A weekend in Rutland

Hi tripadvisor friends! You've helped me before. My husband wants to spend a weekend in Rutland visiting family and places from his childhood. I want to also go for the fall foliage. Do you guys have any interesting suggestions for things to do when we're there? I know we missed the State Fair - we're going to be there Oct 8-10 Thanks for your suggestions!

That's likely going to be near peak foliage colors, so a drive up to Killington, and up and down Rt. 100 could be quite lovely.
