First post - my name's Nicolas, I'm from Chicago.
I'm planning on visiting a few friends in Montreal, Boston, Providence and NY in September. I thought I might rent a car in Montreal and try to find a nice, scenic path connecting these cities. My idea was to drive down the Connecticut River Byway, on the border of Vermont and NH.
Then somehow maybe stop midway in Vermont and cross NH to Maine. I heard Maine is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, so I wouldn't mind doing somewhat of a bend. Then down to Boston & NY.
Does this sound like the beginning of a good plan to you ? Can you recommend any itineraries, or must see roads in the area ? Is beginning September a good time to see the region or would late September be better ? I will have about two (maybe three) weeks for the whole trip.
I thank you in advance for your input,
