52 Weekend Getaways: Plymouth, VT

Cheese wizard.

Cheddar may get all the hype, but it’s only a tiny slice of what’s represented along Vermont’s Cheese Trail. The 280-mile loop spans the state, and is studded with farmsteads offering tours. (Recent noteworthy expansions of the trail are at Grafton Village and Jasper Hill Farm.) A weekend of roaming will keep you sated with everything from organic ricotta salatas to raw-milk blues. And, of course, glorious cheddar. vtcheese.com.
