The Crossroads of Spring Migration in Stowe, Vermont

Destination Hotels & Resorts ~

Spring and mud season is one of Vermont’s under appreciated seasons. On the surface it looks as if the ski resorts are closing and a ride on any unpaved road often becomes something resembling the Monster Truck Mud Bog Showdown. On the other hand, the days are, seductively, growing in length making for heady days of corn skiing, goggle tan, and cold beer in the parking lot with friends new and old. All this takes place against the back drop of a natural community whose own rhythms are changing and transforming into the vibrancy of spring.

Seattle has a few nicknames, “Emerald City” and “Jet City” have been two of the longest running ones, but with its ever expanding technology and food scenes, many locals feel like those names just don’t cut it anymore.

Elevate Your Conference With Unique Meeting Breaks

Paradise Point ~

Meeting breaks have long been one of most neglected portions of the conference planning process. They just can’t compete with the Amazing Race-style thrills of teambuilding or exciting “cirque acrobats or Polynesian fire-breathers” predicaments of awards night banquets. But now, the meeting break is finally making a comeback from being the sad coffee-and-granola-bar station in the corner. To refuel both the body and mind of attendees mid-conference, try adding a unique meeting break idea or theme to your next event.
