Woodcock season is in October in Maine. Seriously fun hunting with a pointer and a guide. Went a few times with my dad. Hiking through dense, coastal, second-growth forest, shooting tiny little game birds through the trees, is high quality father son bonding

After a hot summer you want to go to the water, but not to go into it. But there's also the moment when I went to Niagara Falls in the U.S. and Canada. These are completely different things. In the warm season, Niagara during the navigation season, offers an unforgettable cruise on the Niagara River, under the Falls (payment for the cruise tickets is on the spot, not included in the price of the tour). It is also possible to visit the Cave of the Winds. But in Canada, there is a distinctive point - it's wildlife and they are much bigger. Our Queen Tour has taken care of everything to make us feel the difference. It's not and the land is so completely and unfathomable.

Hunting is tough in Vermont. Stick to Maine.

my family has had a home in Vermont, Halifax/Jamaica & pico peak area, for 70+ years. Grew up skiing fast, crunchy conditions. There’s no such thing as “ice”.

any of the small towns on rte 100 can be fun. Long trail brewery is a fun novelty. Heady topper if you’re into that and they are running a batch. A few local bars can be a trip. Appalachian trial, any part. Okemo/Rutland/Stowe areas for the most luxurious Pampering New England can offer outside of Boston. my Wife loves Woodstock vt and she highly dislikes New England. Period.

have fun. Great time of year catching the end of fall foliage.

So far the mountain biking in Stowe and Burke has been sick! Heading towards Cutler, Acadia, and Portland the next few days, after a hike in the Whites tomorrow.
Franconia range is a good one above treeline east coast mountains are rad

Another fan of Woodstock . We would rent for the season at Killington , to escape the crowds we would ski a local spot in Woodstock. Suicide Six , a micro run but the town is a must see .
