It's high time...for a road trip!

Summer road trip!

It's time to hop in your car, on your bicycle or motorcycle, or take a walk or run into White River Junction, VT. This town is hopping hot and blossoming with all kind of new shops and eateries. Fly into W. Lebanon's airport if you have the means and rent a car. But get here however you can! 

River City, VT. At the intersections of Interstates 89 and 91. Head into downtown, about 2 miles from the exit ramps.

Breaking news...Bostonians are calling WRJ "Cambridge on the Connecticut. Our NYC friends call it "The Brooklyn of Vermont." Around here, we call it "River City." It's got art on all levels, from theater, to music, to fine art, to craft, to great eateries and fine dining establishments.  It even come with its own array of comics in the Center for Cartoon Studies with its MFA program in "sequential art." It's "The Cartoon School," for short.

This says it all!

More breaking news...River Roost Brewery in WRJ has some of the finest ales on tap anywhere in the world. Mark Babson previously brewed for Magic Hat. Now he gets to use the world-famous water that once launched Catamount Brewery (remember them?) to fame in WRJ. Keep an eye on River Roost, but get here to have a sip or a pint, or a growler to take home as soon as you can. It's worth the trek for any craft beer lover.

Long River Gallery & Gifts. Celebrating more than 25 years of showing art and artisan craft from local artists and artisans.
