Make your own way to your nearest car hire depot, where your car will be ready to collect. All insurances, road maps and a sat-nav are included. A gentle two hour drive north takes you through the New England countryside to the coastal town of Kennebunkport, perched on Maine's rocky Atlantic coastline. Your afternoon is free to relax on the beach or explore the galleries and craft shops of this pretty coastal town - I recommend Hurricane for lunch. Continue inland to Jackson, located in the heart of the White Mountains National Forest.
Day 5 Jackson, NH
North Conway , Jackson, NH
Today you have tickets to ride the historic Cog Railway to the top of the North East's highest peak; Mount Washington. Enjoy a 3-hour guided train tour where, on a clear day, you can experience spectacular panoramic views. Learn about the history of the Mountain, its weather and wildlife, and also visit 'Tip Top House'- the hotel which welcomed the very first adventurers to the summit. Mt. Washington is known for its extreme weather so make sure to wrap up warm!
Day 6 Jackson, NH
The White Mountains area has plenty to keep you busy, be it art galleries, cruise tours, wildlife or shopping. Kancamagus Highway is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular sections of the White Mountains Trail which stretches 35 miles from Conway in the east to Lincoln in the west. I loved driving this section and taking lots of photo stops.
Day 7 Woodstock

Your drive today heads into the Berkshires region of Massachusetts, famed for its excellent galleries, museums and of course stunning scenery. On your way there make a pit stop at the Vermont Country Store in Weston, it's absolutely packed full of trinkets gifts and locally made treats. Make sure you try the cheese samples and the maple popcorn.
Day 10 Stockbridge
There's plenty to see in the Berkshires - the nearby peak of Monument Mountain will allow you to take in the very best views of the autumn colours. For a bit of local culture make time for the Norman Rockwell Museum this afternoon, and perhaps lunch in nearby Lenox village; the restaurant Alta has a great French menu. Head to the Red Lion Inn, one of the oldest inns in the United States, for a drink on the porch this evening.
