I'll have to agree, "Not nearly enough time." In 2011 it took us almost 6mos. to go from Maryland to San Diego. So much to see, so little time.

I agree. We did Key West to Maine in 4 1/2 months and we missed much more than we saw. Unless accumulating miles and ticking off states is your goal I think you need to slow down.

Bar Harbor is a must. The view is worth it and also go to Cadillac Mt.

Thanks everyone. I will be coming back to review these suggestions through our trip.

I also appreciate everyone saying that we won't have enough time but it is what it is, right? We will unlikely be able to venture this far again so we will see what we can see, realizing there is a lot more out there. And who knows, maybe we will be able to make another long trip in a couple years.

Please keep the recommendations coming and suggestions for other sections of the trip will be appreciated.

When going East to Maine, stay north, avoid Chicago at all costs. Do the "upper part of Mich.". Head toward Niagra Falls, etc. Then drop south, and Westward toward Springfield, Il. From there, angle East again towards I 75, then south. Return via i 10. Many things to see and do along the way. We stayed at the Kentucky horse park, near Lexington. Really nice campground and interesting museum. As you enter Fla. the "Stephen Foster state park" is a must see. Angle over to the coast, or gulf for waterside campgrounds. Or, go down the middle toward Ocalla and "Silver Springs", glass bottom boats. Most of all, Have Fun...

Sounds like a great trip. Here's one thing you might want to include in your Maine visit. For years we went to Maine the first week of October Grouse and Woodcock hunting. We always managed to spend 1 or more days at the Fryeburg Fair. Fryeburg is basically on the Maine/New Hampshire border and the annual fair is, I believe, the largest in New England. We loved seeing the different lifestyles geared to the events of THE FAIR.

Spend some time on the website and I think you will want to add it to your itinerary. Here's the link: Fryeburg Fair > Home

Take your pasports so you can see the falls from the Canada side, much better view over on that side. Jim

We did your trip four years ago, although it took us four months We had a few places on our "for sure to see" list and did not travel with any schedule. We found lots of neat things to see and do everywhere we stopped. This country is amazing. We would stop at the visitor centers at the borders of most states and go through the literature and find neat things. We would watch bill boards. We would look on the internet. Looks like you want to see the Fall colors. We did also and it was neat. You will really enjoy your trip.
