So I think we're going to do a last minute road trip from Philadelphia to Boston and back. Please help us plan.
I saw this
but want less focus on Boston, DC, and NYC, and more focus on other places between Philly & Boston.
We specifically DO NOT plan to stop in New York City because we've seen it plenty of times and also I don't plan to drive through.
We'll start early tomorrow morning from Philadelphia, stop somewhere during the day, and end up in Boston around dinner time. Where should we stop?
On the way back, we will leave Boston on Saturday afternoon, spend the night somewhere along the way, and then by Sunday night drive home to Philadelphia, giving us another 24-hours or so to hang out somewhere. Where?
Just looking at the map, Providence or Hartford are places that we might want to check out although I know nothing about either. I don't know what towns to stop in or what to do while there in such limited time and would greatly appreciate the input. Hotel suggestions for our two nights in Boston as well as for the one night we can stop somewhere else are also appreciated.
We like: food, culture, outdoor markets, the outdoors in general, walking around a lot, relaxing. We're not big fans of museums but would do something particularly unique. Thank you for any and all suggestions!
