Bennington is a town in Bennington County, Vermont, in the United States. Step off the beaten path and head to President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site and New Catholic Cemetery. You'll explore and learn at Southern Vermont Arts Center and The Art of Humor Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Bennington: Calvin Coolidge Homestead (in Plymouth), Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester) and DaVallia Art & Accents (in Chester). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of The Old First Church.

Plan my trip to Bennington with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Newark to Bennington is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. Traveling from Newark in September, things will get little chillier in Bennington: highs are around 74°F and lows about 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Stowe.

Stowe bustles in winter when skiers and snowboarders flock here to challenge themselves on the long, steep trails careening down Vermont's tallest peak, Mt.
Hope Cemetery and St. Anne's Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to The Alchemist and Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits. Get out of town with these interesting Stowe side-trips: Round Church (in Richmond), Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (in Vergennes) and Woodchuck Cider House (in East Middlebury). There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Ethan Allen Homestead, learn about winemaking at Shelburne Vineyard, stop by Ziemke Glass Blowing Studio, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Queen City Brewery.
