Providence, RI to Woodstock Suggested stops along the way

Jump to last reply

On Monday, Oct 3rd, I'm leaving Providence airport around 9am and heading to Woodstock where I have a reservation for two nights. On Wed, the 5th I am flying back home to California from Manchester NH airport with my plane leaving around 3:10pm.

I am trying to decide what stops to make on my way to Woodstock and would like to get off the Interstate and see some of the towns along the way. People have mentioned Grafton and Weston. Looks like I can cut through Connecticut getting on to I91 and then get off on VT 121 to Grafton. Map says that woud take about 3 hours.

After leaving Grafton, I would cut over to 100, stop in Weston and then take 100 to 4 to Woodstock. Looks like 100 from Ludlow to Bridgewater is now open although maybe only one lane in places. I guess from Weston I could take take 131 back to I91 and the Interstate to 4 to Woodstock to avoid delays on 100 but that also seems out of the way. I'd like to get to Woodstock before dark.

Is going to both Grafton and Weston too much for one day? I will be traveling alone but love to drive and love winding, back country roads. If it's too much, which would be the best stop? Or if I only did one of the towns, what would be some other stops along the way?

I will then have all day Tuesday to drive and look at foliage, see Woodstock and am thinking about the Quechee Gorge. Looking at the Foliage report I may need to go north from Woodstock or west on 4 towards Rutland. I'm sure my hosts at my B&B can give me some updated information on foliage. Wednesday, I'd like to see Dartmouth on my way to Manchester Airport.

Thanks for all your help. This is my first time to Vermont and first time to see foliage although my DDs and I spent quite a bit of time in New Hampshire 2 summers ago and just loved it.
