Highway 2 through Vermont and New Hampshire?

How are these roads pulling TH? We have been in Maine. Wife wanted to check the states NH and Vermont of our list. Is there a better road to take across both states heading west?

Living in VT, there is no easy way to go across the state (east/west) but the roads are ok to tow a trailer across. It is not the fastest. Take RT 4 from Rutland to I-89. It takes over an hour to go like 48 miles. Speed limits go from 50 to 25 on the road. I think someone once posted that there are 35 speed limit changes in 48 miles. The little town of Bridgewater brings in ~$240,000 a year in speeding tickets.

So basically RT 2 is fine as going across state is limited just mind your speed.

There is Only one road that you should NOT miss in New Hampshire & Vermont! The "Kancamagus Highway"! Do a Google search! It is a East/West highway! Youroo!!

Route 2

We took Route 2 from Bar Harbor through Vermont & New Hampshire and loved every minute of it. It is so scenic and yes, you see a lot of small town America taking this route, but the scenery is absolutely gorgeous! The roads were fine as well. We were two 40' motorhomes pulling toads and had no issues whatsoever. In New Hampshire, we rode the Cog Railway up Mt. Washington - what a ride! And passing through Vermont, we stopped at the Ben & Jerry's factory, took the tour, and enjoyed a "Mini Vermonster". I highly recommend Hghway 2 and would take it again if in that area.

We also took US 2 from Bar Harbor to Vermont in our Sunseeker 3100 with a toad. No problem but don't be in a hurry.

You may be interested in the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, VT. Their steamship alone is worth the visit.

If you decide to drive up Mount Washington, get directions from their website. They say GPS directions put you on the wrong side of the mountain. The entrance to the road is not in the same area as the cog railroad depot.

If you want to ride the cog railroad, they may still make the first run of the day with a steam engine. You need to check it out. The rest of the runs are with diesel-hydraulic locomotives, which they built in their shops.
