My wife and I are planning a trip to Vermont in October but we can't decide on West Dover/Proctorsville or Burlington. When I did my initial research, I was planning for Burlington; however, there are currently Groupons for West Dover and Proctorsville so we were thinking about getting those.
Mainly, we want to see the foliage and enjoy the outdoors, but also do some shopping and dining.
We are coming from the D.C. area so long car rides while we are in VT are OK but not preferable. We like to bike/walk/hike so those would probably be our preferred methods of travel once in VT.
We are open to museums, wineries, horseback riding, and pretty much anything else.
Does anyone have any good insight on where we should go based on the above information?
