We're planning a trip to explore Montreal, Quebec City and Vermont, hoping to catch the fall foliage change. We have 2-3 weeks for the trip. We'd sure appreciate suggestions (more/less days, towns/places to see, alternate routes, etc.) as we sketch out the details.
When should we start the trip to hopefully hit the color change in full glory at sometime during the trip?
Please comment on our first draft itinerary. Thanks for your insights!
