    Hey Eric...

    When I lived in Albany and wanted to get to VT for skiiing, we'd usually take the "northway" (I-87) and then either cut over on Rt. 4 or Rt. 7 to either I-89 or other roads...

    Don't worry, Vermont has nice roads...they've made it to at least the late 20th century standards... :flipoff2:

    I make this trip twice a month. I generally take the Essex-Charlotte ferry or the bridge at Ticonderoga. The summer Port Kent-Burlington ferry is open. It's longer and more $$$, but a nice ride.

    I used to make this ride quite often when I lived in VT also. The bridge mentioned is the roue I used most often to get to Burlington. Going way north around the lake is pretty cool too if you have the time. Any of the routes mentioned are great drives though.

    Where in northern VT?
    the Northeast Kingdom, or the Saint Albans area?

    Lots of routes. Check 22 out of hoosic falls, NY, all the way to vergennes, vt. take 7 to South Burlington, then jump on 89 north to 15. Take 15 all the way to the N.E. kingdom.

    WAY longer, but very scenic.



    It seems as though my capitalization of proper nouns is completely random.


    (edit) I did not read the whole email, you are looking for a good route, not a scenic one.
    87 to the Ticonderoga bridge, to route 7, to route 89.

    All roads are fine, although they are doing a ton of construction on 7 into south burlington.
