2 Week New England Road Trip (travelling from UK)

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 2 adults and our 8 year old son, travelling from the UK to spend the last two weeks of August 2014 in the New England area (dates are fixed). We will be flying into Boston and hiring a car for the duration. To give you an idea of the kind of travellers we are…
We LOVE scenery (coastal/mountains) , nature and quaint small towns with historic architecture.
We are NOT interested in shopping malls, aquariums, museums.
The only definite ideas of places we want to visit so far are; Boston (probably just one day), Cape Code, and we would really like to go as far north as Acadia National Park. We would be very grateful for advice on (scenic) driving routes, must see places to visit, recommended lengths of stays in different places and reasonable accommodation suggestions. We are also active, so any tips on great cycling/walking spots we can take in (that are also suitable for an 8 year) would be much appreciated.
We are all looking forward to sampling the seafood, so any great restaurant advice (not too pricey though!)?
Finally, we would like to go whale watching… where would be the best place to go in the area to do this (is August even a suitable time of year to do this?!) ?
