Vermont, RT100 Scenic Byway

  • 300Audio Points
  • LocationVermont, USA
  • Suggested TimeAllow 1+ Days

What to Expect

RT100, also known as Vermont’s Main Street, is the most traveled stretch of road in the state. The beautiful foliage colors of the Fall are a favorite time to enjoy this drive, but any time once the snow has stopped falling, is a great time to visit.

Along this route we pass through some very classic Vermont towns and villages, many having picturesque churches and cute country stores. There are also opportunities to see classic covered bridges and scenic waterfalls.

Foodies will love this tour with many opportunities to sample Vermont produce and delicacies including cheeses, ciders and maple syrup. A highlight stop is of course the home of Ben & Jerry’s for ice cream.

Learn how Smugglers Notch got its name and visit the Von Trapp Family Lodge, (yes from the Sound of Music), the home of President Calvin Coolidge and several of Vermont’s alpine resorts, like Killington.

This tour is one of the most scenic drives in New England.
