The town of Wallingford is located in the valley of Otter Creek, nestled between the Taconic and Green Mountain Ranges, with Route 7 running through town. Conveniently located between Rutland and Manchester, Wallingford’s charm makes passerby’s want to stop and explore.
Wallingford’s main street is idyllic, with several businesses, shops, and restaurants lining the street. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in the early 1980s. Stop by Handmade in Vermont, located in the stone building on Main Street. Owned by the White Rocks Land Trust and operated by a consortium of Vermont artists, the store is a must-see during your visit to town. Looking for the perfect gift? A visit to The Sparkle Barn is just what you need. The shop features handcrafted art and one-of-a-kind gifts for all ages. We promise, it doesn’t get more charming than this.
Hungry? Grab a bite to eat at Sal’s, the Main Street Café, or the Victorian Inn.
Those looking to get outside and connect with nature have found just the place. From Wallingford, you can access the Long Trail, the Appalachian Trail, and White Rocks National Recreation Area. This 4-mile moderate hike is an out-and-back trail that features a waterfall. White Rocks offers breathtaking views of the valley and the mountains.
Looking to experience a piece of history? The town of Wallingford is where Paul Harris, founder of Rotary International, grew up. Wallingford Memorial Rotary continues on today, honoring Harris’ legacy.
Just up the road on Route 140 sits the town of Tinmouth. The Town is a quaint, pastoral community nestled in the Taconic Mountain Ranges. In the warmer months, take a drive, and stop by their well-loved snack bar.
