Hi. I see some great suggestions here, but thought I might see if there are other suggestions that match my interests. My friend and I will be driving from Western Long Island, NY to Maine (we know we want to see Arcadia National Park, but are open beyond that. We will be going during the 3rd week of July. We are interested in beautiful views, especially waterfalls, great food & dessert, art, quaint towns, port towns, light hiking and other activities that are not too strenuous, etc. We'd love to make any worthwhile stops along the way, and possibly spend a night somewhere to cut our drive. I've sadly, never been to Vermont, R.I., or any other states N. of me, with the exception of Boston and Conn. I am open to suggestions. Thanks!!
