New England states

Planning a trip to the north east from NC this summer. Any suggestions on parks or routes to maximize which states we visit. We only have 10-14 days so I know it will be tight. We have already been to DC and parts of Maryland so we can stay clear of there.

If you have a short amount of time, Acadia National Park in Maine is a must see. It tends to be crowded, so don't try to rush. Take the time to appreciate the beautiful rocky Maine coast. Enjoy lobster rolls or steamed lobster at one of the many lobster pounds.

The area around Boston also tends to be crowded; but if you like history, there is a lot of it there.

Here's a lobstah suggestion. A lot of the grocery stores, even the lobstah pounds will cook up the lobstah for you for take out. We did that for most of last summer. WE even stayed at a campground, Sunset Campground in Harrington, ME. where the owner would cook & deliver them to your door for $7lb. We would get 5 or 6, eat dinner, then pick the rest for a lobster salad the next day. Hard as I tried I couldn't create a lobster shortage. If it's history your looking for, stay at Minuteman Campground outside Boston, and day trip by towed. They have all the info at the campground, even how to take the train. Most things in Maine are pretty close together, so by centrally locating yourself you can drive the towed to see the sites.

Do some map studying of PA. Parts of PA (omish country) is VERY pretty and their grand canyon is such a pretty drive (especiall in the fall). Watkins Glen in Upstate NY is a great place for a day hike, they have a state campground connected to it and just down the road is the five fingers lake system. Worth a visit. There really isnt much in CT at all and Southern Mass isnt much different, so if you drive north from NC into PA then into NY THEN turn east towards VT,NH and into Maine (if you really want to drive that far) it is just my opinion but if you want to avoid urban areas then stay west heading North untill you have passed DC, Baltmaore area, NJ, NYC, CT and southern Mass before turning east

Most of our camping is in New England as we live in Mass. We spend most of our time on the coast of Maine, in the White Mountains of NH or down on Cape Cod. From time to time we go to Vermont or northern Maine. When we do go to NY or PA we tent to cross the Hudson up near Newburgh NY rather than towing over the George Washington or Tappen Zee bridges. Been to Arcadia a couple times but we like the southern coast better, Old Orchard, Wells etc. if you are going to Boston, Boston Minuteman is a nice place as mentioned above. Have a great trip.
