An outdoor enthusiast's dream, Bennington is tucked between two stunning mountain ranges, the Taconics on the west and the Green Mountains on the east. Guests to the area enjoy taking a scenic drive to the summit of Mt. Equinox, spotting wildlife and flowers along the way and marveling over the breathtaking view. The Walloomsac River flows through the community, providing abundant opportunities for recreation. Numerous parks and lakes also afford visitors endless options for exciting outdoor activities.
One of Vermont's oldest and most historic towns, Bennington is rich in cultural history and tradition with a great sense of civic pride. Just nine miles north of Williamstown, MA, Bennington has maintained its small town hospitality, but it's close enough to major markets to provide opportunities and competitiveness. Bennington has a bustling main street full of friendly shops, galleries and cozy restaurants. Guided walking tours are available in the historic district and are an architectural delight. Visitors are drawn to the Bennington Museum to view the world's largest public collection of Grandma Moses paintings and an exceptional collection of Bennington pottery, military artifacts, antique touring cars, furniture, paintings, toys, tools, dolls and much more.
