The temps are dropping fast in Vermont which means winter is just around the corner. But first, Fall. The colors, the apple cider (and cider donuts!), and family-friendly events at mountain resorts across the state. Here are a few we’ve gathered. For an extra special day, pair one with a hike at your favorite resort.
Fall is the best time for easy Vermont hikes, especially with kids. The bright foliage and cooler weather make it an ideal time to climb the Green Mountains and enjoy incredible views.
Vermont apple picking season is here in the Green Mountain State. Orchards around the state are ripe with McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Empire, and heirloom varieties that are ready for pick-your-own Vermont apple picking.
Vermont’s fall foliage season is all about scenic drives, apple picking, hiking and exploring small towns. You can’t go wrong wherever you are in Vermont this time of year.

The Bollywood music industry comprises original soundtrack albums that feature plot-specific songs composed especially for a film. Among the most unusual features of this industry are playback singers that record the songs before filming and actors that lip-sync to these songs on screen to make it appear as if the characters themselves are singing. I would like to elaborate on the origin and purpose of music in Hindi cinema and the unique role that playback singers perform in this art form.

DORSET — So, seriously, of all the terrific young playwrights in America today, the one I want to sit down on my back deck and have a beer with is Kate Hamill.
