OK so we are starting to plan next years's trip.

We are hopiong to go from around the 7th July to 7th August.

We will spend 12 nights at SSR then start the road trip to Boston.

We want to spend at least 3 nights in NY and 7 in the Boston area

But where ti visit en route? (we are in no rush) And where to visit around Boston?

Never been to NY but loved Boston - the science museum, aquarium, duck tours and faneuil Hall all worth a visit. Used a "Charlie" card in Boston - bit like a London Oyster card and the underground system is fab. We stayed at a beautiful Hyatt across the water with water taxis and underground close by - near to the airport with own airport shuttle service. ALso don't know how far you are going but when we went it was Easter and we drove to Killington, Vermont for skiing - there were some gorgeous villages around that area, I would love to go back again in Summer/Fall and see them.

We've done washington DC and enjoyed it.

Also enjoyed Philadelphia and Boston.

As you are driving through Virginia maybe stop at a civil war battlefield if you are into history (we did a tour of them one year as DH like millitary history)

St Augustine in florida as you head north?

We've done several road trip type holidays in US. I used to get the virgin brochure with fly drives in and titan tours (few more companies do them aswell) gives you an idea of key places to visit and what is driveable in a day.

Happy planning.

I love New York and Washington DC. New York is one of my favourite cities of all time. Washington DC isn't as nice to walk around but once you're there, all of the museums etc. are free. Boston was meh. The duck tours are fun and it's a pretty city but a couple of days there was plenty.

If you want to see some real America, try spending a few days in the southern states. Totally different from the North East and the tourist-trap of Florida.

Love Boston we drove from Canada through Vermont. We have driven from DW to Hilton Head on many occasions as we love Disneys Hilton head resort. We like Charleston but prefer Savannah even used the name as my daughters middle name.

We did a Boston to DC road trip a few years ago and enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg as an interesting non-city stop:
