Going to Vermont for first time in June of this year with wife no kids we like nature the lake Champlain in the northwest corner sounds nice green mountain area the gorge etc.Like to see country stores,good home cooking restaurants sugar houses.Also nice scenic drives from one area to another.Haven't made final destination yet to either the coast of New Hampshire or Aracida in Maine. Coming from Ohio passing thru Finger Lakes of New York near the mountain region into state. Any posts from people that have been there or travel there is appreciated

Burlington, Stowe and Woodstock should be on your itinerary. All excellent towns with different character - and all within ~90 min drive of each other. There's tons of info on this forum on each of them. Just do a search (above your post) for 'best things to do Stowe', etc... and you'll get plenty of info to start you off.

Acadia is beautiful, but it's a haul - about 8 hours from Burlington. Love going there, but I don't go unless I've got at least 3-4 nights (more like 4-5) to spend there.

Will add that the finger lakes area is also very nice. Much of the ~8 hr drive from there to Burlington is pleasant, but not particularly scenic. Saratoga Springs is very nice - a good way point for strolling or a meal.

You aren't writing on a blank slate so do a search for the types of places you mentioned. also, check out visitvt.gov.

Without a route, tough to just through out stuff. No point in telling you about the great place in Bennington if you aren't going further south than Burlington.

I'd suggest driving from the finger lakes to Saratoga Springs, then you can decide to go north or stay south. Burlington & Stowe are in the northern 1/3 of the state, Woodstock is roughly in the middle. If you go north, I-89 is a fast and rather scenic drive across the state (and back south).

Re: the coast, if you have at least 3-4 nights to spend in Acadia and aren't burnt out from driving, that's a good option. Otherwise, hit the coast of NH and southern Maine to get your coastal town fix. That'll save you 3-4 hrs' drive each way vs. Acadia.
