Summer is the perfect time to go on a road trip with your family and get to spend quality time together. Luckily we live in New England where there’s great back roads, fascinating small towns, endless natural splendor, and the ability to hit several states in one day! Where else can you find all of that? 

Below are a list of ten amazing locations to take an RV road trip with your family. 

  • Rangeley Lakes Scenic Byway - Maine

    • On this trip you can view pristine lakes and mountains. Make sure you don’t miss out on the panorama of Height of Land pullout and always keep your eyes peeled for moose, bear, or bobcats.

  • Mount Desert Island Loop - Acadia National Park, Maine

    • Head to Bar Harbor first, then check out Acadia National Park via the Mount Desert Island Loop Road. 

  • Coastal Crossing - New Hampshire

    • Take in the New Hampshire coastline, from Seabrook Beach to Portsmouth. At only 18 miles it’s full of great places to stop, including funky Hampton Beach, Fort Constitution, and charming New Castle, home of the elegant Wentworth by the Sea Hotel.

  • Green Mountain Ribbon - Vermont

    • Vermont’s Route 100 is a road-tripper’s dream: long, straight, and flanked the entire way by the beautiful Green Mountains. This road runs the entire north-south length of the state. 

  • Alpine Drama - Vermont

    • With this New England road trip, you’ll think you’re in the Alps, as VT108 climbs steeply from Stowe toward Smugglers’ Notch in the Green Mountains, tightening into a blacktop corkscrew past boulders and cliffs.

  • Mohawk Trail - Massachusetts 

    • Famous at foliage time, but equally splendid in the summer, this historic scenic highway winds along northern Massachusetts. 

  • Housatonic Valley - Connecticut 

    • Follow Route 7 along the Housatonic River from New Milford to Canaan which reveals the green beauty of Western Connecticut. There’s a covered bridge and waterfalls.

  • The Quiet Corner - Connecticut

    • Travel back in history for bucolic tranquility on quiet CT169 from Old Norwich to Woodstock, meandering past colonial homesteads and stone walls, farmers’ fields and quaint town greens.

  • Shore Of Dreams - Rhode Island

    • The perfect New England road trip for beach lovers, this route follows US 1 from RI’s funky surf town of Narragansett along Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to historic Westerly (and veranda cocktails at Ocean House).

  • Kingly Cape Cod - Massachusetts 

    • Winding, historic, green and dotted with extraordinary vistas out to Cape Cod Bay, is a showcase of New England village life from Sandwich to Orleans. Plus, great book shopping and antiquing.
