The summer of 2016 has ushered in a variety of new activities, restaurants and shops in Stowe, Vermont. Already in the first few weeks, of what is turning out to be a long run of glorious weather, the town is benefitting from new endeavors from local entrepreneurs. Several long awaited businesses have opened; The Alchemist Brewery and the all new Adventure Center at Spruce Peak. Both are turning out to be big crowd pleasers as well as drawing huge crowds! Make sure you check out both websites for hours and tips on how to make the most of your visit.
Down in the village we are enjoying The Country Store on Main in the renovated Lackey's building and Tap 25 in the renovated Stowe Hardware building. Wendy's Hot Dog stand is operating on the porch of the IC Scoops building providing a great placed for a quick snack in the village. Along the rec path on the patio of the Rusty Nail, Jackwax offers out of this world gourmet snow cones. Up the Mountain Road, Stowe Kitchen & Bath has completed their extensive renovations which include a full kitchen for cooking classes and demonstrations. Decisions boutique has opened next door to Stowe Kitchen, featuring women's fashions and accessories.
The list of new businesses wouldn't be complete without a shout out to some older, new businesses: PK Coffee in the Gale Farm Center and Stowe Cider tasting room in the Red Barn shops. Be on the lookout for additional grand openings in the next couple of weeks as the town welcomes Junior's Italian Restaurant (in the former Gracie's building), Public House on Main in the Lackey's building and Bunyabunya Boutique on the Mountain Road next to the Art Stowe.
It is so exciting to see this whirlwind of new activity around town, bringing great energy and excitement to Stowe, Vermont!
