Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum but I've been lurking around for a while now =]
On this road trip, my plan is to drive from NYC to Bar Harbor, Maine in one day and then work my way down.
This is what I've got so far:
Acadia National Park
Bar Harbor Ferry & Trolley Tour
Bar Harbor Historical Society
Abbe Museum [my mom said that it sounds really boring.. heh..]
Village Green: Right in the heart of town, The gazebo hosts the town band every Monday and Thursday night.
That's all I've got so far and I was only going to spend around 3-4 days there. I'm not really into hiking o camping too much... I prefer cruises or bus tours. I prefer historical sights over pretty nature.
So then after Maine, I'm not sure if I should skip Vermont and New Hampshire, but so far, I haven't found anything super interesting there to make it worth the money for a good hotel [I'm very picky].
Anyway... after that, I'm going to stop in MA...
Boston Duck Tour
Freedom Trail: A 2.5 mi. walking tour of 16 historic sites that begins at Boston Common, goes through downtown Boston, and connects to the Boston Harbor Walk.
Ghost Tour: [LOVE IT!]
Plymouth Plantation Tour by Bus
Witch City - Salem & Marblehead Tour by Bus
Boston to Provincetown High-Speed Ferry
Faneuil Hall Marketplace
MIT Museum: [My mom said that this sounded really boring...]
Warren Anatomical Museum: Collection of distinct and pathological examples in anatomy
Semitic Museum: Collection of over 40,000 artifacts from the Near East
Peabody Museum of Archeology and Ethnology: One of the oldest museums in the world devoted to anthropology
Museum of Science
So after 3-5 in Boston, Cambridge, Plymouth, and Salem [hopefully], I was thinking of driving over to Connecticut for 1 or 2 days... if I could only find more interesting things there. I found some fun things to do in New Haven but after doing some research and reading some scary things about the crime rate and so on, I'm not sure if I want to go there after all...
This is all I've found so far:
Gillette Castle State Park:
Aaand after that, maybe I'll stop in Rhode Island for a day or two.
So... any suggestions? I'd really appreciate it!
Great Forum, by the way! =D
