Hopefully the area experts can assist us with our travel plans. As we plan on travelling through various different areas I will post my enquiry on several different forums .
We would have at least 6 weeks to do the following but could take longer if it is felt the extra time is needed. The time would be September/October 2011. We are not into art galleries or heaps of museums. We love natural scenery and generally when on holidays walk each day till the legs just will not go any further. We would fly into New York where we plan on spending approximately 4 days. We then thought of catching the train to Niagara for 2 days where we would pick up a hire car to move on to Quebec and Quebec city. From there to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Maine, Boston then New York for our flight home.
As this is the time of Autumn folliage we are unsure whether to travel to the North first leaving our days in New York to the end.
We have arranged home exchange stays (for 6 to 7 nights each home) in BoothBay Harbour and Searsport/Maine – Ripple Cove/ Nova Scotia – Cape Pele/New Brunswick and Quebec City which we are really excited about. We wou ld plan on stopping off at spots between our exchange homes. We are really excited about our travels to this area of the world and would appreciate any information, suggestions and advice.
