Celebrate President's Day in Calvin Coolidge State Park

Did you know that Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as the 30th President of the United States by his father, in his boyhood home of Plymouth Notch, Vermont on August 3, 1923?

Why not spend today, President's Day, in a state park named after one, Coolidge State Park? While you're there, enjoy great winter hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing. Click here for a winter trail map.

After taking in beautiful views and fresh air, travel a short ways down the road to Calvin Coolidge Historic Site where you can fill up on stories about President Coolidge and other historic facts.

President Coolidge once gave a speech while in Vermont saying,

"I love Vermont
because of her hills and valleys,
her scenery and invigorating climate,
but most of all because
of her indomitable people.
They are a race of pioneers who have almost
beggared themselves to serve others.
If the spirit of liberty should vanish
in other parts of the union
and support of our institutions should languish,
it could all be replenished from the
generous store held by the people of
this brave little state of Vermont"


Happy President's Day!
