Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Michael Blanding and Alexandra Hall met working five feet from each other as editors at Boston Magazine, where Alex covered food and fashion and Michael wrote about politics and crime. Since then, they’ve traveled the world together, dodging bicycles on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, breaking an axle on a safari in South Africa, and closing out nightclubs in Reykjavik, Paris, and Buenos Aires (not an easy feat!). But wherever their travels have taken them, they’ve always loved returning to New England for its mix of natural beauty and enlightened culture. Michael and Alex pride themselves on having driven, hiked, canoed, or sailed every corner of the six-state region, ferreting out underrated restaurants, backwoods museums, and hidden villages along the way.

Alex grew up on Boston’s South Shore and studied at Wheaton College and Le Cordon Bleu Institute in Paris. After years as a senior editor for both Boston Magazine and dailycandy.com, she became creator and editor of Fashion Boston magazine at The Boston Globe. Her most recent venture is the launch of her own digital lifestyle magazine, COUP Boston. Michael grew up west of Boston, attended Williams College, and was a staff writer and editor at Boston Magazine for five years. Now a freelance magazine writer, he has also taught journalism at Emerson College, Northeastern University, and Tufts University. He recently published his first book of investigative non-fiction, The Coke Machine: The Dirty Truth Behind the World’s Favorite Soft Drink, and is currently at work on a true crime book called The Map Thief that will be published in 2013.

Together, Alex and Michael have written for publications including Condé Nast Traveler, Bon Appétit, Town & Country Travel, New England Travel, Yankee, Boston Magazine, Elle Decor, Continental, Business Traveler, The Nation, The New Republic, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and AlterNet. They were married on the rustic shores of Maine's Moosehead Lake, where Michael wore a kilt and Alex donned red heels and white feathers. They now live in the Boston suburb of Brookline with their cat, Isabella, and their seven-year-old son Zachary and six-year-old daughter Cleo, who have fast become two of the best-traveled kids in the world.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of many guides about Vermont. I would not rate this one as the "best" guide I've seen, but it is also not the worst. Not enough info on hotels, motels and B and B's, but good suggestions on nice country drives and of course the standard fare on all the "hot" tourist places around Vermont.

It is printed in larger print, so retired RV'ers coming to Vermont during leaf season might want to consider this book as their primary guide. After all, since they are driving an RV they won't need motel info anyway so this book will give them more of what they are looking for without having to sort through info that would seem irrelevant to an RVer anyway.

This book has szome nice photos and lots of great information about Vermont, my favorite state. I bought this to help me decide where I'd like to retire to in the future. A great resource. If you love a country atmosphere and beautiful landscape with lots of pines and awesome colors in autumn, you need to visit Vermont.

I used this book for my recent visit to Burlington and the Champlain Islands. It had some good leads but missed many off-the-beaten-track gems that luckily I was able to find using local newspapers and flyers when I arrived. It also had faulty info about a not-so-off-the-beaten-track tourist spot: the Ben and Jerry's factory. I really liked the small local maps in the book but was constantly cross referencing other sources and stumbling on businesses and sites that were well deserving of mention. I have used the Maine coast moon handbook many times and rely on it for hard to find information; this Vermont edition did not live up to my expectations.

Moon Handbooks can always be relied on for comprehensive info on a state's sightseeing destinations, restaurants, and lodging facilities. I will be packing this book in my suitcase as my family heads for Vermont.

We used this book (among others) on our fall foliage trip through Vermont. It has lots of good information and some decent pictures. I wouldn't use it to book your hotel (it has some suggestions, but not much), but as you're driving around the state it has helpful information on a lot of areas. The text is easy to read (especially for older eyes) and there are itineraries with maps to help you prioritize your excursions or plan your trip.

This book got me exactly what I needed. I wanted to have a map, know where to eat and where to stay and what cab company to call. This did all that. I'm sure it would do more if I had needed it for more.
