Since 2007, Seven Days senior multimedia producer Eva Sollberger has been venturing out into the Green Mountain State to film episodes of her award-winning video series, "Stuck in Vermont." Whether visiting maple sugar shacks, touring the yummiest creemee stands or sipping beers along the state’s IPA Highway, the endlessly curious host has a knack for capturing the essence of life here. No wonder her videos have been viewed more than 5 million times on YouTube alone.

If you’re traveling to Vermont to experience the solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, there's no better introduction to the state than a deep dive into the "Stuck" archives. To get you started, Eva created the following springtime playlist.

Episode 662: How Not to Get Stuck in the Mud

Of course, we don’t want you to literally get stuck in Vermont. Since early April is full-on mud season, watch this vid to learn how locals navigate the state’s mucky dirt roads. Eva headed to East Barnard, a small village home to some notoriously soupy roads this time of year, where neighbors look out for each other by sharing road conditions and more in the Village Crier e-newsletter. Safety first!

Episodes 496, 539, 590 and 646: Vermont Creemee Tour

It may be mud season, but it’s also the start of creemee season. Unique to Vermont, a creemee is soft-serve ice cream that’s beloved by locals and visitors alike — so much so that Eva has embarked on four different creemee tours over the years. These videos are required viewing if you want to make a creemee pit  stop while you’re here. See also Creemee Tours 1-3 in episodes 496, 539 and 590.

Episode 528: Sugaring Season at Silloway Maple

Vermont consistently leads the nation in maple production, annually bottling some 2 million gallons of the sweet stuff. Eva visited Silloway Maple, a family-run farm in Randolph Center that dates back to 1942. In addition to producing about 3,000 gallons of syrup a year in a solar-powered sugar shack, the family also runs a dairy farm and a logging operation. You can visit this popular tourist spot year-round.

Episode 354: Beertopia on the IPA Highway

Vermont has more breweries per capita than any other state. While the beer scene has evolved quite a bit since 2014, when Eva drove the state’s so-called IPA Highway, this vid showcases some of our enduringly popular craft breweries and the out-of-towners who travel from far and wide to get a sip of Vermont’s finest. Did someone say beercation?

Episode 439: Burlington Sign Tour

No visit to Vermont is complete without a stroll down Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace. Before you go, watch this video for a fascinating history of Queen City signage — from 1960s neon lettering at Nectar’s nightclub to the Flynn theater’s art-deco marquee. Eva joined two architectural historians and one graphic designer to take a closer look at these markers that surround us and document the passing of time.

Episode 485: Made in Vermont Marketplace

Searching for a groovy Green Mountain State souvenir? Stop by the Made in Vermont Marketplace, taking place at South Burlington’s DoubleTree hotel on April 6 and 7, 2024. More than 100 local makers display the diversity of our creative economy, selling everything from food to furniture to fine crafts. A few years ago, Eva met some of the vendors and tasted some of their sweet Vermont goods.

Episode 443: Vermont Summer Preview

Let’s be honest: April isn’t Vermont’s prettiest season. You’ll probably encounter melting snow or muted landscapes marked with mud. But greener pastures are on the horizon. Look ahead toward a lusher landscape in this vid — in which Eva talks to locals at the Burlington waterfront to hear about their Vermont summer bucket lists — and make plans to come back and visit us again real soon.
