On our last day in New England, we woke in our beautiful Taconic Hotel in Manchester, Vermont. We had originally planned to drive a bit North to see Grafton, Vermont and then head back to Boston but because it had snowed overnight, we didn’t want to have to drive through the high mountain pass through the Green Mountains back to Grafton. On a whim, we switched up our plan and headed South into Northern Massachusetts driving MA Route 2 all the way back to Boston. And while we were a little unsure of what we would find on our way back, we were blown away by how beautiful this drive was. From hilly roads filled with color and white steepled churches with snow on the ground to huge river gorges surrounded by amazing Fall color, this route was beyond beautiful! One thing we learned on this trip: always choose driving the scenic route in New England!
