My grown daughter and I from New Orleans are doing a 5-day Mother/Daughter New England fall trip, flying into and out of Providence end of Sept/beginning of Oct. Areas we'd love to visit besides Providence are: Newport, Kennebunkport, Portland, Conway, White Mts, Kancamagus Hwy, Waterbury, and any points of interest you'd suggest.
Instead of traveling from one area to the next and staying in a different hotel each night, could you suggest an area/accommodations as a base of operation for day trips returning to base at night? A friend suggested Sunapee or Concord? And how would you suggest routing those cities?
AAA has us going from Newport up the coast to Portland, to Conway and Waterbury, and then circling back down to Providence via Manchester and Concord. I'd rather stay in one hotel for 3 or 4 nights instead of a different one each night.
Am I being overly-ambitious? We just can't wait to get started and visit beautiful NH and as much of New England as we can fit into our 5 days.
