We are a party of 8 (2 grandparents, 2 adults and 4 kids) arriving in August and need some help - we are not familiar with NE and budgets are not huge.
Looking at TA we have drafted up the following trip:
Arrive NYC - 2 days
Head to Cape / Newport for say 4 days - would like to base ourselves in one place rather than multiple hotels
Head to White mountains for 2 days
Head over to Burlington for 2 days via Waterbury etc
Head south and stay at a Vermont farm for 2 days
Head to Boston for a final 2 days
Drop off car and take train to NYC
Does this seem too much travelling - looking at the forums we don't need a car in Boston, but flights are in and out of NY. We wondered whether we should go to Boston from NY first and then hire a car. Does anyone have suggestions?
We also wondered whether we should drop the White mountains and just visit the mountains near burlington / stowe?
