We are planning a road trip from MN to visit VT, NH & Maine at the end of Sept. We would have about 5 days in each state.
We are interested in photography especially of the leaves & covered bridges, moderate hiking, wildlife viewing and visiting small towns.
We realize that many others will be in the area for many of the same reasons. I would like to book our accommodations soon. Will there be alot more traffic on the weekend of Sept 28 & 29 that you would advise trying to find another slot of time to visit Stowe? Would like to stay in the area for 3 nights. The B&B we have in mind has openings starting on Sept 22 or 27.
Would appreciate your opinion. Also appreciate your thoughts re should we stay in Bennington or near there for a few days to visit similiar sites? Trying to get a sense of where to base ourselves.
Thank you for your help.
