Day 1: Burlington, Saratoga Springs (126 miles)
We suggest you book a flight arriving at Burlington before 12 noon. Pick-up your car at the airport and drive 1 hour to Fort Ticonderoga and begin your visit with a bang as you observe the afternoon musket demonstration. Take some time to walk around the beautiful grounds surrounding the gardens and be sure to take photos of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont! Garden lovers should catch the afternoon garden tour to the King’s Garden. Take time to visit some of the exhibits before you make your way up Mount Defiance for the guided “Witness to His-tory Tour” at 4 pm. You’ll need to drive all the way up to Mount Defiance, but the short 3-mile trip will be worth the stunning sight as you have a birds-eye view to history! After the visit, continue 70 miles south to reach Saratoga Springs for overnight.
