New England in late spring?

We had been planning a trip to New England for fall of next year (our first!)from CA, but now there might be family wedding taking place that would alter our plans. As much as I had my heart set on seeing New England for the first time in the fall, I don't want to wait yet ANOTHER year and suggested we go in late spring. What's the best time then? We're in So. California. Any suggestions for routes? Have driven to the Midwest many times but never as far as the east coast. Have a 38 ft 5th wheel. Thanks!

Late Sporing is a hit and a miss for the black flies up north. You can do a search on the net about the best times to avoid those buggers. A stay in New Hampshire or Vermont is always nice but then there's the Mass and Maine shore that's full of history and great sights. The White mountains are a great drive as well.

Being more specific on where you are headed will yield better results

Never heard of these black flies! Are they really a nuisance? We haven't gotten into specifics yet of where we want to go in NE. The usual tourist spots I suppose...Boston, Vermont, Maine....interested in lots of history, love historical sites! Don't have to go down into NYC, although may be visiting some relatives in Philly. Guess we're just looking for general tips about what to see!

The black flies can get so bad they've been known to kill a Moose from having it go under water too long to avoid them. Certain species of adult black fly females are fierce biters, whereas others are strictly a nuisance by their presence around one's nostrils, ears, arms, hands, and other exposed skin areas

If you are going to Phily you should try to get to the Lancaster area.
