Backroad Drives in Southern VermontPosted on: October 5th, 2010 by Patti Eddington
Autumn in Vermont
The Bennington area boasts some gorgeous autumn drives. Nestled between the Taconic range in New York and the Green Mountain range in Vermont, Southern Vermont is the perfect place to experience fall foliage.
The drive through Old Bennington with its stately colonial homes and tree covered street to the Bennington Battle Monument has always been one of my favorites. Drive south past the Old First Church down Monument Avenue and climb Mt. Anthony (in your car) to breathtakingly beautiful Southern Vermont College. The mansion, the courtyard, the grounds and the views are spectacular.
Return down the College road to your right and follow Monument Avenue to where it meets Route 7, take a sharp right onto Carpenter Hill- the home of Southern Vermont Orchards. Apples, Ponds and VIEWS of the valley below…..it can’t be beat and only 10 minutes from the Eddington House in North Bennington Village.
Stay tuned for more fall drives and scenic views in the Bennington Vermont area..only 3 hours from Boston or New York.
