This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip my wife and I made through eight New England States during the month of September – Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
Part 4 – When we finished driving through the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in New Hampshire we drove on into Vermont. After crossing the border, we stopped at the welcome center to pick up some maps and details about Vermont. While there we discovered that Vermont offers free WiFi statewide. I commend Vermont for such a great benefit for travelers!
We stayed at a wonderful B&B on our first night in Vermont, The Quechee Inn. Great atmosphere and terrific food at their restaurant. We visited the Quechee Gorge bridge which is 165′ above the Ottauquechee River. Breathtaking to say the least.
Next we drove into Killington, VT. I posted a piece titled “Hay Bale Art” back in August of this year so I won’t go into detail because you can take a look at the blog.
We also visited Cabot Creamery as well as Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. You must see both of these locations when visiting Vermont.
We spent our second night in Vermont at a B&B called The Four Chimney’s Inn in Bennington, Vt. Great owners, beautiful rooms, and a terrific breakfast. A must stay location!
Two days was not enough time to visit such a beautiful state. Vermont was absolutely gorgeous. Again, lush green countryside, quaint towns, and a lot of history.

After Vermont we jumped on the interstate highway, which we had tried to avoid up to this point, and headed for Niagara Falls, which will be highlighted in part 5 of this series.
Hope you enjoy…
