So in total on our road trip USA/Canada holiday we stayed in 8 different hotels, spent many many hours on the road and saw 6 US states (New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine) and 2 Canadian Provinces New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. So here are the New England Road Trip photos....
We mostly stuck to one main road, Interstate 95, which took us along the coast, through pretty New England states and up to the border of Canada. We picked our stops that were just off this Interstate to make the driving part easier. The idea was to set off relatively early, drive for a few hours and get to a stop.
I loved this 'Victorian Ladies Inn', we didn't stay here, but wished we had! The building is pretty typical of Newport, all colourful, wooden buildings, so cute!
We enjoyed exploring the streets and stopping for Ice cream in the cutest little ice cream shop!
We were super excited that there was a health food supermarket right over the road from our wee cabin, so stocked up there for dinner!
It was certainly an adventure in itself figuring out how to get to the border and across. The rental car people say they will let you take a car over the border but then quote you the most extortionate price its just not possible. So we dropped off the car in Bangor and actually paid for a cab to take us the 3 hours across the border to collect another rental car in Canada, this worked out a lot cheaper! There is nothing much in Maine and no public transport options!!!
We really enjoyed Bangor, felt like a more typical American town. Basically big massive streets you have to drive down, loads of fast food restaurants along the road and huge supermarkets, awesome! We were so excited about Target and Wall mart! saaad! haha.
First stop of course big burgers....
