This years LONG trips are out, so decided after looking at my states ridden in map to hit New England States in a 4 day loop. Going to leave PA and head for Conn., Mass. RI, Maine, VT & NH. So far it looks as though I'll stick close to hwy 1 and the water most of the ride, shoot back hwy 2 so I can ride up Mt. Washington.
Anyone have any "must see" places that I should likely meander to?
Holy Crap, Batman! Rte 1 in Maine during summer? Yikes! +1
Okay, scenic. But... traffic?
It sorta depends on whatcha wanna do, "motorcycle" or "tourist"....
Just my personal preference, I look for motorcycle roads. The coastal route in nice off-season, but can be stop 'n go during the summer.
The ride up Mt. Washington can be memorable if you luck out and hit the good weather.
Come to think of it, it is more memorable if you don't hit the good weather.
Must-see? What do you like? Cultural, history, geologic? The Owlshead Transportation museum is really neat. Check out the "auto-car".
My preferences would have me heading for ME, NH, and VT to the exclusion of MA,CT, and RI. But that's just me. Maybe there's some neat stuff you want to see down there. But I'd go there in an RV. For motorcycling, I'd head for the hills.....
