Looking for ideas, suggestions & recommendations for a day-long lazy roadtrip thru Central VT. We're heading up to Lebanon NH on Friday (to see Southside Johnny & The Jukes) & staying in W. Lebanon. Leaving W. Lebanon NH on Saturday morning, probably heading first to King Arthur Flour in Norwich VT.
From there, was thinking of back-roads up to Northfield and then over to Waitsfield (gotta make the pilgrimage there!), and then heading south to Killington, where we are staying for the night. And, yes, I'm well aware of the fact that our girl Grace and the Nocs are playing a mere 9 miles from my home on Friday & Saturday at Gillette Stadium. 3.5 hours of Springsteen is one thing. 30 minutes of Grace at 6pm is another. I'll wait until NOV/DEC to see them.
If anybody has recommendations for places to visit between Lebanon, Northfield, Waitsfield & Killington, I'm all ears...er...eyes! Food, drink, antiques, farms, cheese shops, anything of interest along the way.
We're also hitting Woodstock on Sunday morning on the way home (brunch at Bentley's - yum!).
Here's my proposed route. Avoiding highways. Not sure if I should go up Rte 14 thru East Bethel & East Brookfield, or go over to Rte 12 and head up north via Bethel & Randolph.
(and I finally get to meet Nancy on Friday, after missing her at 3 Springsteen shows last week!)
