New England Planning – tips please

img_3398With travel on hold due to the current global crisis it has at least given me some time to plan further trips ….fingers well and truly crossed. I have flights booked for October to Boston to do another  fall  trip but this time a different circuit. The focus of the trip is coastal and foliage.  Below is an outline of the trip and I would appreciate any comments or recommends for stop offs and accommodation please. Feel free please to comment if you think I have included something that doesn’t warrant a stop off etc. We will be there for two weeks.

Day 1 Collect hire car from airport, drive to Kennebunkport taking the coastal route, stay one night. We will have flown from UK so feel this is far enough to drive.

Day 2 Drive to Bar Harbor stopping off at Camden and possibly Rockland. Stay 3 nights in Bar Harbor taking in Acadia National Park and perhaps some of the other towns on Mount Desert?

Day 5 Drive to Bethel, perhaps going via Elsworth, Belfast, Winthrop for foliage. Stay overnight in Bethel.

Day 6 Drive to Stowe, Vermont via Crawford Notch. Stay in Stowe four nights taking in local drives for foliage.

Day 10 Drive to Hyannis Port, stopping off at Henniker Covered Bridge, Concord and Winchester.

Day 11 Passenger Ferry to Nantucket, stay over night in Nantucket.

Day 12 Ferry back to Hyannis Port, stay in Falmouth 2 nights

Day 14 Drive to airport stopping off at Plimoth Plantation.

Any help greatly appreciated, thank you for reading.

  1. While you are in Plymouth, the old graveyard has some interesting markers from back when the pilgrims were the only inhabitants. I would say skip the rock, but most people have to see it. It is a disappointment.
