Aspen, if you're still driving to VT via Queensbury/Rutland, there is a large Hannaford store on the Left hand side after you turn onto route 7/4 - driving from NY, you come over route 4 then to a big intersection in Rutland (7/4 combined). Turn Left at that intersection and Hannaford will be in a p...

I believe that they are widely available in VT. I've purchased 2 in Rutland - stop at one of the convenient stores/gas stations (on route 4)and I'm almost certain you'll find one. If I am remembering correctly, there is a large Citgo gas station almost directly across from the EconLodge on route 4 -...

If you go to the Taftsville bridge, take time to stop at the Taftsville Country store (http://taftsville.com/) - it's right across the street from the covered bridge. It is a wonderful, small store with LOTS of VT made products, a great cheese and wine selection and very friendly owners (and their d...

One very cool covered bridge runs between Windsor, VT and Cornish, NH (see details here: http://gonewengland.about.com/library/coloring/ncbcolor3.htm). the pen and ink drawing on this webpage doesn't depict how nice the bridge really is. If you want to see other photos a "google" search wi...

The Grist Mill in Killington is good and not overly crowded during the non-ski season. The Corners Inn in Bridgewater has also been recommended but I've not eaten there. Bentley's in Woodstock is very popular and the food is OK, but it's not someplace i wanted to go back to after eating there. If yo...

Topic: Which road from Waitsfield to Rutland 100 or 7?
Replies: 3
Views: 3036

I would guess that 100 will be more colorful. In my experience, 7 turns later (and is not quite as scenic). BUT, you could take a route that combines both 7 and 100 if you travel one of the Gap roads that runs between 7 and 100. For example, travel down 100 part way - cut over route 73 - end in Bran...

Moose spotting locations/stories

I've enjoyed seeing a few moose in VT over the past several years and know that many people look for moose when in VT. A few years ago, I spent a good part of an early morning and late afternoon looking for moose. I went to the places where I had seen them before only to be disappointed by their not...

Great shots and thanks for sharing.
I especially like the pictures you captured in your 'rearview' mirror. Some of my favorite VT photos are those I've captured when i have looked back!! Another good reason to spend time outside of our cars so we can capture more of a 360 view!

Kelly Stand Road (you can access it off of route 7 near East Arlington) is really nice. We drove it once and also stopped at Grout Pond. Grout Pond has some nice, easy hiking trails. Right near Grout Pond, Kelly Stand Road turns into Arlington Road, then Stratton Arlington Road -ending at West Wards...

VT is small enough that "PEAK" is ALWAYS within driving distance! In terms of traffic, heavy traffic in VT is nothing like heavy traffic in other parts of the world. Having recently endured gridlock in NYC I can assure you that you won't have anything resembling that experience in VT. Some...

For a slight variation - as you travel north on Route 100, turn right on 100A (in Plymouth). 100A is just a few miles long, but very scenic and you'll drive by the birthplace of Calvin Coolidge. Drive 100A to route 4. Turn left on route 4 (west) and pick 100 back up off of route 4 (in Killington). A...

The gaps are east/west roads that run across the mountains through the green mountain national forest. From Bridgewater Corners, travel 4 west to 100 North. The Brandon and Middlebury gap roads (routes 73 and 125) can both be accessed from route 100 (you'll turn left on those roads). If you take eit...

I've driven the Middlebury gap a number of times. As I remember, it's completely paved. There are steep grades but you'll be fine in your vehicle. Texa Falls is a really nice place to stop for a walk, picnic, etc. I have also driven the route 73 gap road (not sure of the name but it runs between Roc...

Just as an FYI- Ben and Jerry's is usually packed on Columbus Day weekend- buses, RV's, cars and tons of people. I took some friends up last year and was so overwhelmed with the crowd that I dropped them off and waited in the car! Just my opinion, but it doesn't *feel* like VT when dealing with larg...
