hey rich !!! C Connelly mcgil Rich, here goes.

The fast non-scenic way:

From Saratoga, take the Northway (Int.87)north to exit 28, Ticonderoga, follow NY route 74 east into town and look for signs for ferry (they're all over.)

The scenic, fun route:

From Saratoga, take the Northway (87) north to exit 19, Glens Falls.

There you'll find all kinds of great things to do. Story Town & the Great Escape (a great Adventure type amusement park) for you and the kids. For your wife & daughter, there's great outlet shopping.

From Glen's Falls, take NY Rte 9 north to Lake George (Irene's stomping ground, she can tell you all the great things to do there)

Then take NY rte 9n north to Ticonderoga. This is a beautiful ride through beautiful country. A lot of twists & turns, but worth it. In Ticonderoga, there are signs that lead you to lake Champlain & the ferry.

Once in Vermont, I'm guessing you want to head up to Burlington. There are two ways to get there.

When you get off the boat, follow the signs for Vt rte 74 north, then either

1. take 74 north to rte 22a north to rte 7 - Vergennes, and north on route 7 to Burlington.


2. take 74 north to route 30 north to Middlebury and then Route 7 north to Burlington.

The Middlebury route is a longer route, but Middlebury is an interesting place to visit. Interesting shops, good restaurants and a brewery. Nothing much for the kids, but the women will like it.

Good luck & if you need any more info, let me know. Oh yeah, one more thing. It's been known to snow & can get pretty cold up until June in this part of the world -- especially at night. So bring some walm clothing!
