Wilmington is popular for dining, shopping (especially antiques and handicrafts) and lodging for visitors to the Mount Snow Resort area. The village is on Route 9, the road between Brattleboro and Bennington, and about 140 mi/230 km south of Burlington.
In the center of Wilmington you'll find the Memorial Hall Center for the Arts and its neighbor, the Crafts Inn. Both buildings date from 1902 and are nicely restored examples of the Dutch colonial style. To get a sense of the village's history, take a peek at the walls of Memorial Hall, which are decked with portraits of its founders and other important figures in its history. Or attend a concert or play there during the summer, when the center hosts its arts series.
Mount Snow Resort is especially popular among New Yorkers (it's only about 200 mi/320 km from Manhattan) and Bostonians (a mere 127 mi/204 km away). There are more than 100 ski trails on four separate peaks to choose from—expert runs on the steep North Face will challenge the advanced skier, and novice skiers can enjoy wide trails on the sunny side of the mountain.
The resort also caters to families by offering several ski and snowboarding camps and other programs for kids.
