Four days a month we head off in the van to go to destination unknown. We always tend to keep our road trips in the New England area though. From New Hampshire to Vermont and even New York, we just drive along random routes, avoiding highways when we can, and simply enjoy all that the New England area has to offer. As a New England Travel Blog we enjoy sharing our experiences along the roadways in New England. We bring you places to eat, places to relax and places to simply enjoy the natural beauty.
This 34-mile drive is one of the most impressive panoramic of the New England. There are no amenities and an even cellphone signal, but the attractive flock of trees along the highway is highly rewarding. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the place annually.
You will be fascinated as the thick pedestals of leafy short-lived trees transform from summer green into vivid shades of autumn. These fugacious plants are blended with the lively green leaves of coniferous trees, making the highway as one of the most spectacular and admired destination.
The Kancamagus Highway is absolutely accessible enticing all passersby and adventurers to relish the place. You will also experience the uphill zigzag road, which is almost 3,000 feet above sea level just to reach the crest of Mount Kancamagus.
The Casco Bay Islands
Another great place to visit in the New England is the Casco Bay Islands, which is a union of islands that spreads from South Portland through Machias Bay.
