Thank you for reading this post.
We are a couple with a 6 year old boy. we have spent this summer in Boston so far and will travel New England for 10 days on early August.
I borrowed several weapon-heavy guide books from libraries and spent several nights for research online and offline.
So here is my draft itinerary. Please help me out. What do you think?
Oops. before starting the itinerary, I should tell more about us, what we do & don't like in general.
1. We dislike shopping and want to avoid shopping malls and outlets at all cost.
2. We travelled Rhode Island two years ago and exclude RI this time.
3. We love beautiful shorelines, never tired of it, but don't have to be inside water all the time. Maybe one afternoon will be enough for swimming.
4. While staying in Boston for 6 weeks. we have had enough museums and freedom trails. Though we love little towns and want to see more of them, we don't necessarily need more revolutionary war stuff.
Ok, here is the Itinerary.
Kennebunkport & Ogunquit
Spend the first night in Kennebunkport (already made a reservation)
Spend the second night in Portland (already made a reservation)
Acadia NP (already made a reservation)
Leave Acadia NP early in the morning to the White Mts.
Enjoy Washington mountain and Flume Gorge.
May stay the night at Gorham, NH (any recommendation for the night?)
Cornish, NH to see the the Cornish-Windsor Bridge
Canterbury Shaker Village, Shaker Road
Mystic Seaport, CT
Spend the last night between Cape Code and Boston.
Back to Boston and catch 11:30 am flight back home.
We made reservations for the first five nights but not the last five nights yet. Any recommendations?
We don't want to hurry up and move fast between spots. If this itinerary is on tight side, I'm very willing to cut a couple of places out.
We want variety of experiences so if this itinerary is boring or redundant at times, please advise so and give me recommendations for new destinations.
For CT, I considered Litchfield Hills but couldn't figure out how to put the region in the picture since it is a rather wide area. So instead I include Mystic Seaport. We are not fans of too touristic place. So I'm slightly doubtful about this decision.
Thank you for reading this long posting and please please help me.
