The smallest and oldest city in Vermont, Vergennes is steeped in history. Because of its proximity to Lake Champlain via Otter Creek, Vergennes became the site of the U.S. Navy shipyard during the War of 1812, which eventually lead to the defeat of the French on Lake Champlain at the end of the war in the mid-19th century. Still to this day, you can see the stunning architecture and features of this original Vermont city as you stroll the streets and enjoy the many retail shops and eateries along the way. Only 25 minutes from Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, 20 minutes from Middlebury, and a few short miles from Lake Champlain, Vergennes sits in an ideal location in Addison County.
Vergennes offers so much for the entire family! Activities throughout the year include Vergennes Day, French Heritage Day, Otter Creek Basin Bash, and the list goes on. Home of the largest Memorial Day parade in the state, Vergennes is packed full of locals and visitors as the city kicks off the summer. With Basin Harbor Golf Club and Resort, the Maritime Museum, and various state parks only minutes away, you are bound to find something for everyone! We promise, Vergennes is sure to be a memorable stop for a day or a lifetime.
