New England road trip for foodies

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a New England roadtrip for this October. We are especially looking forward to good seafood: oysters, lobsters, clam chowders... My husband prefers a coastal trip, and I do not mind seeing some leaves. We would like to stay at B&Bs, visit little towns, and eat eat eat. We have three full days and here are my questions. First, we are from Philly. Should we drive from Philly through New York and CT or is it wiser to fly to Boston and rent a car? Second, what is the best route: should we do Cape Cod or drive north to Portland, ME and further north to Acadia and then down driving on US-1, or is there an even better route you can suggest? What are some of the cities along the way that we should stop by? Thanks!
