We live near San Jose, California, and are thinking of taking a first-ever trip to New England in May of 2018. More specifically, I’m looking to stay in the countryside of Vermont, maybe near Rupert or Manchester.
I’m just starting to do research about this. We’ve never gone anywhere in the eastern United States and have no experience with the airports there. I think I remember reading here that the airport and traffic in Boston is pretty miserable, and this makes me lean toward a flight with a midwest stopover so that we end up at Albany International in New York state. Does anyone have travel experience in the area and can give me advice on this?
We always rent a car and drive all over the place on our vacations. I love pretty agricultural areas and small towns and want to plan a tour accordingly.
With all this in mind, who has some good tips about traveling in New England?
