    Things to see between Royalton, VT and Boston

    I am going to a conference in Royalton, VT, driving up from the Boston Airport. When I am done on Sunday morning, I have until 2 PM Monday to back at the Boston Airport. Anything interesting to see or photograph on my drive back? Places I should eat?:-)

    Not sure about in vt, but head over to nh and drive around the white mountain national forest in upper nh. Probably some nice foliage in vt and nh.

    In Boston, the Museum of fine art has a Karsh Exhibit (also at a nearby hospital) and a pictorialism exhibit. For sights, Boston has many American history attractions; google freedom trail. Many nice places to eat in the "North End" and near North Station. Boston is an important places for colleges and business, but I don't often think of it as a destination.

    There is a lifetime of things to see in New England. It really depends on the kind of things you are interested in (e.g. birds, antiques, old towns, bridges, water bodies, gardens, architecture). If you are mostly interested in the boiler-plate large format stuff that is popular in this forum, such as: alpine ponds in the mist, covered bridges, historic monuments, red barns, long-exposure waterfalls, lighthouses, arrays of brightly colored boats, any guidebook will do.

    In Boston you could do The Freedom Trail: http://www.thefreedomtrail.org/ and the USS Constitution: http://www.ussconstitutionmuseum.org...FUMLMgodcXcAeg with the amount of time that you have available.

    Take Rt. 14 over to Bethel, where it connects with Rt. 107. Whichever way you go on 107 will take you to something interesting. If you go south on 107, look for Rt. 12 south and take it to Silver Lake State Park. There is much to entertain you in that part of our lovely state.

    Toyon,

    Sadly, all I have room for is a Sony a6000.

    If interested in nature then the White Mountains.
    If interested in US history and unfriendly locals then Boston.
    Personally, I would enjoy the foliage via 112 or 302 and stay in North Conway, NH. Make sure you reserve the hotel ahead.
    You should also add a couple of extra hours entering Boston from the north Monday morning.
