hi there - we are planning a vacation next Summer driving from IL... here's what we have thought so far, but by no means are we fixed... we have never been to the North East and would welcome some ideas of things we should absolutely do... we are particularly interested in ideas as to what to do around Boston (not inside the city itself).... is it worth heading south to Plymouth, or should we just stick to Concord/Lexington and the city of Boston?
We enjoy history, but did visit Philadelphia, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown last year.... we also love beautiful scenery and unique, special experiences that we'll remember... we're all ears to any suggestions that you have regarding must sees / must do's :-)
Leave IL - drive to Niagara Falls
Niagara to Cooperstown (hall of fame)
Cooperstown to ??? (lexington/concord??, Plimoth plantation??)
Boston - couple of days, see the historic sights, watch a baseball game
Head up to Acadia for a few days of hiking, biking, whale watching, etc
Travel cross country through the White Mountain National Forest, ending up in Burlington (I know this is extra driving, but the route was suggested and looks beautiful)
Drive up to Quebec City
Toronto, and watch a baseball game
Detroit, and watch a baseball game
Thanks in advance - we sincerely appreciate any ideas that you may have!
