Thought I would post an update as to our "final" itinerary for our Aussie Grandmother/Mother/daughter trip. We have all become addicted to this wonderful Trip ADvisor, and our final picks have all been helped out by your many kind suggestions... thanks to you all! While our itinerary may not have "the best" of everything, or be to everyones liking, it fits in with the places we want to see, and the things we want to try and do.
We arrive NYC 31 Aug, have 4 nights at Radio City Apartments.
Depart Grand Central for stamford on morning of Thurs 4 sept, collect Hertz Hire car, and make our way that day up to Lenox, MA. (maybe Litchfield, Kent, or Washington Depot for lunch??). OVernight at Hampton Terrace B&B. Make way to next day over to Salem, MA. Probably drive via the I90, but would like to make a stop in at Concord MA. 2 nights at Henry Derby House B&B, Salem, and we'll do a day trip into Boston, via the Salem Ferry. Leave Salem and spend day getting down to Falmouth Heights Motor Lodge on Cape Cod for 1 night. NExt morning, drive to Newport RI for mansions tour and Cliff Walk, then make way to Niantic for 2 nights - Inn at Harbor Hill MArina. Visit Mystic, casinos, and Griswold Inn at Essex amongst other things. On final morning, do a Yale Tour, then deliver car back to Stamford, before catching train back to NYC for 1 last night.
Phew! We are all so excited... Cant wait to see your lovely part of the world!
