Need General Ideas For New England Trip Sept 2008

Jump to last reply

I love to plan vacations, and I'm starting to think about next year's trip to New England. We were going to go to Alaska but decided to postpone that for $$$ reasons. Anyway, the plan is to fly into Boston (cheap, non-stop flights from Orlando), rent a car, spend a couple of days with family in Bristol, RI, and a couple of days with more family near Bangor, ME, and sightsee in between.

We'll be going in September, 2008, for about 2 weeks. The exact days and length of stay are flexible, but we want to avoid the summer tourists and the leafpeepers as much as possible.

So I'm looking for suggestions of places to go in the area of Rhode Island, Maine, and parts in between. We do NOT like big cities so even though I like history I probably would rather avoid Boston. We do like nature, parks, the coast, fishing boats, mountains, small towns, local food and crafts, and so on. Easy hiking would be good - rock climbing would not be good.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
