Last minute road trip revamp due to park closures. Advice needed!

Jump to last reply

Due to the closing of the National Parks, we now have to redo all our plans for a road trip, which had previously included Acadia National Park. We have two weddings to attend, a week apart. The first wedding is in Philadelphia and the second wedding is in Whitefield, NH. We leave Oct. 12. Our new thought is to drive from Philadelphia to State College, PA, where my husband and I lived 26 years ago, just for old times sake. Our interest is in possible fall foliage (although I know we'll be somewhat late for that), scenic drives and moderate hiking. We will spend a couple of days hiking around that area and then drive to NH. Along the way I was thinking of possibly following a "cheese trail" in Vermont and driving the scenic route 100. I love rural areas, but dislike touristy towns loaded with gift shops and fudge stores. I have no idea what there is to see on the long drive between State College to the start of the cheese trail, which looks to be in Plymouth, VT. I usually spend a lot of time doing research for our trips, which I had done for the Acadia trip, and now I'm a little stressed having to throw a new road trip together, find hotels, etc. at the last minute. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Thanks,
Laurie
