itenerary help

Visiting burlington in agust. Flying in from Las vegas. Will we need car or is it easy to get around. Also, how far is woodstock from burlington? We would like to travel there but wondered if it was a short day trip or a place where we would need to stay over and mabey end our trip there. Thanx

Public transport in Vermont is spotty. If you are in Burlington for a couple of days, you clould take taxis and busses -- but it would be hard.

Rent a car and you could drive down to Woodstock (a 1.5 to 2 hour drive.)

Also, be sure to drive out to the Lake Champlain Islands. They are heavenly in the summer.

Everything is in Vermont within an easy days drive, so first thing to do after you get off the plane is rent a car. When we say "you can't get there from here" in Vermont what we mean is, we don't have public tranportation.

Woodstock would make for a lovely day trip from Burlington. I would like to recomend getting there using a route other than the interstate however. Try taking Route 2 east out of Burlington into Waterbury where you can pick up Route 100 south [short ride north of here on 100 will take you to Ben & Jerry's], this route will wind dow through our mountains past a wonderful water fall, and through some tiny villages. Pick up Route 4 East and head over to Woodstock. There is a great country store in Birdgewater,VT that's worth the stop, and this route will take you past the Catamount Brewery, which is a nice place for lunch.

Thank you vtmom13 That was helpful, sounds like there is no getting around renting a car. It sounds best if we start our trip in Burlington and then spend a couple of days in woodstock. With a two hour drive it probably is back peddling a bit. Thanx
