In October 2013, DH has a conference in Boston from October 11-17, so we'll all be there for that time period and I'll be driving from mid-MO and hope to do a loop, maybe first to DC before, then up to Boston, return via NH/VT then upstate NY, Great Lakes to Chicago, then back to mid-MO.
We've done the route to DC at least a dozen times in the last 5 years, so I'll just be getting there as usual now and we'll probably be there for five days doing things in the area and seeing family, same with up to NY, no biggie. However, it's been years and years since I did the CT to Boston run, so looking for suggestions north of Hartford, and then ideas for the route home. Time is not an issue - I'll be leaving MO on September 30, arriving in Boston on October 11 to pick up DH at BOS, then drop him back at BOS on the 17th with no need to push getting home, but would like to get back on/before October 27 as a good target.
Ideas! Let's here some things to do, see, and that my 8 year old will enjoy. I can plan to start in Hartford as early as October 7 if there are a lot of things to do/see between there and Boston, or as late as October 10, just heading up in the day. Most of my Boston sights are laid out, but I welcome ideas on Boston too since I might have missed some good things!
