We're planning to visit Cabot, Ben & Jerry's & Cold Hollow, and drive along Rt 100 from Boston next weekend (October 12-13). This is our first time visiting VT, and we're hoping to see some nice foliage.
1. For the north bound trip, should we go through I-91 via Hanover to Cabot, or should we take I-89 via Montpelier to Cabot? Which route is more scenic?
3. Should we drive through Rt 73 and connect to Rt 7 & Rt 4 to Woodstock?
Or is it better to stick with Rt 100 and then Rt 107 & Rt 12 to Woodstock?
4. Will the aforementioned highways/routes congested during this time of year? How serious? (want to estimate travel time)
Thank you for your kind help!
