Vermont's Route 100 offers fall foliage and more

February 28, 2012 12:00 AM

There are many famous roads throughout the country, but those who have been to New England in order to see the leaves turn have likely heard of Vermont's Route 100, which offers some of the most stunning scenery in the state.

This road stretches all the way from the Massachusetts border up into Canada, and there's plenty to see along the way, according to Travel Guide of America. The town of Waterbury, for example, is home to two separate producers of tasty treats. The Cold Hollow Cider Mill makes some of the best apple cider in the country and is a hit with the locals in the colder months. Meanwhile, the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory allows visitors to see how this small chain grew into an international enterprise, while also sampling some of the tastiest ice cream around.

Heading further north, drivers will eventually reach the town of Stowe. This village is home to a ski resort, hiking trail and Smuggler's Notch State Park, which offers some breathtaking mountain scenery.

When traveling through semi-remote areas such as this, it's a good idea to have your car checked out beforehand by an auto maintenance expert, who can identify car repairs before they ruin your trip.
