“We did it”; says Marji Graf of the Okemo Valley Chamber of Commerce. “Two years after the Scenic Route 100 Byway was established, the effort to expand the Byway north and south along RT100 to include an additional 14 towns has been completed.
On April 19, 2013, the Vermont Transportation Board formally approved the Scenic Route 100 Byway expansion to now encompass 20 towns: Granville, Hancock, Rochester, Stockbridge, Pittsfield, Killington, Bridgewater, Plymouth, Ludlow, Andover, Cavendish, Weston, Londonderry, Jamaica, Wardsboro, Stratton, Dover, Wilmington, Whitingham and Stamford. This is now Vermont’s second largest Byway at 138 miles, behind the Connecticut River Byway, crisscrossing along the spine of the Green Mountain from the Mad River Valley to the Massachusetts border. “
Take the time to get off the route and explore the historical villages of Chester (Vermont’s Prettiest Painted Village) & Weston (Home of the Vermont Country Store)
