The Vermont Attractions Association (VAA) announces the acceptance of two new members for 2016 that exemplify the qualities of a premier Vermont attraction under the Association’s criteria. The newest attractions qualifying for membership in VAA are Maple Grove Farms of Vermont in St. Johnsbury, and Weston Playhouse Theatre Company in Weston.
Visit Maple Grove Farms’ Sugarhouse Maple Museum and learn about the making of pure maple syrup. Then visit their Red Roof gift Shop to view a video about the history of Maple Grove Farms, the world’s oldest and largest maple candy factory and largest packer of pure maple syrup in the USA.
As Vermont’s longest-running professional theatre, Weston Playhouse celebrates the classics and nurtures the new with a multi-stage summer season of rollicking musicals, family-friendly productions, classic plays and groundbreaking new works. Come early for dinner, stay for Cabaret.
The VAA, which is managed by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, was founded in 1957, and represents about 70 of Vermont’s finest family destinations. Focusing on education as a component of the visitor experience, VAA members meet high standards while offering unusual experiences in the areas of agricultural tourism, art, excursions, galleries, guided tours, history, museums, recreation, shopping, and specialty foods.
