We, (3 friends over 50) are flying to Boston and have 9 days before we need to be in NYC. We arrive late on the 1st May and are staying in Boston until the 4th. We are going to hire a car then have 2 nights with a relative in Manchester, MA.
We would then have 5 days/4 nights and would like to drive up through NH to Maine as far as Portland and come back a different route through Vermont to end up dropping the car at somewhere like Providence to catch the train to NY.
The other option was to go North Conway but we were not sure then the most scenic route back to Providence.
We have nothing booked for the last 5 days and would really appreciate some advice on the most scenic and feasible route. Thank you
