Taking a New England Trip
All You Can See

Question: We are three senior citizens planning a trip for the year after next to New England.

We would like to see as much as possible in 10 days.

This year we drove to Yellowstone and covered 11 states.

We would like to do the same for this trip.

Go one way and come back another. Do you have any suggestions, we are coming from Pittsburgh PA.
