I'm taking Amtrak and staying in Olgonquit, Maine then Portland, Maine and renting a car and driving solo and want to see the quaint small towns, the best fall colors and eat the best food. My stays are booked in the White Mountains of N.H. but does it make sense to try to ride the Vermonter up to Burlington,Vt.from Montpelier since I have a Amtrak pass? I need to be in Stockbridge Mass. by day 5 and back to Boston by day 8. All tips and ideas are greatly appreciated!
