Ideas for Day Trip to Vermont from Lenox MA

My wife and I are coming to the Berkshires 6/28 - 7/4 for our 25th anniversary. Wahoo! We are staying the entire time in Lenox as a home base. But we would like to do a day trip to Vermont - shopping, eating etc. Any suggestions on places and things to do for this Vermont day trip?

Thanks!

Arlington/Dorset area for antiquing and the like, or Manchester for outlet shopping.

Agree with the previous post. While In Manchester, visit "Hildene" home of Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abe, a Historic mansion with lovely gardens and views.

Add Bennington (which is en route to the other 3 towns mentioned) to the list. You will find covered bridges, the burial place of Robert Frost, Bennington Museum with large collection of Grandma Moses paintings,and the Bennington Battle Monument, which commemorates a Revolutionary Battle, this a 30 story obelisk, with views from atop. Bennington also has a classic New England white church on a green and Bennington Potters, a shop with lots of interesting items in an interesting pair of buildings.

Almost identical to what I wrote the OP in the Ma forum.

We're doing the same as you, and doing a day trip to see the covered bridges. I come back on the 11th, (leaving June 1st) so I'll try to post quickly, or maybe while I'm even there to give you more ideas after I've done it!
