I am really looking forward to my first trip to Vermont in early September. Nights 8-9 are the VT portion.
I enjoy beautiful scenery, museums, quaint towns. I know this itinerary is quicker than most people would like, but I like a fairly fast pace. A few questions... I after spending the night in Burlington, I was going to head down 100 thru Waitsfield, Grafton. But I was wondering if 125 is worthwile... and would you recommend ethan allen highway instead of 100?
