With this being our first ever trip to The US, we would like to see a realistic amount of New England.
I would prefer to do a loop up the coast to Maine, then inland or alternate route back to New Haven.
Would depart from New Haven on the 12th August, then would need to be in Durham area for the 22nd August, then back to New Haven by the evening of the 23rd.
We are used to driving long distance( albeit on the LHS) but want a relaxing break, with good views and sights after dropping our daughter off at College.
We would like to get to Mt. Washington and the Cog Railway, but furthermore, are open to advice as there seems so much to see, but time is a little limited.
Interest-wise, we enjoy nature reserves, quaint coastal towns and good views. in general, would like to see a cross section of what NE has to offer.
Will not need to include Boston, as we will be there for 2 days at the beginning of August.
