Foodie Road Trip to Vermont (Daily Candy)

You're a New Englander, so you either love the cold or appreciate a solid apres-ski. Make an escape to snowy Vermont where mountain fun is now rivaled by a stellar locavore dining scene. Stowe Mountain Resort The mountain got a new lodge; check it out over a pint of Wolaver's organic pale ale at Great Room Bar & Grill, then trudge over to Solstice at the Stowe Mountain Lodge for a locally focused meal from chef Sean Buchanan, who sources his beef, cheese, and butter from Vermont farms. Or head down the hill for a fresh-brewed pint at The Alchemist in Waterbury followed by a bite from the ever-changing, local menu at Hen of the Wood. (Daily Candy Boston)
