New England Vacation: The Planning Begins

Our summer vacation this year will be a domestic one to New England.  We plan to spend two weeks exploring New York and states farther north.  We've been planning our itinerary off and on for the past few months but, at least for me, I wasn't really serious about the planning.  The Wife has been doing a much better job of making lists of places she wants to visit and things she wants to do.  The only thing I have on my list is the 9-11 memorial, a day hike in Acadia National Park, and Niagara Falls.  I have some work to do.

What's lighting the fire under my butt is this week we finally nailed down the dates and the length of time we were interested in vacationing.  With this info in my hand  I've made the airline reservations (used some frequent flyer miles and got a good deal).  Now comes the hotel reservations, train tickets (from/to New York to/from Boston) and the rental car (we will be leaving Boston by car).  Along the way we will be hitting a lot of literary and historical landmarks on the Wife's list.  I need to start adding my things to the itinerary.

If anyone reading this has any ideas of places to see or things to do during the last two weeks of June, leave a comment on Homer's Travels, Facebook, or Twitter.  You can even send an email if that trips your trigger.
