1. Re: Visiting New England for the first time next summer.

when exactly are you coming?

here's your itinerary:

arrive at Boston. stay three nights in the city. I recommend the Marriot Long Wharf. no need to have a car. take a cab from the airport to your hotel.

pick up a rental car, somewhere. drive to North Truro on the cape. spend 3 nights there.

drive from there to Newport, RI for one night.

drive from Newport, RI to Newburyport, MA. One night there. Or two nights at Blue on Plum Island:

from there drive to Ogunquit. One night there.

drive to Bar Harbor. Two or three nights there.

drive back to Boston. drop off the car, fly home (after one or two more nights on Boston).

16 days will give you plenty of opportunity to visit the best of New England. You can spend a few days in Boston before touring.

Here are a few places that you might consider visiting. Since you are from Rye make sure to do a daytrip in Rye, New Hampshire! One of my favorite drives includes a ride from Hampton Beach, NH to Ogunquit, ME via Ocean Blvd via New Castle, Rye, and a stop in Portsmouth, NH then to Nubble Light in York, ME and a walk along the marginal way in Ogunquit, Maine.

Here are just a few places besides Boston that you can research for you holiday in New England....

Salem, Massachusetts

Rockport, MA

Newburyport, MA

Concord, MA

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Ogunquit, Maine

Kennebunkport, ME

Portland, ME

Boothbay Harbor, ME

Acadia National Park, Maine

North Conway, NH

Franconia Notch, NH

Meredith, NH

Stowe, Vermont

Burlington, VT

Stockbridge, MA

Mystic, Conneticut

Watch Hill, Rhode Island

Newport, RI

Woods Hole, MA

Chatham, MA

Provincetown, MA

Good luck in your planning!
