Where to Propose in Vermont
Many people think of Vermont as a little slice of paradise. The Green Mountain State has earned its idyllic reputation: Its landscape is green and filled with beautiful places to enjoy nature. The air and water are clean, crime is low, and residents are healthy. If you’re planning a proposal to a nature lover, Vermont is the place to do it.
Proposing Outdoors in Vermont
Vermont has a myriad of options for a gorgeous outdoor proposal. In the winter, reserve ski passes at a resort like Killington or Mount Snow and arrange to stay in the area. There are typically a variety of options in the area, so choose whether you’d prefer a grand hotel, a cozy room with a kitchenette, a condo, or an inn. Zip the box containing her diamond cluster ring securely into your jacket, then propose either on the ski lift or at the bottom of the hill you’ve just skied down together. With either option, you’ll enjoy a beautiful snowy backdrop and a feeling of exhilaration.
During milder seasons, plan a hike with your lady that culminates in a breathtaking view. The Sunset Ridge Trail, for example, leads you up a rocky ridge to Mount Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont. If you’d like to camp, Gifford Woods State Park is known for its fall foliage, and it offers lodging options that include cabins, lean-tos, and sites for trailers or tents. Pop the question on a mountaintop, or while sitting by the fire at your campsite.
Lake Champlain has plenty to offer when you’re planning to propose. Rent a boat from Westport Marina, Waterfront Boat Rentals, or another local company and cruise around the lovely lake with your sweetheart. Alburg Dunes State Park has a remote white sand beach with crystal clear water, with picnic tables and grills available. When she’s not looking, write, “Will you marry me?” in the sand.
Villages such as Manchester or Grafton are fun to explore together. Manchester is a quaint little town with a white steeple church and charming inns. Outdoor adventures are nearby, whether its canoeing on the Battenkill River or hiking through Merrick Forest and Prospect Rock. Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center is the perfect spot for sports, whether it’s cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and tubing in the winter or canoeing, biking, and swimming in the summer.
