I did that trip 3 years ago.

They also close on Labor Day. There are some on the coast of Maine that open year round or late in the season and that is a very scenic area near Acadia NP. Always call ahead. Roads tend to be narrow in town and in fair but not great condition. Look for routes that take you through upstate New York and into upper New England. Avoid the metropolitan areas of the northeast and preserve your sanity while driving. Take your time, talk to people and you will find that each state can be very different culturally and politically. You will also enjoy the trip more if you do a little research about the history of some of the towns. I always liked reading roadside historic markers. I hope this is what you were looking for.
Dennis brings up great points. There is a DVD called "Monumental" in search of America's National Treasure produced by Kirk Cameron. I just got my copy in the mail yesterday. It traces the steps, hardships and terror that a tiny band of religious outcasts who founded this country faced. It begins in Europe of course and walks you through the travails of the first immigrants.

Cameron, during the filming of this documentary found obscure and mostly forgotten historical markers and monuments along the way many in Eastern Massachusetts. This is a true account of their journey unclouded by political opinion just historical facts. This will be a great Christmas gift for any youngsters out there because they sure as Hell aren't being taught this in school.
This DVD may help others decide where they can mine history while traveling throughout new England.

Best Regards,
