When and how many days?

Go to North Conway , New Hampshire to shop in hundreds of outlet stores.

There are endless of places to visit between each destination but all depends on your time frame and budget.

Well I'm leaving Niagara Falls on Tuesday and I have to be home Sunday.

That seems like a good place since its tax free plus I get my 10% military discount.

Since you have only 6 days and you want to visit all the places you listed you'll be driving a lot actually almost non-stop. I would forget NJ on this trip. NYC deserves more than a few hours. Heck, each place on your list deserves more than a quick drive through. With such limited time, IMHO, I suggest Providence, Boston and NH. Save Niagara Falls, NYC and NJ for another separate trip.

I also recommend narrowing it down to a couple of places.

In NH also make a stop in Lincoln and Jackson. I also love the Maine coast- Ogunquit, Kennebunkport, Freeport (great shopping also) Camden and Rockland. Very easy to access these places and not a lot of driving.

To compare prices I often use www.kayak.com. Then you book directly on line with specific hotels.

Jeremy, did you decide to have a marathon drive and visit all these places you listed or do you want to have more enjoyable visits while visiting much less? You really need to spend all day in North Conway
