White Mountains to Burlington

2 adults and 2 kids (21 and 18) looking to do the drive from the White Mountains to Burlington over a full day (9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.). We're west coasters interested in things unique to the area (covered bridges, cheese, maple, history, etc.). I know the kids would like to stop at the Ben & Jerry's Factory, but otherwise can anyone offer anything as far as the best route and interesting things to see/do along the way?

Thanks all.

1. Re: White Mountains to Burlington

Where in the White Mountains will you be? You'll either want to head to Vermont via Route 2 or route 302 depending on where you will be coming from.

A nice drive would be to find yourself in St. Johnsbury. Head north to the town of Lyndon where you'll find many covered bridges.

From Lyndon head back to St. Johnsbury and then head west on Route 2. When you get to West Danville take Route 15 west. From Route 15 you can pop down to Cabot and visit the Cabot Creamery. Go back to 15 and take it to Morrisville and take Route 100 South. Stop at the Rock Art Brewery if you like microbrews. Follow 100 south into Stowe. Here you have a couple options. If you have time, take Route 108 through Smugglers Notch back to 15. Keep following 15 west until you hit I-89 in Winooski, just north of Burlington. You would miss Ben & Jerry's on this route


Keep taking 100 south from Stowe. In Waterbury Center you'll come across the Cold Hollow Cider Mill where you can get your fix of Vermont products including maple. A little further south on 100 is the CAbot annex store, Lake Champlain Chocolate store etc. Then you'll come to Ben & Jerry's. Follow 100 south to 89 where you can head west to Burlington.

Enjoy your trip!

2nd vote for Rt 15 & Stowe/Smugglers Notch/Waterbury, and good itinerary from VTer. Another option is to do part of the drive on I-89 and do side trips.
