Prepping To Hit the Open Road

On of my favorite ways to travel is by car because I can control the journey. Whether I decide to stay on the beaten path, or follow the road less traveled I love packing up the car and hitting the road to discover someplace new. I’m currently prepping to visit 3 states I’ve never been to and to see the famous fall foilage of the Northeast. I’ll be making stops in New Hampshire, Maine, and Rhode Island in 2 weeks!

My last big road trip was back in March when I went with some friends to Montreal, so I’m pretty excited to get on the road again and to see the the beautiful fall foilage of the Northeast during the peak of the season. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The crisp, cool air is a much welcomed change after hot summer days. I love watching the leaves change colors and listening to the crunching sound of fallen leaves when I walk. Plus, I get to pull out my favorite boots, cardigans, and blazers and pick up new pieces for the season.

The first stop on my trip is North Conway, NH, which I’ve heard is absolutely beautiful this time of year. I’m planning to walk the trails, get in some hiking, and take a ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad. Then its off to Portland, Maine for a quick day trip to visit lighthouses and have a yummy lunch of  lobster rolls and NE clam chowder before driving down to Newport to explore the city and visit the winery. I’ve reserved B&B’s for my trip to make it a bit more cozy, and because I’ve never stayed at one before and I’ve been hearing alot of good things about them.

Pre-Trip Check List (2 weeks until departure)

  • Book B&B Accomodations
  • Prepare a packing check list
  • Ensure my car is serviced and ready to go
  • Ensure my emergency roadside kit is stocked

I havent planned too many things out for my trip because I don’t want my schedule to be so bogged down that I’m not able to relax and enjoy the scenary, but if you have any recommendations on things I must see and/or do in North Conway, NH, Portland, ME, and/or Newport, RI I loved to hear all about it.

I’m working my way through my list of 101 Things to do in 1001 Days :)

Love AGT :)
