Northeast USA Road trip - Leaving from Niagara Falls
The girlfriend and I are looking to take a last minute road trip this long weekend for us in Canada (leaving Friday and returning Tuesday - we both have Tuesday off as well). We were thinking of taking a road trip along the east coast of USA, stopping in a few cities for a day or so. We were planning to leave Friday and drive straight to Washington DC and begin making our way back toward Canada. As it is about 8 hours to Washington I don't think we would benefit going any further up the coastline.
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for which cities to stop in for a day or 2 that would make this trip worth while.
We have thought of spending a whole day in Washington, New Jersey, Boston and possibly Rhode Island or Maine as our final destination before heading back. We are not interested in going to NYC or Philly as we have already been there.
We are interested in sight seeing and being outdoors (hiking and stuff like that). We would like to check out some touristy areas.
Thank you in advance
