suggestions for a drive thru

My husband and I will be heading to Martha's Vineyard for a wedding, arriving in NY on the 7th and spending the 9th-11th at Martha's Vineyard and then back to NYC by the 13th. We plan on driving from LGA to Boston and then down to the wedding, then back to NYC. We'd like to see Boston, but not spend more than a day and a half. We enjoy local food and customs as well as flea markets. Any suggestions for an interesting, not too touristy, itinerary?

B&B for New Years with a great dinner?  (4 Answers)

Folks,

After spending a wonderful New Years Eve last winter at a B & B in Woodstock, VT (Lincoln Inn at Covered Bridge) which serves an optional great dinner, we are looking to repeat that experience this year.

Any recommendations for a moderately priced B &B or INN with a great dinner available?

Thanks in advance.

Strategy for hotel rooms without planning  (6 Answers)

For almost all previous travel I arrange hotel stays for the entire trip before we leave home. This time we would like to be free to move on when ready and stay longer when we enjoy the place.

The plan is to drive from Kitchener, Ontario to Coastal Connecticut and back.

What strategy do people use to find hotels along the way? What time of day to start looking? Are there many visitor information centers? Visit individual places to ask or phone?

Thanks for tips on strategy.
Martin

Connecticut summer trip :inns and B&Bs  (5 Answers)

Hello! We have two house exchanges organised for August and September 2009, the first one in Stamford, the second on Cape Cod. The third week in August, between exchanges, will be spent driving around Connecticut, staying in inns or B&Bs. Any help with suggestions for places to visit and not too expensive accomodation along the way would be greatly appreciated. We are a couple in our sixties, interested in seeing quaint small towns and villages, either along the coast from Stamford, or in the rural north east. We want to avoid driving in busy suburban areas - we live in rural France so I'm afraid we'd find driving in American cities very nerve-wracking! Thank you for your suggestions.

Why is connecticut state in this state?  (11 Answers)

It is my 9th month stay in this state (after moving from New Jersey) and I am surprised by few things: a) Price for things in a supermarket in New Jersey is equivalent to "Sale" price of same in Connecticut b) On same day, gas/petrol price is atleast 30+ cents more per gallon between the states (costlier even compared to New York city) c) Although a person has valid visa for 1 or 2 years, he has to buy a driver's licence for seven years fees [6 to 5 years extra charge] d) More construction sites [sorry, more construction red boards) in express ways, and hence more catches and fines e) Not enough public transport f) long traffic signal waits g) Trouble-some weather as pollen attack in spring and severe winter. Positives please??
