Bennington Welcome Center:
Bennington, VT

We wanted to get home from Vermont in time for dinner, so we left before lunch. After driving a little while, we wanted to find somewhere on the way to stop for lunch. When the Bennington Welcome Center showed up practically on our route we decided to stop there. We were in for a pleasant surprise. The Welcome center is just off the highway (VT-279). It is a rest area with picnic tables and Vermont style chairs near the building and grassy lawn facing the 306 foot Bennington Battle Monument (Commemorating the Bennington Battle during the Revolutionary War).

The interior of the Welcome Center is light, airy, and even homey with the log cabin walls inside. The Welcome Center was clean and well-kept. There are loads of brochures and informative booklets there. The staff was extremely friendly and there is even a coffee and tea station which offers free hot drinks for visitors (donations are welcome).

The Welcome Center is accessible from Route 279 East, Route 279 West and from Route 7 South.

Access from Route 7 North is available via Route 7A West to Route 279 East.

If you travel to Vermont from New York or to New York from Vermont the Bennington Welcome Center is a great place to stop.
