I've been reading this great forum for a while but I still have a lot of doubts, so I hope you could help me.
We're a spanish couple landing in Boston on the 23rd of July. Our plan is to stay for 3 nights there and hire a car for 2 weeks, leaving the 26th and returning to Boston the 8th of August.
It's not a problem if we can't go everywhere. We'd rather prefer visit less places calmly than being in a hurry for two weeks. We love the outdoors but are not very active. What we want is to enjoy the scenery, visit somoe cities and historical places, and walking/soft hiking in the mountains.
The idea for the road trip is something like this:
Washington DC (couple of days)
Norfolk / Virginia Beach
Blue Ridge Parkway
Shenandoah NP / Skyline Drive
Dutch Country in Lancaster County
NYC is not a must because we've already been there.
And my doubts are these:
- Is the round trip realistic? Could be longer? Must be shorter?
- Where to stay in Connecticut?
- How many days spend between Asheville and Harpers Ferry? Where to stay?
- After visiting the Dutch Country, go back straight to Boston or stop somewhere else?
I hope you could help us. Thanks!
