My wife and I (late 50’s early 60’s) will be doing a self drive tour of New England two weeks starting on the 26th September flying home on the 11th October.
After asking advice on Trip Advisor we have set in stone these dates and places and booked all accommodation.
I will be posting this on all New England forums for advice regarding must do’s in each area, please feel free to contribute and advise (taking into account the time in each place and travelling time)
We are seasoned travellers especially in the States and realise that this itinerary probably looks like a lot of driving and a whistle stop tour of some areas, but that’s the way it is.
We love short hikes (up to 5 miles long), nature, scenery, views, and nice homely meals.
We want to hike a section of the Appalachian Trail, leaf peep, drive in mountains and coastal areas and basically have as good a time in this part of the States as we have in other areas.
September 26th Arrive Boston evening, two full days, three nights.
September 29th pick up car and head to Portland ME one night
September 30th Drive to Bar Harbour ME three nights
October 3rd Drive to North Conway NH three nights
October 6th Drive to Stowe VT two nights
October 8th Drive to Lenox MA one night
October 9th Drive to Newport RI two nights
October 11th Drive to Boston return car and fly home to England.
All advice gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
