Day 1

Arrive New York City

NOTE: you may choose to add extra nights in New York at the start of your journey or, as you return to New York to fly home, you could stay extra nights at the end. Or perhaps do both!

New York Hilton Midtown
Day 2

Preston

135mi / 217km

Pick up your Motor Home from one of Cruise America’s New York locations and round Long Island Sound before heading northeast towards your first overnight campground. Visit: then Barnum Museum in Bridgeport where this flamboyant circus man was once Mayor.


Day 3

Mystic Seaport, Newport & Sandwich, Cape Cod

125mi / 201km

Back down the scenic eastern shore of the Thames to visit Mystic Seaport. This once great whaling port and shipyard for fast clippers is a splendid living outdoor museum with many old ships and examples of New England life two hundred years ago. Visit: Newport, Rhode Island, where the massive summer mansions of the Vanderbilts and others were the setting for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s – and Robert Redford’s – The Great Gatsby.


Day 4

Hyannis & Plymouth, Cape Cod

55mi / 89km

A loop to visit the Kennedy family’s Hyannis would be a good idea before heading north again bound for Plymouth where the Mayflower landed the Pilgrims in 1620. Just south is Plimoth Plantation, a serious recreation of the Pilgrim’s 1627 village and way of life. Visit: Plymouth Rock on which, in legend but maybe fact, the Pilgrims first set foot on what would become America.


Day 5

Lexington, Salem & Salisbury Beach

145mi / 233km

Head north and bypass the city of Boston. An interesting stop would be at Lexington where the first skirmish started the Revolutionary war and where Sam Adams and John Hancock were awakened by Paul Revere on the most famous of his rides. Another surprising stop would be at North Salem in New Hampshire which is the site of America’s 4,000 year old Stonehenge. Visit: Salem Massachusetts, the site of the infamous witchcraft trials in 1692.


Day 6

Bar Harbor, Maine Coastline

235mi / 378km

Briefly returning to New Hampshire, the itinerary brings you to Maine and the dramatic and scenic Atlantic coastline. The destination is Bar Harbor on Mt Desert Island and surrounded by the cliffs and seascapes of Acadia National Park. Visit: Abbe Museum at Sieur den Monts Spring and take the ferry to Little Cranberry Island.


Day 7

Bangor & Mount Blue State Park

160mi / 257km

Inland to Maine’s Capital Bangor and then on into the state’s picturesque interior. The destination is the Blue Mountain State Park and its campground. Moose and other wildlife live here as well as numerous red squirrels and the more elusive black bear and coyote. Visit picturesque Webb Beach and nearby Centre Hill. Children enjoy a visit to the park’s Nature Centre.


Day 8

White Mountains & Bethlehem

280mi / 451km

As you cross into New Hampshire again, the mountains get higher. Many you’ll be passing are 4,000 or 5,000 feet high with Mount Washington, at 6,288 feet, dominating the dramatic scenery as you drive further into the White Mountain National Forest. Your overnight stop should be planned at the Beech Hill Campground near Bethlehem. Visit: the summit of Mount Washington on the 1869 coal-fired cog railway. Fine French dining can be found in pretty Bethlehem.


Day 9

Killington & Gifford Woods State Park

125mi / 201km

Soon after crossing into Vermont, you’ll approach the year round resort surrounding Killington Peak. There’s a lot to see and do here before moving on to the suggested overnight campsite. Opt for one of the campsites in one of the state parks such as Gifford Woods or Ricker Pond State Park. Visit: world famous Dartmouth College on your way through Hanover.


Day 10

Arlington

60mi / 97km

Probably no one captured the golden age of Americana more memorably than Norman Rockwell. Much of the covers he created for the Saturday Evening Post in the 40s and 50s were painted at home in Arlington, Vermont. His home is now The Inn on Covered Bridge Green. Visit: the Norman Rockwell Exhibition


Day 11

Hyde Park & Hudson River

140mi / 225km

Your route takes you into New York State and follows the Hudson River south. This will bring you to Hyde Park. This was the birthplace and home of Franklin D Roosevelt and where both he and wife Eleanor are buried. As a thought for lunch, the Culinary Institute of America is also located here and four gourmet restaurants are open by reservation. Your Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Lazy River Camp site is just 23 miles on at Gardiner.  Visit the homes of both FDR and Eleanor in Hyde Park.


Day 12

Journey Home

95mi / 153km

Allow a good two hours to get back to the Cruise America depot in New York, especially if driving in rush hour. Return your motorhome, make your way to the airport and check in for your flight back to the UK.
