I've noticed a lot of topics posted about travelling to New England in October, but I'm feeling overwhelmed reading all the great advice so wanted to ask for suggestions for my specific timeframe.
My husband & I are driving down to Dover New Hampshire from the Toronto area to visit friends in October for a few days. We have from Oct 12th - 16th to explore, making sure we are back in Toronto on the 17th. I realize we are a bit late for the fall colours, but our dates aren't really flexible so we'll just have to accept that!
Where should we go? We are open to NH, Maine or Vermont but would rather just pick a couple locations so we aren't driving around all the time. We have varied interests including visiting quaint shops, enjoy fine dining, we love the outdoors and are very active. Oh, and we rarely get to see mountains or ocean! Basically a little bit of everything would be great.... but would prefer to avoid larger centres...we get enough of that at home!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
