VT with kids and grandparents

Jump to last reply

My inlaws have requested a side trip to Vermont when they come up. We would spend three nights, returning home on July 3. We will drive up I89 from southern NH. Our hotel reservations are for the Green Mountain Suites in Burlington.

Current plan is to stop in Quechee IF the inlaws are interested. It's an easy day trip for us, so no need to spend time there. I want to stop in Barre on the way to Burlington to visit the quarry. I think my 4 and 5 year old boys would love the tour.

Thinking one day will be spend in Shelburne. Do we want to visit the farm, the museum, or both?

Perhaps another day doing tours like Ben and Jerrys as well as Cabot.

Is the Echo aquarium worth a trip?

And how about hiking? We would like some shorter hikes that my husband, the kids, and I can do in the morning while the grandparents get ready for the day...say a 2 hour hike.

Thanks!
