Family Holiday Fly Drive Northern New England

15 nights

This family-friendly holiday explores the northern part of New England, taking you up the coast of Maine and then into the mountains. Explore the city of Boston then head to Springfield, the birth place of Dr. Seuss. Try white-water rafting, kayaking or quiet float trips then head to the mountain village of Stowe for some hiking, biking or just a visit to the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory! Finally head to Acadia National Park on the northern coast where you can go on a horse ride, cycle the trails, go out in a lobster boat or enjoy a nature walk with a park ranger.  Plenty of family fun to be had on this family fly drive holiday in New England.

If you would rather visit the beach, Cape Cod and Connecticut, please see our southern family fly drive holiday for details.

Day 1

Boston

Fly into Boston for a three night stay

Boston is a splendid city for adults and children alike.  Not only are there the museums such as Children’s Museum, the Science Museum, the Boston Aquarium and the Franklin Park Zoo — all of which are wonderful but there are carousels, the famed Swans to ride on Boston Common and Castle Island to explore as well.
3 nights in Boston

Day 4

Boston to Springfield

Basketball, the world's most popular indoor sport, was born in Springfield in 1891. One of the world's most impressive sports museums, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is the ultimate fan experience, combining history and interactive exhibits. In Agawam, Six Flags New England is a classic US theme park, with scary coaster rides, including the five-storey high Gotham City Gauntlet Escape from Arkham Asylum.  Springfield was also the birthplace of Dr. Seuss. You can wander through the Dr Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden for a look at the Cat in the Hat and Yertle the Turtle cast in bronze. The city served as a major arsenal during the Revolutionary War, the Springfield Armory National Historic Site, displays an enormous collection of small pistols.
2 nights in Springfield

Day 6

Springfield to Charlemount

A day in the open air today! Try white-water rafting, kayaking or quiet float trips on the Deerfield River. Or, head for the trees on a zip line canopy tour.
1 night in Charlemount

Close
Day 7

Charlemount to Stowe

As you head for the hills today, we recommend a diversion to Hildene to the Lincoln Family Home just outside Manchester. Listen to the 1,000-pipe organ; see one of President Abraham Lincoln’s famous stovepipe hats. Alternatively detour to Molly State Park where you can climb the fire tower for 360-degree views. The trail is short but you climb 500 feet! Another option is Bromley which has a zip line, water and alpine slides; 

Stowe is a very pretty mountain town which among other things is the home to Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream and you can tour the factory.   The award winning Recreation Path leads to all sorts of activities and there is also an alpine slide and climbing wall, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking. You can also stay in the Trapp Family Lodge, still run by the Von Trapp family of 'Sound of Music' fame.
3 nights in Stowe

Close
Day 10

Stowe to Sunday River

From one mountain village to another.  Today is a lovely drive through the White Mountains and we suggest you stop at Bretton Woods to ride the steepest railroad tracks in North America to the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington.  When in Sunday River, there are ziplines, a Eurobungy Trampoline, not to speak of golf courses, mountain biking, hikes and nature walks.

2 nights in Sunday River

Close
Day 12

Sunday River to Sebasco

There are so many wonderful places to stay on the Maine Coast all the way from Bar Harbor in the north (close to the magical Acadia National Park), Camden in Mid Coast (one of the prettiest villages) to Kennebunkport (where President Bush has his summer home) on the southern section. 

4 nights in this area

They all have their charms and local attractions which you will find on the Maine pages of this website. A few options might include:

Acadia National Park is one of the USA's most popular destinations. Ride horses or cycle the trails; go out in a lobster boat; enjoy a nature walk with a park ranger; climb Cadillac Mountain.

At Owls Head Transportation Museum, near Rockland, many of the 100 historic aircraft, cars and motorbikes are in full working order. Go for a ride in a Model T Ford!

A Windjammer Cruise from Camden:  2 – 6 nights as well as a day cruise.
