New England States

Jump to last reply

We are thinking about finally taking a trip to the New England states in September and early to mid October. We will have about a month to spend in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware and New Jersey and will be traveling in a motorhome with a tow vehicle. We are thinking about spending the majority of the time in Maine, NH and Vermont and would like to be there for the fall colors.

We are from the west coast and have never been to these states. We have been to Washington DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York, so don't plan to do much in these areas this trip.

We like scenery, waterfalls, views, and history. We like to do short hikes of up to three miles. We do NOT like big cities or eating out but do want one lobster dinner (probably in Maine). With this in mind, what are the must sees in each of these states?

Where would good base camp locations be for taking day trips? We are thinking about spending the majority of the time in Maine, NH and Vermont and would like to be there for the fall colors.

If there are any campers out there, please suggest campgrounds too. We don’t want fancy resorts. We don’t always have to have hook ups, but will want some private campgrounds or state campgrounds that have hook ups.

Thanks in advance,
Utahtea
