Day 1BostonFrom winding roads in deep valleys and idyllic country homesteads, there's no better place to experience a slice of classic New England life than in Vermont. Overnight in Boston, one of America's oldest cities, before heading north to Vermont - a microcosm of New England at its finest.
Day 2BostonStart your morning with a scenic drive to Vermont, making your way past rolling hills, verdant mountains, and flowing waterways. Quaint villages, old-fashioned steeples, local boutiques, and country farms with iconic red barns are the quintessential staples of the Green Mountain State.
