While Saratoga was well worth the travel, it was a good 3 1/2-hour drive from Boston [props to all the Boston Bloggers who did it in a single day!], so BF and I decided to break up the trip and stop for a day + night in Bennington, Vermont.

[ travel summary ]
who:: BF apparently isn’t too sick of me yet. Just us two.
what:: the city has been all sorts of cray with tourists and whatnot lately, so I was happy to just get out and enjoy wandering around a small town! we’re also just a few days away from moving into a new space, so antiquing + thrifting for decor, furniture, and other fun things was a priority, and we were surprised at how many stores like such we came across.
when:: we, admittedly, visited in VT’s shoulder season, where we got a very good rate at the b&b. the prime time to visit is fall for the foliage, so I suppose we’ll just have to go back 😉
where:: stay at safford mills inn & cafe— this is not your average bed & breakfast! namely, because there’s no breakfast included. it turns into a martini bar on friday & saturday nights, so in lieu of scrambled eggs, you’re provided with complimentary cocktails and appetizers | eat & drink at madison brewing co pub & restaurant | treasure hunt at The Owl’s Nest Upholstery & Antiques | visit the Bennington Battle Monument [it’s not New England without a little history!]
wear:: I doubted my normally preppy, coastal style would be so welcome in Vermont, so I opted for a more casual, boyfriend look… this is me trying to be cool and fit in with the Bennington College kids, Chuck Taylors and all yo.
Have you been to Bennington? Where else should we explore in VT?
