I’ve only just joined this forum and would appreciate some local advice from this friendly bunch of experts.
My wife and I have recently retired in the UK and will be visiting New England from 4th – 18th October 2011 flying in and out of Boston. We are staying in Boston for the first three nights and then hoping to explore further a field – depending on how the foliage is developing.
Many of the places mentioned on these forums appear to be ideal for those wishing to get out of their cars and cycle or hike etc. – neither of which we will be doing (oh, to be young again!!) – but I’m unsure if they are as interesting to the less mobile amongst us.
We are looking for attractive scenery, relatively straightforward driving, interesting towns & villages and places with perhaps some historical or cultural attractions.
I was wondering if there are particular places to stay for 2/3 days that are useful bases from which to explore or to keep moving after a one night stop.
Any information gratefully received.
