I've spent tons of time on this, but still haven't really narrowed down even a loose itinerary, so any help would be very much appreciated.
We have about 2 weeks for this holiday. We plan on spending the first 2 or 3 nights around Lake Placid, and then heading into Vermont for the rest of our time. We may spend our last night somewhere in New York state as well, on our way home. I'm not booking anything ahead of time. We'll just kind of go where ever we go. I'm thinking about taking the ferry between Charlotte and Essex, just for the experience.
We are planning to camp as much as possible. If the weather cooperates it'll be every night. Need to keep this vacation as cheap as possible.
We'd like to do some hiking, as well as some biking (not serious mountain biking though, but preferably not on roads much). We also like exploring new towns and places.
I was thinking about Mount Ascutney State Park for another couple of nights too. There are lots of nice looking parks. We prefer quiet and secluded campsites, but don't want to have to hike our gear in very far, if at all.
Other things of interest I'm thinking of fitting in are: Ben and Jerry's factory tour; Dog Mountain if we're in the area; King Arthur Flour Bakery and Cafe (odd choice, but if we're near there we'll likely go); Billing's Farm and Museum; checking out the town of Woodstock.
I realize this post is very disjointed, and I apologize for that. It just seems to be the way the planning is going for this trip.
And.. we leave September 6 so will likely arrive in Vermont around the 9th.
