Skiing is the heart of Vermont's tourism industry, and probably the most popular of all things to do in Vermont. Vermont is home to many top-class ski resorts, including Stowe, Killington, Okemo and Stratton. The favorite of all Vermont attractions is the Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory in Waterbury. Shelburne Farms and the nearby Shelburne Museum are must-do tourist attractions in Vermont. Summer is the best time to visit the Shelburne Museum, when it is warm enough to stroll through its extensive gardens and see some of the historic Vermont buildings.
