A simple pleasure during the fall months is getting outside, feeling the cool breeze, and marveling at the fall foliage. If you bring your car, a great place to take it for a spin during fall is in Vermont, specifically the Norwich area. Norwich is based in the Upper Valley in New England, and it’s one of the best times of the year to see the colors change and explore covered bridges, wildlife, and more. Start your fall New England roadtrip at The Norwich Inn. Here is what you should stop and look at when you begin your fall New England roadtrip.
You can drive 130 miles along the Connecticut River to see most of the Upper Valley. That’s one way of saying you will be on the road for a while, but you will see so much! The main highlight of this drive is the Connecticut River. Because you will drive near the river, you will have many opportunities to stop in small, welcoming towns. You’ll also see your fair share of covered bridges.
Woodstock, Hartland, Lebanon
These are three neighboring cities to Norwich. Driving to all three should take more than an hour, but you will want to stop into some shops, cafes, and parks to get the most out of your drive.
Biking In Norwich And More
Another way to explore the countryside is via a bike. You can rent an e-bike from Vermont Bike & Brew. They offer rentals for Haibike Trekking 5 and the iZip Vida ST 2.0. This is an affordable way to drive through the Upper Valley if you don’t have a car accessible to you.
