I’m really excited to interview Taraleigh Weathers of Rocking Life about Stowe, Vermont. Taraleigh’s tips for the best things to do in Stowe are awesome because she owns a barn and farmhouse retreat center called This Wonderful Place in the city. She loves walking along the river and enjoying the mountain views, listening to live local music, and grabbing a beer from one of the best breweries in the nation.
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out Go Stowe, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.

Who is Taraleigh Weathers?
Most of the things that Taraleigh does revolve around her desire to see as much live music as she can. Live music is what makes her tick which is why she works with people who are in love with live music and want to tune into their best selves. She loves sharing all the tips and tricks that she has picked over the past 42 years that made her into the ageless jam queen that she is.
Because every single day is a gift and not just a show day! Taraleigh literally wrote the book about it – How to Rock Your Life: Maintain the Magic of Live Music in Your Everyday Experience (Amazon referral link).
Because of her desire to maintain the magic of live music in her everyday experience, Taraleigh chose to create and produce live music retreats with a healthy twist. She runs a retreat center in Vermont with her husband called This Wonderful Place where we will put on our own retreats and events as well as host others. With the training and schooling she received, Taraleigh is skilled at using her unicorn magic to guide you to rock your most healthy life with her blog and online coaching programs.
