We are going to visit the North Eastern states in September and I would like to know of places of interest to visit. We are going to follow the fall colors starting from Maine.

That will be such a fun trip! My husband and I went a few years ago about the 1st half of October and was amazed by the colours! Simply breathtaking!
This is the route we took and I would recommend it, we liked it so well.....would like to do it again!
Went along the coast to visit some lighthouses....there are several and worth checking out!
Stayed our 1st night in Bar Harbor----which is near Acadia National Park. We were able to get a bed and breakfast, but I would recommend checking into that before heading there---we were very lucky to get a room! Its a cute town, lots of shops and seafood---very fun place to just walk around.
Then we went north to Baxter State Park---we camped. We were able to walk part of the Appalachian trail in the beauty of nature. We spotted lots of moose in this area.
Hopefully, that will give you some ideas. Since I don't know what area you will be near.
Go to your local library, they should have some travel information available to view.
Or go to www.visitmaine.com----they have free travel guides to send for!
Hope you have a fun and safe trip! Maine is one of my favorite states! Very beautiful!
Don't forget to take your camera. You'll be glad you did. Send thriftyfun a picture too! :)
U should visit Mass. and go to boston, and the cape cod. they are beautiful places to see. In boston u should go to fanual hall,and quincy market. They are big tourist places and tons of history there. On the cape u will see lots of history. U will see lots of beaches, and great boats. This place is a place to go see. I lived in mass all my life until i moved to TN 2 years ago. Hope u will check out this places too on ur trip. U should also think about starting in vermont first though it is great in the fall and the mountains are to die for that time of year if ur taking lots of pics this would be agreat place to start. Well hope u have fun and hope this helps u out some.
I hope you have a great time on your New England vacation this coming fall. I have lived in a quaint New England town (Keene, New Hamphsire ) for 20 of my 28 years and still enjoy the Fall season the most. The colors of the leaves in NH are quite beautiful and we also have the 2nd most climbed mountain in the country (or world I can't remember) called Mount Monadnock. The movie staring Robin Williams "Jumanji" was filmed on our central square. Should you extend your stay until October around Halloween time we have "PumpkinFest" where we once held the World Record for most lit Jackolanterns in one location at one time. NH has reasonable prices on lodging, the seafood anytime of year is outstanding and our trees, leaves, scenery and windy and uphill roads should allow for much fun.
Have a great time --- and try to check out New Hampshire.

Hi, I used to live up there and the best place to travel to see the colors and beauty is along the Kangamangus Hwy. I probably didn't spell that right, but if you get a map, you'll find it...mostly in New Hampshire. It is truly worth the trip! Enjoy!
Hi, I agree with the other folks, Boston and the cape are very nice, NH with its mountains and scenery are beautiful.
I live in Maine, so of course think it is terrific as well.. There are beautiful lighthouses, beaches in the southern part. In the midcoast area there is Freeport with LL Bean open 24/7. Kinda cool. Freeport has many many little shops. If you keep coming north there are the 2 beautiful harbors of Camden, and also Rockport. Plenty of places to have the best tasting lobster. The harbors offer views of beautiful yachts, sailboats, as well it is a working harbor for folks who live here. Very friendly, nice people. Further north Bar harbor, Acadia less city, more country, beauty. Peaceful. Maine the way life should be! think http://www.maine.gov is a site that could be a jump off for you. Have a wonderful time, the NE is beautiful. Safe trip to you also. acadia
The northern part of Maine is beautiful in late Sept. If your there when Fryburg fair is going on that I think would be a must, there is so much to see and do. Sebago Lakes region is beautiful and on a clear day you can see the White Mtns. in New Hampshire. Pine Point, Old Orchard Beach , HIggins Beach are all beautiful in the fall. Kennabunkport where Pres. Bush's house is, is beautiful to with the waves crashing upon the rocks. Just go and enjoy I lived there for 52 years.
If you or you know someone who is a member of AAA visit the nearest office and request their free tour books on the states you plan to visit.They have alot in info on places to stay and eat as well as places to visit.Or visit a local book store and browse the travel section for ideas.There is much to see in New England so it would be best to plan ahead of time.
IF YOU HAVE THE TIME GO TO THE TOP OF NH AND SEE OUR GREAT NORTH WOODS. A MUST IS TO CHECK OUT MOOSE ALLEY IF YOUR REALLY LUCKY YOU'LL SEE A MOOSE AND MAYBE A FEW OTHER ANIMALS, HALF WAY DOWN YOU HAVE THE WHITE MOUNTAINS, THE LAKES REGIONS THE MT WASHINGTON BOAT, WHAT A GREAT RIDE, AND THE SEA COAST. OLD RT 3 RUNS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM . AND WATCH FOR LAND MARKS FOR GREAT SIGHTS AND PLACES TO EXPLORE. AGAIN AAA CAN HELP, I'VE LIVE HERE FOR 58 YEARS AND LOVE NH BUT I HAVE TO SAY MAINE, AND VT. ARE GREAT ALSO. I NEVER GET TIRED OF SEEING THESE GREAT STATES
