If you want to see New England as you imagine, go to Vermont.
"More than any American state, Vermont has worked to preserve those qualities that make it unique, such as scenic countryside, lively small towns, historic streetscapes, and local businesses."
National Geographic Traveler
Seeking an authentic Vermont experience? You are invited to join over 4,000 members of the 251 Club in exploring the state while visiting its 251 towns and cities.
Travel at your own pace, in a season or in a lifetime, by car, on foot, or whatever conveyance suits your style. There are no rules, no records to keep, no requirements. The expectation is that you will be inventive and adventurous in following the road less traveled to Vermont's little know corners, as well as its more popular destinations.
One membership covers everyone in your household. It entitles you to a Personal Profile Page on this website where you can track your progress and a Public Page Link to send to other members and non-members alike who may be interested in your travel experiences.
Additional benefits include a subscription to The Wayfarer, the club newsletter published three times a year, and an invitation to share your experiences with fellow members at an annual full luncheon meeting.
Please see the JOIN page for more information and a membership application form. We hope to hear from you.
|We read about the 251 Club in the Travel section of the Boston Globe and made our first trip to Vermont from our home in Boston on October 1, 2006. The day started in Vernon and ended in Bridgewater where we toasted each other with Long Trail drafts. Over the nearly 6 years it took us to complete the quest, we lived in Massachusetts, Alabama, and New York. Because of the 251 Club we LOVE Vermont and have decided to make it our retirement home in a few years!
In addition to the 251 towns, we also visited the three gores and Warner's Grant. It would take a much longer letter to begin to describe all the serendipitous 251 Club "magic" we experienced, such as arriving in Plymouth on the one winter day that the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site is open to the public and being treated to a sleigh ride (the first ever for Rebecca who is from the South).
We are so appreciative of having our eyes opened to this simple but wonderful way of exploring a beloved state. Now to start again. . .
