Hello Bamckeown1964,

I just pulled up Mapquest and googled in Weston, MA's zip code of 02493 then Burlington, MA's zip code of 01803 and made up a common street name.....it came back with a drive of

20 minutes; 14.05 miles.

There IS a Burlington, VT but if you Google that address in with their common zip code of 05402 it would be a 2 hour; 7 mins drive.

Try it again! Sometimes that Mapquest can be WRONG you know! I used it one time and I followed the directions to a "T" and it had me all over New Hampshire near my own house; it was hysterical when we realized it at the end of the drive! SO you might have to go to another form of driving directions! Just google in driving directions and check it out again!

Hello Bamckeown1964,

You're talking about Vermont? That's another state all together. You're in the Massachusetts forum. That's why you're getting the answers you're getting with the towns in Massachusetts ours are only 20 minutes away. Vermont is another story!

Vermont like Massachusetts has a town Weston as well as a City of Burlington which is the capital city of the state of Vermont.

You can check out each area by a 'detailed profile' which helps you understand each area or each state a little better.

For example, here's Burlington, Vermonts....

city-data.com/city/Burlington-Vermont.html

YES:

Weston, Vermont 05161 to Burlington, Vermont 05401 is approximately 2 HRS - 10 MINS....

NoMO01 - I am sure that it was an oversight on your part but the good people of Montpieler, VT and all geographers will be shocked to learn that their State capitol was moved overnight to Burlington, VT.

I had to laugh when I saw what I did! I should have KNOWN Montpelier was their capital I have cousins living RIGHT up in Montpelier for years and years and I KNEW it was the capital, but I had it in my head that Burlington was their capital and I couldn't get it out of my head and you know why?

Because one of my nieces was up there just last winter and her car windshield got smashed to smithereens with a baseball bat by some punk. It was just parked on a side street up there. We had to go up to get her and figure out what to do about the car up there, it was a real pain over a weekend; so that's why I had it in my head that Burlington was their capital city. I hate that place with a passion because of what happened to us. The "Granola's" kids are brutal up there if you ask me!

Thanks for posting the correction Edgars, now can we get OFF the Vermont subject paaalease every one! Too funny.....
