Win a Weekend Getaway in Vermont!

Enter to win an all expenses paid Weekend Getaway for Two in Vermont!

Three nights and four days at the historic, luxury Equinox Resort in glorious Manchester, Vermont. The countryside is pure Vermont—rolling meadows, covered bridges and soft round mountains. Indulge in a maple sugar massage at the spa or just sit by one of the many giant fireplaces and enjoy the view. Hiking, horseback riding leaf peeping or skiing —you will have a blast.  You’ll enjoy dinner at the Downtown Grocery in Ludlow with Chef Rogan and his wife Abby —passionate chefs cooking local, seasonal— really good food. And breakfast one morning at Up For Breakfast where you will climb the steps and settle in for a cozy homemade breakfast with Bonnie and all the locals who know where to eat. This is Vermont just as you have always imagined it.
