My guy and I will be travelling through Northern NY and through Vermont as well. Wew go right through lots of little places such as (in NY) Messena, Ogdensburg, Mooers, (in Vermont) we go through Rouses Point, St Albens, and then over and through St Johns Bury) Basically we go across the upper north part of NY, cross at Rouses POint and then go diagonally through Vermont to arrive in NH. It is about a 7 hour drive and we normally do it without stopping but I see all of these nice places we pass and was wondering if maybe there were some locals that live within these areas that could offer advice on what there is to see or do along the way. Or good places to stop and eat... Maybe even a good cost effective but clean B&B perhaps??

I visit Ogdensburg once or twice a year with my boyfriend. His family has a vacation home there. its a small town, but there are some cool places to eat such as Phoenix on the Bay and Hacketts which are both down town. i also like stopping at the jones' farm which is on highway 37, which you would take to messena. There is also a winery, which is new, on highway 37, in red mills, right pass odgensburg (again on th way to messena). Hope you have fun!

I work, and am typing this right across the river here in Ontario! I work in Brockville which is ummm... maybe 15 minutes west of Ogdensburg! I would really be interested in visiting this winery though sounds like fun! Thank you so much!

Hi, Well I'm sorry I can't offer any advice as I'm in England and haven't been to that part of the states, although I hope to go to New York someday, but I doubt it will be for a couple of years. Let us know how you get on.. Good luck on your trip, when do you leave?

I live in the St. Albans area, but I'm from Burlington. So I've been in Vermont most of my life. If you drive through St. Albans, I would look at eating at Chow Bellas. It is located in downtown St. Albans on Main Street. The food and menu are excellent. It is a nice sit down type of restaurant and on some days they have a musician. And it won't break the bank.
