WHY GO >> With the same carved-mahogany bar and lead-glass panels it was built with back in 1895, the New Sheridan Hotel’s historic saloon has good beer on tap, pool tables in the back, and a devoted cadre of local ears to bend about what to see and do around town.

WHY GO >> In a building raised in the 16th century by a local Pueblo tribe, the Alley became a restaurant in 1944 (called El Patio) and was renamed Alley Cantina 15 years ago. Drop by for tamales, pichenotte (a French game similar to pocket billiards), and live music.

WHY GO >> Hang with patrollers, instructors, and locals inside this old barn near the base. The 25 beers on tap include many from Long Trail Brewing Co., the largest microbrewery in Vermont. Try the pulled pork made with Tom’s own sauce.
