Burlington to Newport

Jump to last reply

I am travelling to Newport, VT via Burlington airport in early July. Looking for some advice/help with the following:

It looks like there are 2 routes from the airport to Newport that appear to have similar travel times (1) 89 to 105 and (2) 89 to 100. Does anyone have advice about which route to take? We arrive on a Tuesday evening and will probably grab dinner in Burlington or a nearby town on the way to Newport. Any suggestions for restaurants in Burlington or on way to Newport that shouldn't be missed? I will warn that we have 2 small children in tow, but both are very well behaved and go out to dinner frequently.

We are contemplating driving to Montreal for a day and I was informed that the Jazz festival is going on during our trip. Has anyone been to Montreal during this festival? Think it will be too crazy for us to tackle with small children?

Based on my research so far, there doesn't appear to be too much "to do" in the Newport area other than enjoy the beautiful lake and scenery (which is fine by us). If there is any particular "don't miss" activity, please let me know. It will be difficult to do any strenuous hikes, but we do plan to enjoy the outdoors and hopefully do some swimming/boating on the lake. Also, any restaurant recommendations in the Newport area are also welcome!

Thanks in advance for your help - researching past forums has been very useful!
