Quechee is a small town centered around Quechee Gorge in Southern Vermont. Although the gorge was the original attraction, a small resort town has now popped up around it.

Quechee Gorge

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

Despite being rural, Quechee is shockingly close to some (relatively) major population centers in Vermont.

By car[edit]

Quechee is located along US-4 near White River Junction and between that town and Rutland.

By train[edit]

The nearest Amtrak station is in White River Junction, though there's another one in Rutland, too. You'll be on your own for getting to Quechee itself, however.
