Hi Linda and Don --- Which states do you want to visit? How long will you
be able to take to do this drive? Are you planning to go east to Maine?
-- or west to Tanglewood - then north through Williamstown and on up through
VT? ( Williamstown has the fantastic, excellent Sterling and Francine Clark
Museum which has a world-class Impressionist collection and Georgian silver
that is a knockout -- and every summer they do a special exhibit to go along
with the summer stock theatre there. Also, there are good restaurants in
town, and Williams College - which also has a museum) You could also go
through NH, VT (stopping in the Woodstock area - lots to see with great food
and antiques) and up to Burlington - (see Shelburne museum, Burlington/Lake
Champlain/Adirondack area -- Burlington hosts the Mozart Festival every
summer - usually presented on the porch lawn of the Shelburne Inn
Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks to the west.. Everyone sits on the lawn
and picnics, listening to extraordinary music as the sun sets over the mts.
Amazing...!) and on up... or go you could go up to NH - see the Whites,
Presidentials, the Notch - old man in the mountain, the flume, then drive
across the border and go into VT just above Littleton, NH.
Let me know your thoughts -
We love the Maine coast (It's fantastic and has great Inns and you could take a day trip to Monhegan Island from Pt. Clyde -- ride the mailboat -- There are not cars on the island or atleast when we went, there weren't any) It's an artist colony in the summer and neat to walk around. -- many sea animals -- OR you could go on up to Bar Harbor/Mt. Desert Island - also wonderful Inns, food and fantastic National Park (a bit further is Campobello Island and FD Roosevelt's summer home both as a child and into his adult life -- It was here that he contractred polia) There are wonderful, typical New England villages wandering up the Maine coast on route 1A and any time you tire of that route, you can go west and on to the Maine turnpike. Sorry, I get so excited - there is so much in New England. I'm sorry this is disjointed!
Let me know how I can help. Regards, Susie
