Julie, Jason and their teams truly love the special places where they do business. As Julie says, “We watch people travel long distances every weekend to experience the life that we are lucky enough live.

 

Below she shares their recommendations of favorite attractions in their area.

 
Burlington
Central to the City of Burlington is the vibrancy of Church Street (think Pearl Street in Boulder), where Von Bargen’s is located. An open air mall with over 100 shops and restaurants, the bricked street is the perfect Vermont destination.

 

Hanover
Known for Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Hanover is a community of people who love and enjoy where they live and who believe in investing in it. The Prouty, an annual cycling (and golf/rowing/walking you name it!) event created to fund cancer research at Dartmouth, is inspiring evidence of the community’s love of the outdoors and their commitment to the community. This year, it raised over 3.2 million dollars. Von Bargen’s is a corporate sponsor and rider (see Julie with daughter Evie below).

Stowe
A popular Vermont destination, Stowe boasts some of the best hiking (Mansfield is Vermont’s tallest peak at 4393 feet), skiing and mountain biking in the northeast. It is also recognized as an epicenter of the craft beer movement, with multiple breweries (including famous Heady Topper) and bars, restaurants and stores catering to the craft beer connoisseur.
