About Us is the official tourism marketing site of the Town of Bennington. We in the Bennington community know that our town and surrounding landscape is a truly special place. We hope this site and its corresponding promotional efforts will help others discover what we already know to be true: VermontBeginsHere.

The Town of Bennington is tucked into the Southwest corner of Vermont in the Green Mountains. Just over 3 hours north of NYC and 3 hours northwest of Boston, Bennington is perched perfectly for a weekend getaway or for that second home in Vermont.

For Welcome Center information, contact us.

If you would like to advertise , update or add a listing, we would love to hear from you.
