HI, Family of 4 (kids under 12), thinking of spending 2-3weeks in Aug on a road trip starting on the East coast (most likely landing JFK, flights not booked yet).
We have been reading through the TA posts and it is clear that we would not want a car for large cities like Boston or NYC, however we would ideally do the following:
-land JFK or Boston
-2-3 days exploring city
-rent car, tour ....this is where we need ideas!
-return car in NYC or Boston
We are interested in some historical sites (children friendly), but also nature and ideally would love to alternate busy sightseeing days with more relaxing days.
Have looked at 2 potential routes: Boston-Cape cod-white mountains, or Boston/NYC/Washington. Is there a way to combine the 2, or is this unrealistic? We would rather choose to skip stops than have an exhausting trip.
Any suggestions or pointers to previous trip reports are welcome ,,,
