1. Re: Fall Itinerary

You might want to move things from Friday's list( Waterbury through Cabot Annex) to Wednesday as these items are en route and nearby to the items listed for Thursday in Stowe. Thus you if you complete what you want to do in Waterbury, you can start in on Stowe...This will make for possible less backtracking. In Stowe the Helen Day Art Center sometimes has interesting exhibits.

On Friday, by "Shelburne" possibilities are the Shelburne Museum(a must see (imho), which can consume several hours( and if interested, I believe you can go back the next day on the same ticket, (in acknowledgement of there is a lot to see and not your typical museum), Shelburne, Farms, Shelburne Country Store, Shelburne Orchards(shelburneorchards.com) and the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. Rokeby, a little south of Dakin Farms in Ferrisburgh as well, is the former home of a Civil War Underground Railroad stop. (Magic Hat is en route in South Burlington) to the above items.

In Burlington, rent a bike if the weather is good and ride on Burlington Bike Path which in sections hugs Lake Champlain, with great views of the Adirondacks. Echo is the name of the science museum in Burlington on the waterfront, the Fleming Museum is the art museum of the University of Vermont in Burlington. The Ethan Allen Homestead is in Burlington, as well. Saturday mornings in Burlington's City Hall Park is where a farmer's market is held weekly.

Burlington is headquarters to both Gardeners Supply Company(catalog) and Burton Snowboards and both have company stores in Burlington

When you say fall, when does that mean? Some of the above will close for the season in mid to late October.

What is the name of place you mean to eat dinner at, "at the Reservoir"?

Thanks.

Thank you for all the suggestions. We are arriving October 5th and staying 5 days. The reservoir is a restuarant in Waterbury. It looks pretty good. Thanks for the idea of a bike rental. That might be a good way to burn off all the great food. Do you know of a farm that does hay rides or something like it?

Ho Hazeleye0624,

On the Wednesday I'd drop down route 7 towards Rutland, cross to route 100 south via route 125 at Hancock getting a great mountain pass drive, then take route 4 east to Woodstock and spend the night. On Thursday morning take route 100 north back to Stowe. Woodstock to Stowe, up route 100 takes about 3 hours and is a terrific drive via Rochester (Seasoned Books cafe...wonderful!) and Texas Falls thought Warren and Waitsfield to Ben & Jerry's (if you want it?) and on up to Stowe. To miss Woodstock on your trip would be something I think you would regret. Check out one of America's 5 prettiest villages at www.woodstockvt.com.

For hay rides, maybe Shelburne Farms or Shelburne Orchards, but guessing it maybe more of a special event item than a daily event. You might want to check with the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce(Info center in Burlington on Lower Main st, near the lake) www.vermont.org/ 802-863-3489 for more suggestions.

To burn off more calories in Burlington there is an indoor rock climbing center called Petra Cliffs.

Thanks for your answer re: the Reservoir.

One more thought. In the evening if there is an event of interest, the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts is a great venue and we attract a lot of good performances of all types. The main theater is an art deco beauty from 1929-30 and seats over 1400. The schedule for the '10-'11 season (begins in September) is not out until probably late-July to mid August, check www.flynncenter.org.

For other regional events, elsewhere check www.flynntix.org.
