We are planning a trip this summer to New York City and New England. I have never been to the northeast part of our country before (saving a sort layover in NYC) so this should be an interesting experience. It sort of balances out our recent trip to the west and we will be going during our first anniversary (if we needed another reason).
We will fly into New York (actually New Jersey) and spend a good three days in the city. Then we will rent a car in Stamford, CT and drive up the hills and mountains of the northern Appalachians. On the way we will stop in a Shaker village that has been turned into a museum. We will then drive over to Maine and enjoy the Lobster Festival and the Farnsworth museum in Rockland. Then we make a final drive into Boston stopping in Exeter to see Kahn’s library. We will spend a little over two day in the Boston and Cambridge area.
If anyone has any suggestions on what we should see, where we should eat, or what we should read along the drive please let me know.
