Boston to Washington, D.C., and back
We fully understand the potential disruption that Covid-19 could have on trips next year - but please reply as if there will be no disruption. We are seeking ideas and inspiration. If our trip must be cancelled, we will look to make this same trip again later in 2021 anyway.
Hi all! My family and I have booked to fly into Boston from the UK on 26th April 2021. We will fly back to the UK from Boston on 10th May. We want to take a road trip during this time, with the end destination being Washington D.C., before returning back to Boston. At this moment in time, we are not interested in taking trains to travel between the two places.
We would like to incorporate a stop in NYC either on the way there or the way back. We have been to NYC before, so would not need a great deal of time there, but we liked it enough in the past that we'd like to visit again, albeit for a shorter period of time. We have also seen most of the main 'sights' there, so reaching these isn't a big deal. We have also debated stopping in Philadelphia, but this isn't a must.
We are undecided on how long we'd like to spend in Boston, NYC, (possibly) Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. - please feel free to tweak these lengths of stays yourselves. We obviously don't want to spend too long in one place as the journey is quite a marathon.
As well as the big cities, we are also interested in scenery/nature, and would love to incorporate some walks or scenic visits into the itinerary. My mother is a big fan of the seaside, so a trip to a nice, quaint seaside town (no particular area specified) is also a must.
We appreciate that this is a long journey spanning some 900 miles round-trip. This means there are also constraints on time which we also appreciate. However, we would love some ideas, place names, route guidance, or even full-blown itineraries which would help us plan our trip to this part of the world.
Thanks so much in advance.
