Ludlow is actually a classic Vermont town with an array of quaint shops, restaurants, attractions, church bazaars, summer lawn concerts, country fairs, and community suppers that just beg for visitors to experience them. It is truly a charming New England town.
You can drive to see a covered bridge, go antiquing, visit museums, or search for arts and crafts. Many of the shops in the area feature truly one-of-a-kind unique artisans.
