2011 New England Fall Foliage Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I am trying to plan a trip to New England for my mother and I and we have finally gotten a rough itinerary together. We're trying to make the best use of our time out there. We have 3 weeks so we're going to start in the north and head south. If you could let me know what you think of this itinerary, whether we're spending too much time or not enough in places, if there's some places not worth going to, etc. Keep in mind these are just "base" stays for us, as we are going to be doing day trips and exploring the areas around our base.

2 nights in Stowe, VT
3 nights in Bethel, ME
4 nights in Bar Harbor, ME
4-5 days along the coast between Bar Harbor and Portsmouth
2 nights in Chatham, Mass (Cape Cod)
3 nights in Mystic, CT

Not sure where to stay along the coast after Bar Harbor. Is it possible to "wing it" along the coast and just drive and try to find a place in an area you like or just a plain bad idea?

Also, if you have any recommendations for moderately priced accommodations and/or great places to eat in these areas, they would be greatly appreciated!
