Re: Martha's Vineyard, Adirondacks, Poconos
Yes, Charlie (and others) have most of it covered, but if you need an "ocean" fix, I would try Block island, RI instead of the Vineyard. Ferries go from New London, CT or Pt Judith, RI. It is smaller and significantly less developed and crowded than either Nantucket or MV. You can approach it from the north coming down from VT, etc. and avoid the I-95 strip for the most part.
Also, the Catskills have some great roads, especially County Road 47 south from Big Indian and Routes 30 and 10, etc etc; and don't forget the Finger Lakes around Watkins Glen, Ithaca,- Great countryside, wineries, and fabulous gorges and waterfalls -- Taughanock, Buttermilk, Robert Treman State Park, Watkins Glen, plus two beauties that go right through the Cornell campus above Ithaca.
Be sure to see the Champlain Valley on both NY and VT sides (Essex (Essex Ferry to VT), Westport, NY) Fort Ticonderoga area, Rt 22A on VT side leading to Rt 17 over the Appalachian Gap; or Lincoln Gap , or Middlebury Gap (Rt 125); or Rt 73 from Ticonderoga Ferry through Brandon (get a sticky bun at Cafe Provence) and over Brandon Gap.
