White Rocks National Recreation Area
White Rocks Picnic Rd

However, it is recommended that you must bring some insect repellent lotion to deter bugs.

Otter creek is one place that a family can visit for their Wallingford travel. The whole family can immerse themselves in bird watching, since the place is home to a variety of songbirds and ospreys. The family can also go on a fishing trip for trout. The squeals and laughter of your young ones as they reel in their catch will linger in your memory.
Boy and the Boot Statue
9W Main St.
Wallingford, VT 05773
The Boy and the Boot statue happens to be a symbolic pride of the town of Wallingford. The statue is enshrouded in mystery because it was meant to be a statue in memory of someone’s father, a certain Arnold Young. However, other similar statues in neighboring towns have been seen and even in memory of someone who wasn’t even dead yet. The statue of the boy carrying a boot with water arcing out of its boot tip hole can be seen in daylight hours but it is in storage in the months of December to March.
