I would appreciate any recommendations to consider for an upcoming October road trip with my daughter (a new 3yo at the time of the trip.) My hope is to drive from Atlanta to Vermont with standard routes, and then return from Kennebunkport, Maine along Route 1 to the Carolinas. I am aware of the activities in Washington DC for a toddler. I am open to any ideas that can be enjoyable to a 3yo along the route. We are spending extra time in Washington DC, Boston, and Philadelphia. Also, what is the time frame to expect for Kennebunkport to the Carolinas utilizing Route 1. Yes, this is a long trip for a 3yo, and I realize she will not remember it. Life is short, and I try not to base all of my decisions on what is remembered.
Can you speak to Vermont vs Maine? The goal is the fall foliage, train ride for the fall foliage, quaint areas, etc. Museums may not be a top priority for a toddler. 😀
