I'm going to do a day trip to Bennington in the near future. I don't know why I haven't done it before, considering it's like 45 mins. away. But anyways...recommendations for sights in/around Bennington? Some great history museums/sites? A good lunch or dinner joint? Thanks.

The college is the kind of place you dream of in your WASPiest moments.

It seems like a quaint New England town!

Is Manchester better?

Vermont or New Hampshire?

If Vermont, yes, I could be convinced to drive 10 miles out of my way to visit Manchester, as there are some fairly interesting things to do there, and if I recall correctly, there's a cool little general store there where you might be able to buy some quaint New England duck decoys and some goat's milk soap to truck back to the place you guys have upstate.

If New Hampshire, meh, you'd be better off with Portsmouth, Concord or Hanover if that whole Ivy League New England thing is that appealing to you..

Yeah, Manchester VT. Woah, I would go to Manchester solely for this: Robert Todd Lincoln's estate. http://www.hildene.org/

IIRC, there's an AE store there also, you could probably pay for your trip by flipping seconds over on that other place, especially if one were to use an English Auction approach..
