My boyfriend and I are planning a small VT trip on October 14, probably driving up through Brattleboro on I-91, then going up to Burlington on 89 (we'll probably take rt 100 at some point, since I've heard it's so nice!), and then coming back down on Rt 7 through Bennington. It's our first VT trip and we're only spending 3 nights, so I'm not sure if it's a good plan. We'll probably spending a night at Perkinsville, then Burlington and then Shaftsbury. Does anyone have any recommendations, of any kind (like towns or certain attractions)? We're willing to adjust our itinerary, we just want to see the best of Vermont.
Also, can anyone recommend any casual hikes along the way? I'm a big fan of mountain views. :)
