Best place to run away from the crowds
When Vermonts Route 100 is jammed with cars and Stowes restaurants are packed with people, you can be blissfully working off your workday stress with all sorts mof athletics at Craftsbury Outdoor Center (802-586-7767, www.craftsbury.com
) in sleepy Craftsbury, about 45 minutes
farther north. The center offers hiking and running trails, biking, and yoga, but its most appealing options are sculling, canoeing, and kayaking, because they let you see the trees blazing oranges and reds reflected in the mirror of Great Hosmer Pond. Lodging starts at $75 a night.
