Just discovered Chowhound this evening! We are from Denver and temporarily relocated to Gloucester for the summer to spend some time with the grandkids. We haven't really gotten out to see much of New England yet and are looking for some suggestions for day or weekend trips to take in more of the fabulous scenery and enjoy the local flavors. We are looking for suggestions for scenic drives that end up at an interesting restaurant that we most likely wouldn't find on our own. Or maybe a shorter ride on the Harley to a great ice cream stand or seafood shack.
We are planning a drive up to Bar Harbor next weekend and I have been trying to note some of the suggestions already posted.
So if you had only a couple of months to explore New England (and a modest budget:) what would your food destinations include? BTW the grandkids are staying with mommy and daddy, so kid friendly is not necessary, but we enjoy casual atmosphere, music, outdoor dining with a view.
