Road trip from toronto to boston area

My boyfriend and I have 8 days and want to explore boston, cape cod, possibly maine. We are world travellers and love (ad)venturing off the beaten path. We chose the new england area because we are looking for beautiful vistas, serenity, good food, culture (we are both musicians), and history. (A little romance is also on my list... Don't tell my boyfriend!) We would rather spend quality time in a few good places than rush around trying to see "everything". Any suggestions?

Hi Susannah0808,

When do you plan on making this trip? Time of year can influence recommendations.

With only 8 days, you'll have time for Boston / Cape Cod OR Boston / Maine, but not all three (unless you want to get into that "rush around" mode). If you're more into rocky coastlines, then Maine is the better option. Cape Cod is more sand dunes than rocks, and is beautiful in its own way.

Hi Zed,

We are planning a last minute trip Aug 9 to 17/18. We are more interested in mingling with the locals, if possible, than fighting the tourist crowds. Back roads. I'm thinking Maine might be more our style. And a possible stop in the Finger Lakes on the way. B&bs fine. Not wanting to spend more than $200/night on accommodation. What do you think?
