teenager and young adult, but the wallets of poor college students only allowed for pizza and burgers. The deeper pockets of an adult mean this Spring Break will be one in which you will remain well fed, starting with dinner at Harrison’s at 25 Main Street! Serving an eclectic and innovative menu that includes crab cakes, steak, and a variety of other well-prepared dishes,Harrison’s has been a local tradition since they opened their doors in 2003. Don’t ask us to pick a favorite, as every meal served is spectacular, but their Venison Flank Steak is always a winner in our books!
When you think back to your college Spring Break days, what stands out the most? The music and the alcohol probably springs to mind first, and as an adult, even if you don’t recuperate as quickly as you did when you were younger, sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind and go for the gusto with a visit to the Rusty Nail Stage. Offering live music that includes covers of your favorite rock bands, tasty pub grub, and a guarantee of a super fun night, your grown-up spring break would be incomplete if you didn’t party the night away at the Rusty Nail!
And now it’s time to reap the benefits with an adult Spring Break spent in our stylish and comfortable vacation rentals. Contact Stowe Country Homes to reserve yours today!
