Visiting Vermont

When planning activities for yourself in conjunction with the 2018 ALARA World Congress, keep in mind that Northfield, the home of Norwich University, is centrally located in Vermont. Excursions in any direction are within a comfortable driving distance.


Within a one to one-and-one-half hour radius you can be in Burlington to the northwest, St. Johnsbury to the northeast, Hanover/Lebanon, NH to the southeast, or Rutland to the southwest. Northfield is also just over an hour from Norwich, Vermont, the original home of Norwich University.

Vermont's capitol, the City of Montpelier, has the distinction of being the smallest state capitol in the United States with a population of just over 8,000 people.  It is a small town with big city amenities including a lively arts and music scene  and great restaurants, due in large part to the presence of the New England Culinary Institute.  Montpelier is also home to the Vermont History Museum.

Transportation to any of these sites is entirely up to you.
