Still More "Fall Foliage Itinerary Help" October 2011

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip next fall and can be very flexible as to dates and times.(Later on will check sources mentioned in forums to try to guesstimate "best color time"). 8 -9 days inc travel days would be about right. The tips already given--esp about starting N and heading S along with the reminder that distances between states is short enough to cover quite a bit of ground--have been very helpful.
We will be flying in/out of Logan(but this could also be negotiable) and would like to spend some time (no more than 2 full) days in Boston. Definitely will rent a car for the outside of Boston segment.
We have already visited Acadia NP twice--both times in Oct --so have no intense desire to reprise.Therefore, we are thinking that a Mass- NH--VT focus might make more sense--maybe with a RT itinerary from Boston that doesn't cover same ground --like a loop?
We are active seniors who enjoy hiking, back roads, tasty eats, and history. As far as accommodations we prefer cottages(cabin) rentals if staying more than 2-3 days or B and B inns (non Victorian or super swanky). Might it make sense to limit the stay to 2 places and make day trips from each?

Any tips would be appreciated and in advance, thank you!
