Vermont: Pimp my trip....

extramsg | | Oct 12, 2009 02:44 AM

Any help would be great. I feel especially worried about hitting anything schlocky. Also worried about most of my food options, other than places like Hen of the Woods. I know there's a lot below, but I figure that may help someone in my position in the future.

Okay, a few notes.
* = places definitely going
- = places I'd be interested in going
>>> = places we're definitely eating
> = places I'd be interested in eating
===> = places we're staying

Main help I'm looking for is:

1) Knowing what places aren't worth being on the list for whatever reason.
2) Places that aren't on the list that should be a high priority.
3) Places to eat, especially for Friday lunch around Burlington and Tuesday lunch between Burlington and Bennington, and Tuesday dinner near Bennington. Wednesday breakfast near Bennington also.

Not really interested in ethnic eats that I can get significantly better elsewhere in the United States. Not that interested in high end unless there aren't other options. For high end, only interested in locavorish, Vermont-oriented places. Most interested in rustic, New England comfort foods, though I realize that's a long-shot.
