Our family (two adults, 4 @ 1.5 yrs old boys) plan to drive from Montreal to Boston, through VT and NH (maybe MN) for 4 days, 3 nights, in late Sep. Our general thoughts for stops and visiting are Plattsburgh or Burlington in Lake Champlain, Montpelier, Waterbury for Ben & Jerry's, White mountains and North Conway, and at the end a decent crab meal near Portsmouth, NH. We plan on short hiking at the white mountains for now.
Can anyone recommend few hours hiking routes in this area, or maybe at the Adirondack area? Any recommendations on how to split the days? Attraction for the kids? Also, is accommodation for 100-150$ is too low?
