Just outside of the Okemo State Forest, Ludlow provides its local residents and visitors with a taste of what Vermont has to offer. Enjoy a dish made with locally sourced, grass-fed beef, such as a roast or a burger topped with Vermont cheddar cheese. For a light bite to eat, stop by one of the town's many cafés or coffee shops, where you can order a sandwich or a bowl of New England clam chowder. During the spring, you can order a dish featuring fiddleheads, a Vermont delicacy. If you're in the mood for a treat, try out a maple-flavored dessert, such as a maple creemee or a scoop of maple walnut ice cream.
