Planning New England Coast Tour for June, focus on scenery/nature

Jump to last reply

Hi - I'm just starting to think about this and your information will help to focus our planning. We're 50's/60's, active and relatively fit, travelling without kids, and particularly enjoy exceptional scenery and nature (e.g. are birdwatchers). Also moderate hikes, interesting small towns, good food, maybe a museum or 2 and a little bit of shopping for crafts and other unique items.

We wouldn't do all of New England. Are coming from Canada (cross border at Buffalo) and I'm thinking we might head to Cape Cod first then work our way up to Bar Harbor and Acadia before heading back through Montreal. Planning on 10 days, maybe up to 2 weeks if warranted.

I really like to avoid big crowds and congestion and am hoping that by visiting in June, these will be somewhat minimized?
