I know this is probably an impossible question to answer and may get lots of conflicting opinions, but here goes:
I am thinking of a 10 day holiday in New England in the last 2 weeks of October.
We would fly into Boston from England so a couple of days there is practically a must.
For the remaing 7 days or so which area would people recommend based on the following cirteria:
We will be driving a rental car (easy reach of Boston please)
We have a 5 year old daughter (must be safe and not too crowded)
Love the coast and scenery, nice towns, colonial type buildings
Would like to sample authentic New England food
My wife prefers higher end hotels (with character) to rental /self catering properties !
Ideally we can take in a Bruins game if the schedule allows.
Told you it was a tough call.
All suggestions much appreciated,
