We are taking 6 days in early October to see the colors. We want to stay in Burlington VT for ?3 days, then another destination for 3 days. Should the other destination be Stowe, or some other cute nearby town that we can still get lodging in, or Montreal as we are coming from the midwest with a stop in Stratford ON to see a play. We have not seen Montreal - not sure what to do there (suggestions?) - but it is only a couple hours from Burlington. We are an active couple in our 60's - like to hike, bike, & kayak. This may be over Columbus day weekend so I hope it is not too late. Also, any interesting stops between the long drive from Stratford to Burlington or Montreal?
