Looking for an artsy spot to stop with your group? Brattleboro, Vermont, blends small-town charm with a thriving downtown arts and culture scene that’s been buzzing for years.

Miles of mountain roads converge in lively and eclectic downtown Brattleboro, where travelers will find cafes, galleries, breweries, live music, museums, boutiques, an Art Deco movie theater, and fantastic dining options. The city hosts special events as well, including the Winter Carnival in February and the Strolling of the Heifers festivities in June.

A new group destination in Brattleboro is the Retreat Farm, which hosts the unique Farm to Ballet event. A dance troupe wearing farm-oriented costumes performs a full ballet on the grass while an orchestra accompanies the dancers with the beautiful music of Vivaldi.

When it’s time to book a hotel, planners can look to the Comfort Inn & Suites Brattleboro, highly rated on Tripadvisor. The hotel features an indoor heated pool, fitness center, free WiFi, and a free breakfast.

Says Amy Manning, general manager of the Comfort Inn, “Whether you’re skiing at one of the nearby mountains, viewing the fall foliage, celebrating one of the area festivals, or looking for one of Vermont’s famous covered bridges, we invite you to come see the true meaning of hospitality while becoming part of our family at the Comfort Inn & Suites Brattleboro.”
