I *think* I have the first part of our trip sorted out...
Arrive JFK approx 3.30 on the 3rd. Collect rental car and drive to either New Haven or Mystic CT (any opinions on either place?)
Stay the night there and explore a bit the next morning - would like to see Yale! Then later that day head to Newport, RI and stay there for the night of the 4th and perhaps take a trip to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket the next morning.
Next day head out to Cape Cod and spend the day/night there.
From Cape Cod we were thinking to head up through Concord and out to Woodstock - am I right in my thinking that this is where to pick up the Kancamagus Highway so we would drive on that to North Conway?? Or Montpelier?? Which would you recommend. I would like to do some shopping at the outlets but we would have a night to stay in either place.
My next part of the journey is a bit fuzzy... We would like to go to Bar Harbour and get up early for the sunrise at Mt Cadillac abut don't know which route would be best to get there.
How does this sound- hope I have posted in the right forum - it is really from North Conway that I am confused but then the advice I have seen on other forums from you all seems just amazing so I thought I would put the whole first-attempt-at-the-itinerary for this trip here to see what you all think!! THANK YOU!
