[VacationFilter] I want to go on a whistlestop tour of the US Northeast.

I moved to Boston about 8 months ago, and when I arrived here I promised myself a vacation to really familiarize myself with the area. Now that I have the money and vacation time stored up, I realize that I know a lot less about the area than I thought I did, and don't really know where any of the "holiday" spots are.
The plan thus far:
Drive up to Bar Harbor, take the Cat ferry to Nova Scotia. Spend a day or two in that area, and then make my way back to Boston by stopping every day at a different city/location and spending a night.
So... where do I stop? I've got about nine days for the whole trip. I'd ideally like to drive no more than 2 hours a day, stop at a city, wander around, get to my hotel (bed and breakfast?), repeat the next day. My goal really is to take in the local flavor, eat some good food, and take lots of pictures.
