My parents and I are going to be driving from New York to Boston in mid-late August. We are not American and have never been to Connecticut/Rhode Island/Massachusetts so although i have been madly trying to look up information online and in books, we are still fairly clueless.
What would you suggest as the best places in CT. ? I am interested in experiencing the 'small towns', as well as pretty sights. Just a general New England experience i suppose.
Does this sound like a good idea:
Day 1) Drive from New York on the I-95 till it becomes the 395 then drive up to meet the 169? Is that even possible, and if so where do you suggest we spend the night on the way.
Day 2) the 169 to pomfret (or somewhere around there) and drive on to Providence.
Day 3) Providence to Newport
Day 4) Newport to Provincetown
Day 5) Provincetown to Boston
I can add an extra night in somewhere. Have i missed anything amazing or should i swap any destinations? I also donít want to stay anywhere exceedingly expensive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
