I agree with Christina and would turn this into a road trip as much as possible.

That said, have your spoken to your ortho about your trip? I would start there. We can all relay experiences with being hurt, but every injury is different and we are not doctors, so take everything with a grain of salt, IMO.

Thank you, Christina. Yes, the decision has been made and reservations cancelled. I'm not happy but finding other things to do thanks to wonderful friends and family.

Because it's my big toe that is broken I am in a stiff soled shoe so NYC and Storm King/Bannerman Island were easily out. I may do a day trip to Boston where I can park close to a museum I haven't visited before, The Isabella Stewart Gardner. That will allow me to sit periodically.

Again, my thanks for your honest and thoughtful reply. It's the pits, but it's the smartest thing if I want to get running/walking again soon!

All the best to you!

The doc has weighed in. Being an athlete, and a klutz, I've already been treated at this practice for a broken wrist and broken knee. They are very honest and blunt and then send me on my way to do with their advice what I choose. This time I choosing to be smart and stick close to home. (with perhaps one small museum visit on a. day trip to Boston)

Thank you for taking the time to respond!

Thanks for taking the time to reply! I do have a free place to stay in Falmouth, ME, just outside Portland. Given that, I have spent quite a lot of time there. I was hoping to get somewhere new but may end up in Maine after all!

A lot of museums have wheelchairs so if you choose to visit one, you could opt for that.
