About eleven or twelve years ago we did a trip around New England where we drove. We would drive four or five hours a day, stopping when we felt like it. We had a rough itinerary, but it was very soft, and in fact we modified it along the way, as things came up.
We drove from Rochester, NY to Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and back to New York. We visited place like the winter Olympic facilities in Lake Placid, the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream factory, and maple syrup factory, Mt Washingotn, Stephen King’s house, Acadia National Park, a submarine museum, Salem Mass, the MIT Museum, The Baseball Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown, and even more. All of this was done in a week long driving trip.
Now we are looking at doing it again. I was considering April, but my wife showed more thought than I did, and pointed out that we would likely still be facing questionable weather. Also many things might not be open that time of year. The time we did it before was the week before memorial day. It was quiet. Kids were in school. We had many of the campgrounds to ourselves. It was very relaxing. So while I was thinking we could do it in April as part of our anniversary celebration, it might be better to wait till May for this trip. We can always do something else for our anniversary.
