Concierge.com's insider take:

Bring your walking shoes. This 45-acre marquee Vermont attraction—founded by the late Electra Havemeyer Webb in 1947—includes 150,000 works of art housed in 39 buildings, the 220-foot steamboat Ticonderoga, a prefab Kalkin House (made from three transoceanic shipping containers), an 1871 lighthouse, and a two-lane covered bridge. The collections range from 4,000 tiny circus figures to Monet paintings to a 1950s kitchen. Aim to visit in mid-May, when hundreds of lilac bushes are in bloom, or bring a picnic to one of the summer concerts held on the splendid, rolling green, with the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain as a backdrop. Willie Nelson, Michael Franti, and Melissa Etheridge have all played here.

Open daily 10 am to 5 pm, mid-May to late October.
