Planning a fall weekend trip to Vermont? Don’t miss Mount Snow’s Oktoberfest celebration October 7th and 8th! Two days of fun for the entire family, Oktoberfest is both a celebration of autumn and of German tradition. While children enjoy activities such as face painting, pumpkin carving and schnitzel tossing, adults can sample German beers and foods. Over 40 New England artisans and vendors will be featured in the 44th Annual Harvest Arts & Crafts Fair. We highly recommend a scenic chairlift ride to check out the stunning views from the top of Mount Snow!
Fall in Vermont is marked by stunning foliage, and the Mount Snow area has some of the most gorgeous views in Vermont. Here is a drive that we recommend as one of the most scenic in the area:
Take Dover Hill Road through the villages of East Dover, Williamsville and South Newfane. Keep going until you reach Route 30. Take Route 30 South into Brattleboro, then take Route 9 out of West Brattleboro, over Hogback Mountain and into Wilmington. Turn right onto Route 100 in Wilmington and follow that back to Dover.
On this drive, you will see some of the most beautiful historic villages in the area, as well as larger towns, rural areas, farmland, mountains and rivers. Stop for lunch or a snack in Brattleboro or Wilmington on your way back up.
