I'm new to this board and really appreciate suggestions for my upcoming trip. I'm planning a surprised trip for my husband's special day. Plan to visit Boston, Cape Code, Maine and Newport during the first week of Sept. for 9 days. Will be flying in to Boston, what is the best route to avoid the crowd and traffic? I mean, should I heading north to Maine (South and Mid Coast), then drive back to Cape Code, then Boston and finish my trip in Newport or should do the reverse?
I plan to stay in each location for a couple days. Love to experience all the New England charms (light house, mansion, lovely town etc). Don't plan to spend much time at the beach.
Again, really appreciate any advice on this.
