We will be driving from Boston to Portland in September 8 to 12 of Sep. I will rent a car with my girlfriend in Boston and fly out from Portland at the end of the journey. The below is our rough plan for:
Mon 10 Sep - Explore a couple of towns in VT in the morning and head towards White Mountains in the afternoon. Lodge somewhere near White Mountains.
Tue 11 Sep - White Mountains - hiking, activities etc.
Wed 12 Sep - Leave WM after breakfast and head towards Maine coastal towns. Sleep in Portland or a town nearby.
Thur 13 Sep - Explore Portland old town & lunch. Drop off the car at the air port and fly out at 1.30pm.
Please can you provide any tips or suggestions that we can use to get the best out of this road trip? We are mainly interested in visiting the “must see”, if you like, attractions, beautiful landscapes and add in a couple of hikes/kayak rides if possible. It seems that in Maine/Vermont/New Hampshire alone has hundreds of amazing places to visit. But would appreciate some help with narrowing them down to a realistic and feasible amount!
