Agreed, if you give an idea of what your more interested in we can probably narrow it down. I.e. mountains, ocean, history, hiking versus in car site seeing, amusement parks etc.

Personally I would start in Burlington, VT and head for white mountains (franconia notch and kanc hwy), followed by Bar Harbor. From there you can go to Baxter SP if you want to, it really is a great place but it and moosehead lake are another days drive each way. Coming back you should stop in Freeport, ME (LL Bean flagship) and Portsmouth, NH before heading for Boston and Cape Cod. Finally, when you start to head home if your a history person Sturbidge Village is a must. You can cap off you tour with a stop at the BigE, it's the largest fair in New England and you can sample all the best food we have to offer. I know I skipped Mysitc never been a big fan unless you would like to stop at one of the two Indian Casinos.

Hope this helps, good luck.

If you plan on visiting Cape Cod, try not to arrive on a Friday afternoon or leave on a Sunday afternoon as the traffic trying to get over the bridges to the Cape can be quite bad.

Thanks all, for the feedback. We are not interested in visiting the bigger cities or the tourest traps. Have done Boston, Nantucket. Interested in smaller out of way sights. Woods, hiking, maybe some great restarants. Backroads, water, we do like history. Any comments on how to route this trip appreciated.

You like history? How about Fort Ticonderoga on the NY/VT border then a followup to the Shelburne Museum?

Sturbridge Village, Plimouth Plantation, White Mountains (Danforth Bay Campground is a great place to stay), Lowell, MA (mill history), Lexington, Concord, Minuteman National Park, Carlisle State Park (local park, great for walks, has an ice cream stand and is a working dairy farm), state parks offer varying degress of water access and amenities, Bar Harbor KOA (Maine) has great ocean kayaking.
