Montpelier is the capital city of the U.S. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bragg Farm Sugar House & Gift Shop and Camel's Hump. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Montpelier: North Conway (Kancamagus Highway & Black Cap Hiking Trail), Zipline (in Lincoln) and Glen Ellis Falls (in Jackson). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, take in the dramatic scenery at Flume Gorge, take in the views from Northfield Covered Bridges, and stop by The Quirky Pet.

To see ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Montpelier travel planning website .

Plattsburgh to Montpelier is an approximately 2-hour car ride. October in Montpelier sees daily highs of 58°F and lows of 38°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Mon) so you can go by car to Stowe.

Stowe bustles in winter when skiers and snowboarders flock here to challenge themselves on the long, steep trails careening down Vermont's tallest peak, Mt.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Moss Glen Falls and Gold Brook Covered Bridge (Emily's Covered Bridge). Venture out of the city with trips to Champlain Memorial Lighthouse (in Crown Point), Star Trek Original Series Set Tour (in Ticonderoga) and Burlington (Vintage Photography Emporium, Queen City Brewery, & more). There's still lots to do: hike along Stowe Recreation Path, take in the exciting artwork at Remarkable Things at Stowe Craft, take in breathtaking views at Sterling Falls Gorge, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Mansfield State Forest.

For more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Stowe travel planning app .

Stowe is very close to Montpelier. In October, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 39°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to drive back home.
