New England Trip Planning Inquiry for Coastal Maine, New England Patriots, Scenic Drives, Historical Preservation

We recently received another excellent New England travel inquiry, which we will happily answer right here...

Q: Hi!  We are planning a summer vacation.  Myself, my husband and our 14-year-old son want to visit the New England area.  I want to go on the scenic coast and eat Maine lobster, my son and my husband are BIG New England Patriots fans, and must see anything and everything to do with Bill, Tom, and Wes Welker.  We also are interested in the history of New England.  Can you please, please help me????? Last year my husband planned a three week, wonderful European vacation. I want this vacation to be just as breathtaking.  We will be driving from Northwest Indiana, on or around the last week of July, for 10 to 12 days.  Can you give me the most scenic driving directions?  I know I am asking a lot, but I need help!!!!!!!! Any little bit you can help me, would be soooo appreciated.
Thank you so much for your time.

A: You bet, glad to help! You will certainly find no shortage of travel attractions and destinations, in
regards to your planned New England vacation. One coastal region of Maine that we highly recommend is Acadia National Park. The coastal scenery is absolutely spectacular, especially the the 27-mile loop that offers endless ocean and mountain scenery.  For lobster, try the Docksider in the quaint community of Northeast Harbor. It's a classic, Maine lobster shack.

Patriot Place shopping and entertainment complex at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., should please your New England Patriots fan family members. Here, you can visit the Hall at Patriot Place that wonderfully honors the New England Patriots and football in New England through an incredible playbook of entertaining and educational state-of-the-art video and audio mediums, fan-friendly exhibitions and memorabilia. While at Patriot Place, check out the Patriots Pro Shop, the official store of the New England Patriots. For dining at Patriot Place, CBS Scene is lots of fun (although it can get quite noisy). CBS Scene comprises 15,000 sq. ft. of dining space with three levels of lunch and dinner dining, and 135 SONY Plasma, LCD and graphic projector displays (including table side televisions) playing the best of CBS radio and television entertainment, sports and news programming through the years.  Oh, yes, the food is really good here!
Check out our "Historic New England Towns" article for a taste of the great preservation in New England.  Regarding scenic drives, we recommend reading our "Best New England Scenic Drives" article at We cover a lot of ground here, including the unspoiled part of Cape Cod, the Stowe, Vt., area, and the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts.

Have fun planning your New England vacation, and please contact us if we can be of further help.
