For the widest variety of shops, the quaint mountain town of Stowe is your best bet, according to Forbes Travel Guide editors. Main Street is the central artery through town, and you can find a slew of fine art galleries featuring works by local artists. Stop into Main Street’s Laughing Moon Chocolates for a sweet treat, and then head to nearby Mountain Road, where Stowe Craft & Design has locally made jewelry, sculpture and ceramics. The charming streets of Stowe have even more to offer, from ski, fish and bike outfitters to kitchen shops and upscale pet stores. Clotheshorses might not find much here — if you’re on the hunt for hipper duds, head to Church Street Marketplace in downtown Burlington.
