Hi - we're going to become leaf peepers between 5-22 October 2009 and are trying to decide on an itinerary.
We've booked our flights and just about decided on the accommodation for our first night in Boston. Am posting this on all the forums of the states I think we will be travelling through.
What we are thinking of at the moment is:
Night 1 in Boston, picking the hire car up the next morning and having a leisurely trip along the coast taking in Salem and Portsmouth on our way up to kennebunkport for the next night.
Next day up to Portland and on along to Jackson for 2 nights, then
2 nights in Stowe,
2 in Bennington,
2 nights in Litchfield,
2 in Newport followed by
2 nights in Yarmouth and finishing off with
2 night and 3 days in Boston before flying back home.
we'd really appreciate any advice of whether we're choosing the right places to stay at to get the best from our trip or if we would be better going by different places, or even if we are being over ambitious!! We prefer to stay in small B&Bs in small towns (but with plenty to see and good choices of restaurants)
Any comments appreciated - cheers
