A Classic Autumn in New England
Call for trip pricing
Rolling hills, warm colors, cool mornings invite you. Round the corner and you’re high above in the Green Mountains. Later, you’re in quiet farmland. Taste the maple. Savor the brilliant foliage. Take a break in Woodstock and walk the quaint shops in biking shoes. It’s okay. They’ve heard the “clip-clop” before. Southern Vermont was made for the ride.
