I'm going to have some time off in October, and I want to do a fun solo trip. One idea is looking at fall colors in Vermont/etc. Not only have I never been to VT but I've never seen the beautiful fall colors of New England at all. I know there are a ton of online resources to help plan but what I really want to know is if it's possible to do this on a budget and without huge crowds/traffic. I could do it on weekdays.
