Traveling a long distance?

  • The St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce has a business directory, community calendar and lots of tips for places to stay, eat and visit.
  • There are many places to grab a coffee or dine in the area: Cafe Gatto Nero, Eastern & Main Deli, The Wine Gate, and Kingdom Taproom are all within walking distance!
  • If you've brought your lunch with you, we highly recommend our Museum's grassy courtyard. Accessible through the East Entrance of the building, our courtyard is complete with picnic tables and plenty of shade.

You don't have to say goodbye!
