My husband and I will be on the east coast in May and have some free time & a rental car. We will be driving out of NYC (yikes) on a Monday afternoon and will need to be in Providence, RI on Wednesday afternoon.
We enjoy beautiful drives, would like to see the coast at some point, good (but not super expensive) food, scenic locations, architecture, etc. We aren't interested in shopping or museums. We're both in our early thirties. We have heard great things about Keene and Portsmouth and are open to visiting both places. I know this is the New Hampshire forum but would you recommend spending most of our time in New Hampshire or split between New Hampshire and the Connecticut/Rhode Island coast? Or something completely different?
All recommendations (for areas, drives, food, lodging, things to do, etc) welcome!
