Hello from Australia.
My husband and I are travelling to New England in the first week of October 2013 for his 40th birthday. We were going to do a couple of day trips out of Boston, but after researching this beautiful region, we are now planning a driving tour!
So, this is what we have planned so far....
We will leave Boston, and explore the coast, staying in Kennebunkport for one night. Then we will drive up to Portland, across to the White Mountains and to Jackson for one night. On day three we will explore the Mountains in the morning, drive through to Woodstock VT for the night.
I was thinking of driving from Woodstock and on to Concord for the night, but cannot seem to find any upscale lodging for October 2013 that does not carry with it a two night minimum. I realize it is peak season, so this will be hard to find. We are only going to be in the US for 10 days, and so while I would love to spend a few days in Concord, it will not be possible this time around. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Also is there a pretty driving route you could recommend between Woodstock and Concord, and perhaps another location to stop at for the night between Woodstock and Concord?
Thanks kindly for your help!
