Driving from Stamford, CT to Portland, ME and have no plans whatsoever

fortes | Oct 7, 2009 07:06 PM

Dear Hounds,

My girlfriend and I are escaping from NYC to drive up to Maine this weekend. We have no plans at all, but I've never been to Maine so we figured we'd head up there.

We're looking for recommendations for places to stop on the way (or make a detour for). We were thinking of going through Rhode Island on the way, and possible head back on a different route (New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Mass?).

I know it's pretty vague, but we really have no plans, so we're really flexible (we may even go to Cape Cod instead of Maine). We are not picky eaters, love seafood, and are most interested in taking advantage of things that aren't particularly available / cheap in NYC.

We stopped by Clinton, CT for Lobster rolls at the Lobster Landing, they were excellent. But otherwise, we don't know the area.
