I am thinking of taking a weekend trip up from Boston to southern VT. Only plan on staying over Saturday night for a quick getaway. Looking for some scenic foliage drives, antique marts, wineries, etc. I don't want to do too much driving since we will have limited time. Am trying to decide upon staying in Brattleboro and touring towns around there or Bennington since I have heard good things about there, but that seems to be about an hour of additional driving.
Is Bennington worth the extra drive or will I get similar activities in the Brattleboro area? Any recommendations on must see towns/places? I am generally unfamiliar with VT.
