Enjoy the journey.

We traveled to Maine this summer. We were on I95. Avoid the George Washington bridge if you can. A very rough drive with about every door and drawer in the rig opening because it was very bumpy.

We stayed at Bar Harbor campground and loved it. A great place to stay to see Acadia National Park. Going to Cadillac mountain at sunrise is breathtaking.

In Mass, we visited all of Cape Cod. The JFK museum in Hyannis was real nice. Plymouth and Salem are very nice.

If you have Passport America membership which is a great way to save money at campgrounds. The months of July through Sept are very busy for Maine and Mass. Many of the campgrounds do not offer any discounts during the months mentioned.

We have a book called "1,000 places to see before you die" worth the money. It is loaded with places to visit.

If you plan on staying in any state parks you may want to consider to start making reservations soon.

Have fun on your journey.

Cherry Hill Campground in DC is a great place to stay. They have shuttles to the Metro or we just drove to it since it was only one exit up. If you have time to take a little longer route, Gettysburg, PA is certainly a must see. Safe travels.

If you are not planning a whirlwind tour, you have about 2800 miles to travel, and much to see at each stop. I think you need at least 2 nights in DC, 2 in Gettysburg, 2 in Boston, and 3 in Bah Hawbah. 2 weeks might be tight.

In Gettysburg, 1 whole day for a battlfield tour, another day for a tour of the town, the Cyclorama, and the new visitors center. Lots of good CGs there.

In WDC, park at a train station, take the train right to the Mall. The campground will help you out on where to go. KOA in Fredericksburg is superb!

In Maine, make sure you see Scoodic Point! Fantastic.

Have a grand time!
