Recommended Car Trip routes

We are planning a 10 day trip to Niagara Falls and the northeast US this coming Summer. We are flying to Boston and then a car trip to Niagara Falls, then to Green Mtns. in Vermont, then to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, then to Bar Harbor, Me, and finally down US Rt. 1 back to Boston. We are interested in any ideas or recommended routes to take.

Niagara Falls (Canada)   Vermont (VT)   New Hampshire (NH)   Maine (ME)   Boston (Massachusetts)   Mount Washington (New Hampshire)   Bar Harbor (Maine)

The first leg of that trip (Boston to Niagara Falls) is the longest.  So I would suggest a few stops on the way there - perhaps Old Sturbridge Village (Massachusetts) (an hour west of Boston -it is an outdoor museum) and somewhere in the Finger Lakes region which would be another 5 hours.  From there it is only about 3 more hours to Niagra Falls. Then on the way east, drive along the shore of Lake Ontario to Rochester (New York) and then go to Burlington (Vermont)  Drive down US7 to the Green Mountain  If you go this way it avoids 'backtracking' but it adds several hours to the trip, so you will probably want to break it up into three days, perhaps staying up by Rochester one night and Burlington a second night.
From here it is about 4 hours to Mount Washington and Bar Harbor is about another 4 hours.  On the way back to Boston, you might want to stop at Strawbery Banke Museum (which is an outdoor living history museum) or you might want to visit Salem (Massachusetts)before you go back to Boston.
