New England Trip

Jump to last reply

Im thinking about taking a 10 day vacation up to New England next summer from the Washington DC area. I have explored much of Maine and a lot of Upstate New York. I have been though parts of New Hampshire and the Rutland and Woodstock areas of Vermont. I had an intial interest in going to Cape Cod, but I have decided to skip that, since im not much of a "beach" person and would rather go to the mountains. I know theres a lot of "quaintness", but I would like to mainly focus on the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I am still considering, however, throwing in Boston and the area around it like Glochester (Cape Ann) to see the coast line with less crowds than Cape Cod and the Revolutionary War sites of Lexington and Concord as im also a history buff. In Vermont, I have not yet visited the areas around Stowe and Burlington. So, im looking at possibly spliting my time up between three places, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Boston Area, and possibly the Stowe/Burlington, Vermont area. I have driven through the White Mountains twice including the Kamacagus Highway, but haven't stopped or done anything there other than to get out and take pictures. I just want to spend some time to visit the area in "detail" like drive up Mount Washington, the Flume, Franconia Notch, hikes, etc,etc. But, i ve already seen the area overall. I haven't been to Stowe or Burlington, VT. But, there seems like there is more to do in New Hampshire or the Boston area. Plus from what ive heard the mountains are more dramatic in New Hampshire than in Vermont where it is more rolling countryside.
Thanks-
