I've done quite a bit of reading on the forums these past few weeks, but thought it was best to open up my own topic for some info.
Question is, where to spend our 3 days (9th/10th/11th) in between Salem and NY?
Initially I had always thought of getting the ferry from Boston - Provincetown, heading down the Cape and spending a couple of days in Wellfleet and the last night in Provincetown before catching the morning ferry back to Boston, then a quick change over onto the train and down to NY. I then began to think of the idea of hiring a car in Boston and heading up state to Bar Harbor.
The majoirty of our 3 week trip will be spent in cities, so we were looking for somewhere to relax and chill out for a couple of days.
The beaches near Wellfleet (Cahoon Hollow Beach) look stunning, although I don't know if the town itself has much to offer. I've an interest in photography, so the sunsets on the beach in the evenings and clear night skies would be right up my street.
However I was thinking the trip up to Bar Harbor would have more to offer, with more countryside to see, towns to visit, and obviously the scenery that's on offer at Acadia National Park. Plus a bit more to do at night than whats probably in Wellfleet?
Any advince, tips, info is greatly appreciated.
