My husband and I are doing a short road trip from Boston with my mother when we visit the US in September and are thinking about heading to the Green Mountain area for a short stop. We were looking for somewhere quaint but also somewhere we can go out somewhere nice for dinner. The main purpose of the trip is to see the turning leaves. We have looked at a number of B&Bs and Inns but have narrowed it down to either Bennington or Manchester. Although my mum likes to shop we were not wanting to go somewhere that is all about the shopping. Any suggestions on town choice? Thanks in advance for your help.
