Our USA Road Trip 2016!






It has been on the back burner for a while now, but I can finally talk about our next big road trip. My friends and I will be visiting the USA again this year. Last year we visited the Southwest USA, more specifically California, Nevada and Arizona. You can take a look back at our road trip from 2015 here.

This year the journey will take us to the east coast, namely New England and New York City. While I wanted to wait with this post when our departure comes, so that I could announce a break, I decided to go with it earlier so that I could show you my plans, and eventually get a few tips from my fellow US readers. (Thanks to Jack for already giving me some tips)

First of here is a map of the planned road trip. We will be there for 15 days from Oct 18th to Nov 1st.


This is where we'll spend the nights, and what places we plan to visit
Oct 18 - Danvers
Oct 19 - Portsmouth (places we plan to visit are Salem, Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, Ipswich, Newburyport and Portsmouth)
Oct 20 - North Conway (places we plan to visit are Portland Head Light, Portlanf and North Conway)
Oct 21 - Burlington (places we plan to visit Montpelier, Stowe and Burlington)
Oct 22 - Manchester (places we plan to visit are towns along Vermont Route 100, Woodstock, Manchester)
Oct 23 - Oct 27 - New York City
Oct 27 - Narragansett (places we plan to visit are New Haven, Mystic and Narragansett)
Oct 28 - Plymouth (places we plan to visit are Newport, Cliff Walk and Plymouth)
Oct 29 - Nov 1 - Boston (places we plan to visit Cambridge and Boston)

Again, like last year we will be renting a car and touring the country. I hope the weather will be nice and that we'll get to see some of the beautiful fall foliage this region is known for, even though we will be traveling past the peak. I'm also looking forward to the little towns and the countryside, as well as big city life in NYC and Boston.

So that's it for the update. If you have any tips for me let me know in the comments below. "Through My Lens" and some other posts will be scheduled and posted throughout the two weeks. I also hope to do some "On Location" posts from our trip while we are still there. Thank you all for stopping by.

  3. Gosh this is a trip to look forward to Mersad! I do remember your excellent coverage of your last trip to the US. If the next year goes as quickly as the one just past, you'll be off before you know it 😀

  6. I've never toured that part of the country myself, so I'll be eager to see it through your lens. Maybe fall will delay its arrival for you. Happy travels to your and your traveling companions!

    1. I hope so Linda. Though I'm afraid the leaves wont be as bright and colorful as they can be. But I'm looking forward to it anyway.

  12. It's a beautiful time to visit the east. We have a few maples along our lake that are just finishing their colours. But it's nothing like those. - Margy

  13. I hope you have a magnificent trip!
    If you can, visit Acadia National Park in Maine. I saw humpback whales for the first time there. And get some delicious Vermont maple syrup.

  17. Awesome! So you're in New England now? Such a beautiful time to visit! I'm in Bennington, VT and lived in Burlington for many years. Hit me up if you need any recommendations for places to stay (or to photograph)... I actually just wrote a little post about where to take photos in southern Vermont. I'm not expert at photography, but I do know a lot about Vermont:) http://backroadramblers.com/fall-photography-southern-vermont/
    Enjoy your visit - can't wait to see your photos!

  18. How wonderful, Mersad! You'll be going right by the little town where I grew up, 6 miles south of Danville, Vermont. I look forward to seeing the pictures from your trip!

  19. This sounds like a wonderful trip, Mersad! The autumn color might be past peak in New England but there will probably still be some color. When you are in NYC go to Central Park as the trees will be turning color there. Bethesda Fountain in the park is beautiful to see. I loved Portsmouth, NH and blogged about it. There are some beautiful lighthouses nearby. Check our my blog under the labels I have for Maine and New Hampshire. Of course I have a lot of blog posts about NYC--hope they will also be helpful to you!

  21. I am excited about this trip for you! The perfect time of year to visit New England! Can't wait to try to catch up on your posts and see everything you did, and enjoy your amazing photos! I will be slowly taking a journey up through those recent posts! Some time in the future, do plan to visit Virginia!
