Hi all, I've come across this place whilst searching the net for road trip information starting from New york end heading north into New England. It looks like a friendly place after reading numerous threads!
Me and my girlfriend are from the Uk and are hoping to plan a trip to NYC in September 2013, but then thought whats the point on spending a fortune on flights to only stay 4 days in NY, why don't we add on a road trip after to make it worthwhile!....So here I am asking for your expertise in this area :)
Neither of us have ever been to the US and are very much looking forward to it! We would like to get to spend a few days in NYC doing the usual tourist stuff. Then go for a road trip for 7-10 days. We want to go into new England to see the history and first settlements, quaint villages, mountains/forests, whale watching and possibly some water sports. Alongside great food, oh and playing with some big guns!
My very rough idea is to head up to Niagra falls on the first day but I'm not sure if this is too far out? Then head back into vermont, new hampshire, Maine and down to Massachusetts to fly home from Boston.
Has anyone got experience of a trip like this, do we have enough time to do it? I'm still researching and trying to get an idea of distances and the best places to visit! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
