There are some amazing stores that are always there: Northeast Mountain Footwear, The Good Spot, and The Vermont Gift Emporium just to name a few.

Next, we are heading into Downtown Brattleboro. You can spend a full day just here but here are a few of our favorite spots. Sam’s Outfitter is our favorite place to find anything we may need for life outdoors. This family-owned business started back in 1932 and is in its third generation. They have expanded to a total of three department stores with the other two in Keene, NH and Hadley, MA.
Looking for something more unique? Head over to Boomerang, this store has an eclectic mix of new and consigned items. Look closely and you will find some great vintage items here. Their hand-picked items will have something for everyone. Kat found her favorite jean jacket perusing the racks at Boomerang Brattleboro. Across the street, you will find Mocha Joe’s one of our favorite coffee shops in town. Make sure to try the maple latte while you are there.
Did you grow up looking through The Vermont Country Store catalog? Now’s your chance to see one of their stores in person. Their Rockingham location is just a twenty-five-minute drive from Brattleboro North KOA, just head up I-91 North and take exit 6 follow Rt-103 North for 3 miles and you will find it on your left-hand side. Make sure to take a picture under The Kissing Bridge, an adorable, covered bridge right next to the store.
