Equinox Hotel and marble sidewalks in Manchester, VT

Manchester, VT is divided in half with the nice hotels up the hill in Manchester Village and the tragic ones down by the outlets. There is a sidewalk made of marble that connects the two villages and it is an easy walk down to the outlets but not a super fun walk to make in reverse because the hill is surprisingly steep.
