We are going on a last minute trip to catch the fall color, and we were interested in staying somewhere in Southern VT where we could sight see, maybe shop, and try some restaurants and pubs, in the evening, and hopefully not have to drive much at night. Would any of the above towns be good to stay in?

Manchester has lots of inns, motels, shopping and restaurants.
Brattleboro has unique shops, is more real and is not outlet central like Manchester.
Bennington -- been through there. Yawn.

My preference is none of the three. I have a place in a smaller town, with restaurants, pubs and inns. It's off I-91 exit 6 and is a reasonable drive to Manchester, Brattleboro, Ludlow, Woodstock.

Glastenbury.

Just kidding.

Bennington or Manchester would be better than Brattleboro, closer to some towns North of there than Brattleboro, and near some beautiful mountains and such. If you open up beyond there...I'd go further North to one of the smaller towns close to Route 7...

I vote for Manchester. Lots of variety with shopping, hiking on the Long Trail, many great restaurants and a host of B&B's, motels and inns.

I would suggest Manchester also. Great hiking at Equinox Preserve. Love the owners of the Olympia Lodge.
