Back Where You Began: Boston—the start and end of this VT-centric trip  (Corbis)

Days Six and Seven: Stowe to Addison to Boston (210 Miles)
Spend the last two days on the western part on the state, on or near the shores of Lake Champlain. In Burlington, your can take a half-day sailing trip with Winds of Ireland (800.458.9301; www.windsofireland.net) or bike on the 7.5-mile long Burlington Bikeway that hugs the waterfront of this massive lake.

Then head south to Vergennes and Button Bay State Park (802.475.2377; www.vtstateparks.com/htm/buttonbay.cfm), home to one of the finest campgrounds in the state. On the shores of Lake Champlain, the 72 sites for tents and RVs are nestled between the Adirondacks in New York and Vermont's Green Mountains. Swim or take a stroll on Button Bay Road (which turns into Lake Road), a gently rolling route dotted with silos. The aptly named Eat Good Food (802.877.2772; www.eatgoodfoodvt.com) on Main Street in Vergennes is perfect for lunch or take-out food for picnics. From Vergennes, it's about a four-hour drive back to Boston.
