Northeast Road Trips – Once the Snow Melts
Last year, we spent a few days of April vacation in New York City, and it was such a great time to visit. It wasn’t too busy, and the weather was chilly but not cold. Drive, fly, or take the bus/train.
I haven’t yet been to Cooperstown, but it’s definitely on our list. My whole family is looking forward to visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, and it’s not too far from our home in Boston.
The hometown of my alma mater (the University of Rochester) is also a great place to visit with kids. The Strong National Museum of Play, one of the largest children’s museums in the world, is a must-visit. Go during May and you’ll get to experience the Rochester Lilac Festival.
We went to Mystic Connecticut this winter before the snow arrived, and it’s definitely a fun visit with kids. Be sure to check out both Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium. During our stay, we stayed at the Hilton Mystic, which is right across the street from the aquarium.
If you don’t live in Boston, spring is a great time to visit. Don’t miss the North End, for the best Italian food around.
Rockport is one of the most fun, quaint towns in New England. While some of the shops and restaurants are only open in the summer season, the spring is still a fun time to visit.
I haven’t been to Freeport, Maine in a while, but we are definitely due for another visit. Just the LL Bean store alone is fun for kids and adults, but there are also lots of other outlets and shops in the area.
Where do you plan to roadtrip to when the weather improves?
