Vermont's second-largest city (after Burlington) makes a good stop if you need city services.



The railroads brought prosperity to Rutland VT in the 19th century, taking the marble from nearby quarries to the world outside.

Today the city is the commercial and transportation hub of central Vermont, a good place to find a hotel, restaurant, shop or trade, but there's not a lot to keep the casual visitor.

The Chaffee Center for the Visual Arts (also known as the Chaffee Art Center), at 16 South Main Street, may have an exhibit of interest, and the Vermont State Fair brings Rutland to life every September.

The Norman Rockwell Museum of Vermont is in Rutland, with a collection of the artist's work. (There's more at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge MA.)

On New Year's Eve, Rutland has a First Night celebration. More...

Otherwise, Rutland is a transportation center and the go-to place for nearby central Vermont towns such as Dorset, Killington, Middlebury and Woodstock.
