My wife and I will be flying into Boston to start our Honeymoon and couldn't be more excited. We're hiring a car and driving down to NYC, and thought we'd stop off in New Haven or somewhere else along the way. I know it's only a couple hours between Boston and NYC, but we've got 2 nights to kill and would LOVE to see as much scenery as is possible. I know we could easily spend a lot of time exploring, but not much we can do about since we're already booked.
So my question is, is there somewhere else besides New Haven we should stay for one of those nights and is there a scenic route we could take that isn't the big standard highway connecting the two cities?
I really appreciate any help anyone can lend, can be pretty difficult trying to organise something when you've never been before.
