The Avenue of States is a major attraction at the BigE each year. Today we will have audio tours that you can download to listen to as you walk through the two states highlighted today. Go to CruiseWithBruce.com for links to the tours that you can listen to about the Vermont and Maine Buildings. "The Avenue's third addition appeared in 1929 with the construction of the Vermont Building, a Georgian structure that boasts marble corners, windowsills and columns, at a cost of more than $60,500. In Vermont, you can check out clothing that will keep you looking sharp in all seasons, breathe in the fragrances of candles and coffee beans or tempt your tastebuds with fresh apple pie and cheddar cheese - two delicious reasons to visit the Green Mountain State. From ski vacations to maple syrup and gourmet ice cream, the Vermont Building offers something for everyone." - "Maine became the next state after Massachusetts to erect a building along the Avenue. The dignified colonial structure was built in 1925 at a cost of $50,000. Just a short walk from Massachusetts and located directly behind the clock tower, the building features local food and products and a wealth of vacation information about this beautiful northeastern-most state. You'll have a chance to try Maine's famous blueberries, smoked salmon, devour a Maine baked potato with all the fixin's, a Maine lobster roll or a "Wicked" Whoopie Pie. The public can participate in special Maine Day activities on Oct. 2 showcasing the Pine Tree State. Information on hunting, fishing, camping, snowmobiling and skiing is also available in the building."
