#1 Shelburne Museum

From weathervanes, quilts and American art to transplanted 1950s-era homes, a railroad station and a fully outfitted steamboat, the Shelburne Museum really does have a little of everything on display. Nearly 40 buildings, filled with various exhibits, span the museum's 45 acres. There's even a respectable collection of impressionist paintings, featuring the works of Degas, Cassatt, Manet and Monet.

Recent visitors were equally impressed with the museum's artifacts as they were with its grounds. You can spend hours learning about the exquisite displays and buildings, but also mosey along the grounds simply taking in the beautiful scenery.
