I am going to be arriving in the US on the 28th Feb and leaving on the 8th March both entering and leaving via NY. I am going to be in NY for the first weekend and was then thinking that from the Mon-Fri I might do a trip around New England. I am hoping you can help/point me in the right direction!
1) Would it be worth me hiring a car in NY and driving from there or would I be better off catching the train from NY to somewhere else and picking a car up there?
2) In terms of a route/itinerary how much do people think I could fit in during the 5 days? I have been to Boston before and although I would love to go back its not necessary for this trip if that helps? I would like to see Maine and Vermont especially some of the national/state park areas (the amateur photographer in me!).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks in advance
