Martha's Vineyard was the most disappointing part of our trip and I'm not sure exactly why. I didn't have any expectations and I hadn't looked at any pictures of the area beforehand but for some reason what I saw was not very exciting. The houses were cute and the shops were nice but nothing made me want to come back there again.

Our trips to New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island were pretty short and consisted of stops at either a TJ Maxx, Marshall's, or Best Buy and lunch at Olive Garden. It was a pretty drive and I know we probably missed out on seeing many beautiful landmarks, state parks, etc. by not spending more time in each state. Perhaps one day we will go back!
We went to Scusset Beach one day for a couple of hours so Allan and I could experience New England beaches. The water was much cooler than I would have thought and the people watching was priceless! Nonetheless I still missed the powdery white sand of our Gulf Coast beaches. There was one thing that blew my mind about going to the beach there. You had to pay to get in the area to park and then you had to walk a 1/2 mile to actually get to the beach. I've never been anywhere that you didn't just pull off the road into a parking lot and walk 10 steps to sand. It's a workout just to make it to Scusset Beach!
I'd love to visit NYC and Vermont and I still haven't made it to DC so hopefully I can cover Maryland and New Jersey on a DC trip and that will finish the northeast corner of the country for me since I've already been to Maine and Pennsylvania. I thought about going to Vegas with Allan next week but then I decided I'd rather use my travel voucher and bonus miles American Airlines gave me to go to NYC for my birthday. Rockefeller Center and the Rockettes right before Christmas sounds like a perfect trip to me!
How many states have you been to?
