Take a needed break from the college trail

You are on the college-search trail or you are visiting a child in a Vermont college. Do you need a break from all that fun? Oh, yes you do. Add a dollop of relaxation or outdoor fun to your college-related travel with a stay at the Fairbanks Inn in historic St. Johnsbury. Tuck yourself into a room with some nice amenities or spread out in a suite with a kitchenette, then enjoy a swim in the outdoor heated pool or a stroll the landscaped grounds. Before or after the campus visit, stretch your muscles on something other than carrying laundry hampers: get to a near ski area, take a hike on a mountain trail, or take the younger kids for a tasting at Ben & Jerry’s.
