Just wondering if anyone can give me an idea on where to start!! We were considering a West Coast trip but will probably be a bit beyond our price range so thinking of East Coast instead. I have spoken to Trailfinders and although they were fairly helpful, they told me to look on their website at their road trips and pick out what we want. I didn't see any one trip that I liked as a whole.
We are a family of 4 (1 x 13yr old and 1 x 9yr old)
Travelling July/August 2014
Likes/Dislikes: We want to see a bit of everything really, very vague I know. I think it's that we don't want to just do all museums or all scenery or all beaches if that makes sense.
I've never been to the states, so rather ignorant and probably can't get my head around the vastness of the country, on a map everything looks quite close to each other lol!
We want to visit New York, Boston, Martha's vineyard (only because I believe my favourite film jaws was filmed there!), Salem (thought this might be interesting for kids?), somewhere where we could go whale watching?, The white mountains. Am I crazy to think that we could fit in a trip to Niagra falls (looks quite close to new york on the map lol!!!).
Anyway, any advice would be great. I've never travelled this far before and I want to make sure we make the most of it (hence my probable ludicrous suggestion of Niagra falls).
Also, does the USA have an equivalent of something like the National Trust? Just wondering if we could save money on buying an annual membership to something like that.
Thanks in advance
