A quaint store tucked into scenic Vermont and filled with old-fashioned awesomeness, The Vermont Country Store is a must-visit.

When I was researching things to do on our Spring Break trip to Vermont (and also when I asked for recommendations via Twitter and facebook), many people mentioned The Vermont Country Store, so it got quickly added to our list.

It was interesting to see how many of our local friends and family knew about this store, which has two locations, and meanwhile I was none the wiser.

During our week in Vermont, we ended up staying in three different hotels, traversing all over the state, and each time we headed off in a new direction, the stores’ locations all ended up being hours away from wherever we were.

Vermont is big, what can I say?

But on our last stop, I ended up getting us close enough to the Rockingham location.

Well, thirty minutes out of the way, but that was as good as it was going to get.

And once we pulled in, we knew it was worth it.

First of all, I mean, really with this Covered Kissing Bridge.

Once we stepped inside the store, it was like going back in time and revisiting a million things you have loved over the years.

Originally opened in 1946, it is modeled after old-fashioned General Stores of yesteryear.

Every kind of candy you grew up with (bagged and priced on the honor system).
