Yes, I know I haven’t finished writing about our last trip out west, four months later. But! We’re planning a short jaunt up the East Coast to Acadia National Park and are heavy in the research stage. Below is the general itinerary we’re looking at. Please comment or send along any tips you have!

  1. Intermediate stop between Charlottesville and our first target of Beverly, MA. Considering Hershey, PA, or Mystic, CT
  2. BEVERLY, MA: two days in Beverly, visiting a very special blog reader!
  3. ACADIA NATIONAL PARK: five days in Bar Harbor. Hike a lot, drink a lot of beer!
  4. CAMDEN, ME: just a night here enjoying the pretty harbor town
  5. CAPE COD: a couple nights, maybe in Provincetown and/or Dennis Port
  6. Heading home, stay at the intermediate stop we didn’t choose for stop #1
