White Mountains or Cape Cod

Jump to last reply

Im trying to plan next summers vacation and am stuck between the two destainations or splitting my time between both. I live near Washington DC and have 7-10 days. I know ones a beach destination and the others the mountains and we like both. Mainly we like quaint towns and good restaurants, spectacular scenery, places you can find solitude, and spending a lot of time outdoors. I know the Cape has the National Seashore, which interests me a lot, especially with the hiking trails and "possible" unspoiled beaches. The White Mountains, however is prolly gonna have the more spectacular scenery and cooler temperatures along with that "up north" feeling. I've driven through the Whites but would like to go back mainly to drive up Mt Washington and see the sights of Franconia Notch including the Flume Gorge. So, which area is less crowded and/or less traffic? Which has the nicer towns? And which has more to do? Water based activities are out because one member in our party cannot go on boats.
Thanks
