Get To Know The Upper Valley's General Stores In This Year’s Valley Quest Super Quest

Jul 14, 2015 01:45PM ● Published by Kirsten Gehlbach

The Upper Valley is home to many quintessentially New England general stores. They are hubs of their communities and bustle with activity and commerce.

This year’s Valley Quest Super Quest includes 12 local general stores and their historic downtown areas. Dine, shop, explore, learn—and find the hidden word! Collect all the words, unscramble the letters, and solve the puzzle to earn a special patch and be entered in a grand-prize drawing.

There are so many wonderful general stores in the Upper Valley that Vital Communities could not include them all, but post your favorites on the Vital Communities’ Facebook page to share your picks with other questers. Sign up a team and download the clues to solve the puzzle at vitalcommunities.org/valleyquest/superquest.

Other Quests This Summer

The Quest of the Month for July is the Plainfield Village Quest. Start at the Plainfield Cemetery and explore the town; enjoy the Maxfield Parrish views. Stop at Edgewater Farm to solve the riddle for the Upper Valley Farms Super Quest.

The August Quest of the Month is Village Green E in Woodstock, Vermont. Bring a pencil and paper to find the magic number. Complete the quest and visit the Change the World Kids root cellar.

Valley Quest is an award-winning, place-based educational program that uses treasure hunts to celebrate community, nature, history, cultural sites, stories, and special places.
