I am in the planning stages of a summer road trip, on which I will be taking my wife and our two-year-old daughter. This will be our daughter's first road trip (to-date, our car trips have been less than an hour long), and I am seeking ideas/advice on New England region road trips that would be appropriate for a girl of her age. We would like to do a loop of New England, making stops at child-friendly attractions, and I would like some advice on how we can best accommodate our daughter. For example: (Considering our daughter needs) Are budget hotels/motels better than B&Bs or Inns? What is the longest period we should be on the road at any one stretch? Should we child-proof our car (and how should we do it)? What is the best way to take a "rest stop" (e.g. should we stop at a traditional rest stop, or at a food establishment?)? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
