Your Motorhome Holiday
Day 1: Arrive New York - Preston (160 miles)
Pick up your motorhome in Newark and round Long Island Sound before heading northeast towards your first overnight campground. It’s recommended to visit the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport where this flamboyant circus man was once Mayor.
Suggested Campground: Hidden Acres Family Campground
Day 2: Sandwich (125 miles)
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.
Suggested Campground: Scusset Beach State Reservation
Day 3: Plymouth (55 miles)
A loop to visit the Kennedy family’s home town of Hyannis and the John F. Kennedy Museum 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. (To explore the historic and interesting city of Boston, we suggest you extend your stay here and use the convenient MBTA commuter rail service in and out of the city. As an alternative, you may want to start this itinerary here by collecting your RV from Boston.
Suggested Campground: Pinewood lodge Campground
Day 4: Salisbury Beach (145 miles)
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. We recommend you also visit Salem, the site of the infamous witchcraft trials in 1692.
Suggested Campground: Beach Rose RV Park
Day 5: Bar Harbor (235 miles)
Briefly returning to New Hampshire, the itinerary brings you to Maine and the dramatic scenery of the Atlantic coastline. Your destination is Bar Harbor on Mt Desert Island and area surrounded by the cliffs and seascapes of Acadia National Park.
Suggested Campground: Bar Harbor/ Oceanside KOA
Day 6: Mount Blue State Park (160 miles)
Inland to Maine’s capital Bangor and then on into the state’s picturesque interior. The destination is the Mount Blue State Park. Moose and other wildlife live here as well as numerous red squirrels and the more elusive black bear and coyote.
Suggested Campground: Mount Blue State Park
Day 7: Bethlehem (100 miles)
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. We recommend you visit the summit of Mount Washington on the 1869 coal-fired cog railway.
Suggested Campground: Beech Hill Campground
Day 8: Gifford Woods State Park (125 miles)
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. We suggest you opt for one of the campsites in one of the state parks such as Gifford Woods or Ricker Pond State Park.
Suggested Campground: Gifford Woods or Ricker Pond State Park
Day 9: Arlington (60 miles)
Probably no one captured the golden age of Americana more memorably than Norman Rockwell. Many of the covers he created for the Saturday Evening Post in the 1940’s and 50’s were painted at home in Arlington, Vermont. His home is now The Inn on Covered Bridge Green.
Suggested Campground: Camping on the Battenkill
Day 10: Gardiner (140 miles)
Your route takes you into New York State and follows the Hudson River south. This will bring you to Hyde Park, 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.
Suggested Campground: Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Gardiner
Day 11: Depart New York
Today is your final day and it’s time to return your motorhome. Drive the 75 miles back to the depot and then make your way to the airport for your flight to the UK. This would be a good opportunity to spend some time in New York seeing the sights. Speak to your America Consultant about adding some extra time in the ‘Big Apple’.
