Hello, I'm going on a bit of a road trip after this term. I have at least a month, depending on my last exam, including the entire May.
I've been searching the internet (and this great website!) for tips on where to go and what route, so I've got a pretty good picture so far. I made a map on google, so everyone can see:
Technically, I have to end up in Toronto at the end of the month, and I was originally thinking about either going in a circle back to Toronto after Washington, or continuing down the coast to Southern US, but I decided that I don't have the time for that (and my impression is that upstate Pennsylvania and Ohio aren't worth it, though I might be wrong). Instead, I'll probably take a plane from Washington, ending the trip there.
The trip will be a road trip (rented car) from Toronto to Boston (or maybe NY), after there I'll be taking a train (I gather that's a good idea?).
Basically, my main question is: Have I missed anything that I should see?
Also, I want to drive the most scenic routes possible considering the limited time, but I'm not sure what those will be.
About me: I'm European, so Canadian or American historic places are good for me (but bear in mind that some things probably won't impress me as much as it would North Americans - e.g. "old" things, which could seem new'ish to me :) ).
I'd like to do a lot of photography on the way (I'm a beginner trying to get serious), so anything beautiful, scenic, etc. would be great.
I like hiking (but I don't have serious camping equipment), so I've been thinking of going to Mt. Washington in NH. Good idea? What else is recommended? Any short (1-4 hour) walks along the way?
I probably will have more questions as time goes by, but so far that's it.
Thank you for any suggestions!
