Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to take the time to remember our veterans who have given their lives to protect our freedoms. And here in Vermont, we take our freedom seriously. Freedom and unity!

Ceremonies & Cemeteries
Official ceremonies may be curtailed or canceled again this year, but we can still remember our veterans. There are past ceremonies online to watch, and many cemeteries and Veteran groups will be live-streaming their ceremonies. Your Vermont vacation rental’s Wi-Fi and its large flat screens make connecting to these ceremonies easy.
Take a drive to one of the historic cemeteries throughout the state and have your own private ceremony. The Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery (in the center of the state), is home to over 3,200 veterans buried among its gently rolling hills. Our vacation rentals in Vermont are located throughout the state, and all are close to a historic cemetery or two, where you can have your own private ceremony.
The Vermont Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Sharon usually holds an all-night vigil on Memorial Day eve, and Montpelier is home to the Green Mount Cemetery Soldier’s Lot, a small plot of land donated to the government for the burial of Union troops.
Picnics & Cookouts
It wouldn’t be Memorial Day with a picnic or cookout to start the summer. Grill out on the deck of your vacation rental in Vermont while listening to your favorite patriotic music. Locally sourced quail or ribs will taste greatly barbequed out on the grill!
Or, order take-out from a local restaurant, then head out to one of the many trails where you can hike through alpine forests, enjoy a fantastic mountain view, up rocky mountain trails, and along rushing rivers. If you’re in the Charlotte area, head to Mount Philo State Park with its mountain top picnic area, and enjoy your meal overlooking a spectacular view of the Champlain Valley. Texas Falls Recreation Area, in Hancock, features cascading waterfalls and picnic spots along the trail. And the Stowe Recreation Path offers plenty of picnic spots with scenic views of covered bridges, meadows, and streams along its path.
Memorial Day in Vermont
Have your own parade or ceremony this year, or watch one. Either way, your vacation rental in Vermont will be the perfect spot to rest up after a long hike or long day of binge-watching parades. Still, looking for the perfect Vermont vacation spot for this year’s Memorial Day? Give us a call, we’d love to help!
