Gear-head mountain bikers, history buffs, ice cream, cheese, or music lovers -- even those in search of the perfect country curtain -- can indulge in their passions on this drive south through Vermont and Massachusetts. Burlington, on Lake Champlain, may be Vermont's largest city, but it's still an authentic New England college town, with attendant inexpensive trendy shops. Wheel south through the Green Mountain Forest, where skiing, mountain biking, and hiking await.
