We will have 8 full days Oct 9-16 staying in a farm in Central Vermont and would like suggestions on itinerary. Breakfast is served and dinner also at 6pm each day. Our plan is to day trips to see as much as possible in all of Vermont and most of New Hampshire as well. We would like to drive the Rangeley Lakes scenic byways in Maine and wonder if we can do this in a day if we leave real early and still comes back to dinner at Rochester at 6pm. There are a lot of places to see and I have gathered a lot of information including from TripAdvisor sometime ago. Now I think that may be I am too aggressive and try to see too many places even though we do have 8 full days. The four of us are all active retirees and would like to enjoy our drive in a rental Jeep Cherokee, stop anywhere worthwhile to sightsee, walk around a bit, do some easy hiking trails if possible, have a great lunch and take time for some nice photo opportunity. Both of the ladies also like to cook and bake abd wonder if there is anything in the region that thet should stop by and see, may be even attend a cooking class. Now I would like to hear from some of you about how to realistically plan a 8 day itinerary on this trip. Thanks so much.
