Need some suggestions with Vermont part of our trip. My husband and I are travelling with our two kids - 15 y. old son and 13 y.old daughter. We will be driving on July 28th from Hartford Ct. I'd like to briefly stop in Northfield, Ma and Amherst before we get to Brattleboro. Maybe we'll have lunch there (any suggestions?).
From Brattleboro, I thought , we should get on rt 100 and drive to Woodstock stopping along the way in different towns. Is it a good idea? I am really interested in checking out some farms (organic food, artisan cheese, etc). The main purpose of this trip is to see new places and get a feel of New England.
Do you think I am trying to pack too much in one day from Hartford to Woodstock?
Should we stay one night in Woodstock and one night in Stowe? Or 2 night in Woodstock?
All in all we have 5 days/nights before we need to be in Boston.
Since we are so close to Montreal would it be a good idea to visit it for a day? (I don't know when we will be in the vicinity again). Or is it better to head to New Hampshire and spend 2-3 nights there?
Thank you for your help. You guys are great!
