You'd have to be a sap not to like maple syrup. The Green
Mountain state produced nearly 2 million gallons of the
sticky stuff in 2016. That's 47 percent of all the maple syrup
made in the United States. (Eighty percent of what we pour
comes from Canada.)
It's no surprise that Vermont's annual Maple Festival
in late April ranks as one of the state's top tourism events.
Find it in St. Albans, north of Burlington near Lake
Champlain. Enjoy its vast antique show, tap your toes
at the Fiddler's Variety Show, or have a sip at the Maple
Beverage Tasting event. Dig into maple barbecue, and of
course, there's an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast with
light, fluffy flapjacks and gallons of maple syrup. To learn
