We have gotten such good advice from this forum for our past motorcycle trips, I thought I'd ask again for some advice for our trip this year. We are leaving Iowa next week with the goal of journeying to Maine. We have a loop in the Adirondacks and a loop in Northern Vermont mostly figured out. We are planning on camping in Freeport, Maine and maybe doing a couple of 250-300 mile loops from there. The next part of the trip is taking Hwy 1 south to the Danvers, MA area before taking 62 and 126 to avoid Boston. We want to pass through Rhode Island and Connecticut before heading back through New York to home.
My husband's goal is to eat clam chowder and lobster...suggestions of great local restaurants would be appreciated. We love the mom and pop type joints, casual atmosphere and GREAT food.
We'd like to see a light house or two, maybe find a waterfall and drive beautiful roads that offer great scenery. We enjoy quiet backroads and try to avoid big city traffic. This will be our first trip to New England and we want to make the most of it. We are definitely nature people not commercial people (rocks, water and trees instead of museums, shopping malls and cities)
Suggestions for great scenic roads, campgrounds, local restaurants and must see attractions in Maine, Massachusettes, Connecticut and Rhode Island are all welcomed.
