Summer days at this latitude are extra long, which allows more time for hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, boating, rock climbing, swimming, and horseback riding. For something a little different, try hang gliding off Burke Mountain, sailing on Crystal Lake, or scuba diving in the clear, deep waters of Lake Willoughby. Trap and skeet shooting and archery are available at several area ranges. Golfers will find country clubs in nearby St. Johnsbury and Newport, but don't miss Granddad's Invitational, a small course in Newark carved out of a pasture. Also popular are county fairs, craft shows, strawberry festivals, and farmers' markets-or try one of the pick-your-own farms for the freshest taste of Vermont.
