Bennington, Vermont: It’s all here!

History, colleges, cafés, world-class golf, an acclaimed healthcare center. Mountains, museums, innovative industries, and a vibrant arts scene. The view from the 306-foot-tall Bennington Monument, built to commemorate the Patriot victory at the Battle of Bennington. A lively downtown, home of Bennington Potters and other one-of-a-kind enterprises. The classic New England villages of Old Bennington, home of Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys, and North Bennington (one-way traffic on covered bridges, please!) Distinctive places to stay, to eat — and to get married. Bennington has it all!

Modern-day Bennington is teeming with outdoor enthusiasts, history buffs, budding entrepreneurs, and free-spirited artists — all coming together to fashion a lively community.

The SMU National Center for Arts Research has consistently hailed Bennington in its top-ten most vibrant arts communities. This is an honor we wear proudly as their Arts Vibrancy Index tracks more than 900 communities in the U.S.

And Yankee Magazine gets us too.

“Bennington, a jumble of artsy shops and cafés that have a jittery beat-poet buzz, spiced up with some highly regarded museums”
