Looking for some advice on a self drive holiday in New England next May. this will be part of our honeymoon and we will 11 days in the area. Our current plan is to fly into Boston on the 14th of May, and fly out on the 25th. We thought we would spend three nights in Boston, hire a car and spend some time driving through Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Places we would like to visit in particular are Acadia NP, White Mountain area and perhaps also the Green Mountain area of VT. Thoughts at the moment are to drive from Boston to Bar Harbour and overnight here for 2/3 nights, then head across to WM for another 2/3 nights. After this would welcome suggestions of other bases to stay in for the last couple of nights.
We like to take in some walks, perhaps horse back riding, and love to stay in nice towns and get a feel for the place. Also my boyfriend loves to try local beer so we would definately like to take in some microbreweries along the way.
I am posting this in each of the Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire forums as I cannot find a New England forum. Any advice would be very welcome !
