We are thinking of traveling from Iowa to the east coast this fall. I would like to go to Buffalo (visiting friends), then up to Burlington,VT (friends again) and then over to the Maine coast to check out the scenery. I've been looking at maps and can't identify an obvious route from Burlington through New Hampshire to Maine. I would appreciate any suggestions or warnings. Thanks. Terry Smay

You will love it out here.Just keep in mind that fall foliage is a popular attraction and campgrounds fill fast.

If you prefer Interstates, take a look at I-89 to Rt-101 thru Manchester, NH to Interstate 95. This would be the quickest route to ME.

If you prefer back roads head for NH Rts 302 & 112 thru Conway, NH on your way over to ME.

Obviously the foliage depends on when you're coming thru and many campgrounds close shortly after Columbus Day.

Hi cyko, the route Bob mentioned is the most 4 lane restricted access route. Using I95 to get into Maine is okay but if you don't want to be in a traffic jam, do not try to leave Maine on I95 on a Sunday afternoon. Every time we have ended up crawling along for about an hour. I thinking taking 2 across from Montpelier would be a beautiful ride. I don't know about hills, etc. with an rv.
