Crafstsbury May Join Vermont's Byway Program
A tourism association in the Northeast Kingdom wants the town of Craftsbury to become a scenic byway destination for tourists.
Vermont's designated byways range from 30 to 400 miles long and they include historic sites and recreational opportunities. They were established from the ground up as part of the National Byway program, funded through the Federal Highway Administration.
Now, the Northeast Kingdom Travel & Tourism Association has asked Craftsbury's Select Board to join the network of byways to encourage tourists to get off the interstate highway and experience Vermont's Northeast Kingdom on secondary roads.
The Tourism Association says it will need town officials in Craftsbury to commit to the program by the first week of August.
