VERMONT: An Explorer’s Guide 13th edition launched
Vermont’s premier travel guidebook, VERMONT: An Explorer’s Guide, was published August 1 and the guidebook will be on sale to the general public September 1.
As trends continue to rise in “staycations” with Vermonters spending more leisure time close to home and enjoying all the Green Mountains have to offer, the authors hope to spread the website: www.vermontexplorersguide.com as a tool for Vermonters to share with local stores and shops and encourage them to carry the book. Book ordering information for individuals and stores can be found at the website. An Author’s Picks Blog is also featured.
