driving from Newington CT to Concord, MA

Hi Everyone,

I have never been to New England before this trip. I am so excited!

My mother, daughter and I will be visiting relatives in Newington. for a little bit and then on to MA

I have read that parts of northeast CT are so pretty and want to know if there are any "must sees" along a route to Concord.

We have all day to drive it and love smaller scenic roadways.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Not sure about must sees but I'd suggest I-84 east to I-384 in Manchester

When 384 ends bear left onto Rt. 44

take 44 until you hit Pomfret then continue north on 169

In North Woodstock turn fight onto 197 until you hit I-395

North on I-395 to Mass Pike (I-90)

not sure when you're coming but good route for foliage, farm stands, antiques

I agree with brookerme. The Pomfret/Woodstock area is BEAUTIFUL. If you are able to take Rt. 198 North through Southbridge, MA and then on to Sturbridge, MA you can stop in Sturbridge Village and see some more historical New England attractions. You can easily access the Mass Pike from there.
