We had been to Yellowstone last year and didn't see all of it that we wanted to see. We stayed in West Yellowstone, Montana. This year, we managed to see what we missed last year but stayed in Cody Wyoming. While I really liked northwestern Wyoming, my wife thought it was a bit too monochromatic, lackingcolorful flowers and trees.

Visited 9 Kentucky State Resort Parks following the Culinary Trail. Kind of a mini staycation. Travelled to one or two at a time. Great eating!

I live one hour from beautiful Kentucky lake right outside of Paris Tennessee. We bought a fishing cabin about 8 years ago for weekly escapes with fishing,food family , shopping, as the main agenda. We have been to many places in the states but this is by far the best.The four full seasons offer breathtaking views.Trails for hiking are avall able as well as civil war history. I take vacation year round!

I did my thesis on the community of Newburyport, MA, and had a wonderful time going through the cemetaries in the area.  My undergrad thesis was on Colonial Lexington.  The cemetaries are a goldmine of information on the diseases that spread through the area as well as the demographics of the population.  The historical societies in the towns have been an unbelievable resource.  I love the New England area.

Wonderful! Your itinerary sounds great (I have lived in the NorthEast since 1975).

 

If you are a history buff, take in some of the old butial grounds too. Did you mention Lexington and Concord. New England has a plethora of riches to offer, whether it is natural beauty, musiciams, churches, ...

A group of friends (all history buffs) and I are going to tour the historic settlements in the Northeast. We are going to Plimouth Village, Mystic Village, Sturbridge Village, Strawberry Banke,  and we are going to dry to get to Lake Champlain andthe Erie Village in New York, but we may not have time for the last two,  We met as we were studying for our Master's Degrees in Early American History so this will be a great trip for us. Lots of laughter, good food and greatt times with great friends.
