My dates are tentative, as air has not yet been purchased. We will be flying from west coast into and out of Burlington.
Arrive Burlington Sep 26, late evening. O/N there.
Sep 27 rent car and drive to Montreal, via Champlain islands,
3 nights in Montreal - see the sights of the city.
Sep 30 drive to Quebec City - stay there 4 nites. See the sights of the city, and at least one day drive NE along St Lawrence seaway.
Oct 4 drive to VT. Understand about 3-4 hours to Newport. Stay in that area 2 nights. Perhaps Lake Salem. Explore area within a few miles east and west of Hwy 91. Perhaps just R&R after power site seeing in Canada.
Oct 6 Drive to Stowe area, stay there 2 nights. Definately drive Smuggler's Notch.
Oct 8 drive to Conway, NH via Hwy 302 taking in activities along the way.
Oct 9 explore area, possibly area south of White Mountains; Tamworth, Sandwich, Plymouth.
Oct 10 (Monday) drive to Woodstock via Hwy 112 "Kanc", thence 93, 25, 118, 4.
Stay in Woodstock area (maybe Quechee) 3 nights. One day trip would be up Hwy 100 to Mont Pelier, taking in Waitsfield area.
Oct 13 drive to Middlebury area stay there 2 nights. Would like to take in Fort Ticonderoga if possible
Oct 15 drive to Burlington
Oct 16 Home.
I have stacks of notes as to what to see in these various areas. I hope I have enough time in each. Given the uncertainty of "peak" colors, I think I'm placing us in areas at potentially good times.
We will be looking for B&B's and Country Inn's, hopefully off the beaten track a little. Some of those beautiful Inn's are tempting, but upwards of $400/night and more is not gonna work. I have several from the Fodor's and Mobile guides, along with a few other web sites.
But my first order of business was to determine route and timing, then start the reservation business.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
