I am really looking forward to my first trip to Vermont in early September. Nights 1 & 11 are the CT portion.
I enjoy beautiful scenery,art galleries, quaint towns. I know this itinerary is quicker than most people would like, but I like a fairly fast pace. Most days are around 3-4 hrs driving leaving time for sightseeing and stops.
1) Philadelphia ( Philadelphia Museum of Art, Independence Hall)
2)New Haven, CT (Old Lyme -Florence Griswold Museum) or should I skip New Haven and stay near Old Saybrook or Mystic
3)Newport, RI (historic center, mansions)
5)Portland, ME (strawberry bank-portsmouth NH)
6 & 7)Bar Harbor (Lulu Lobster, Acadia, Jordons)
8)North Conway, NH (Mt Washington Auto Rd, Sabbaday Falls,)
9)Burlington,VT (Kancamagus Hwy, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tram, Hotel: Handys Extended Stay in Colchester or Hartwell House, Church Street Market, Shelburne Museum)
10)Bennington, VT ( Rt 100 or Ethan Allen Hwy, Mad River Glass Gallery, Warren, Grafton, Hancock Shaker Village? Or,, scenic drive 125/middlebury? , Clark Institute, Norman Rockwell Museum, Hotel: Harwood Hill Motel)
11)Kent, CT (MASS MoCA , Naumkeag house , Kent Falls, Bulls’ Bridge)
Anything else I should add in this area?Edited: 08 July 2012, 16:08
