I'm going to be working at Canobie Lake Park!

Canobie Lake - used to go there a lot as a kid.

I live over at the coast (which for NH is something like 18 miles long). You're obviously very close to Boston (under an hour) so I'm sure you'll go there plenty of times. A trip down to NYC would be good, and I'd visit Maine, too. Niagara Falls is a bit further over, but if you plan accordingly you could probably do it.

Have fun. New England is great in the summer. Well, except for the humidity...

Hee, really? Is it a good place? Obviously I'm going into this kind of blind, but I'm looking forward to it as long as you tell me good things.

I think they lay on trips to Boston during the summer too so I hope to see a bit of that, I'm excited to see everything really!

I haven't been there in a while, but I of course loved it when I was younger. It's still as popular as ever, though. Been around a long time.

I hope people will understand me okay as well. I mean, my accent isn't broad but it's definitely Scottish, lol.

Niagara Falls is definitely a must see - I've been there twice and love it You can easily see and do it all in 2 days - then off to Toronto for another 2 days. NYC will require the bulk of your time to see and do all the fun stuff. If you have any time left, I'd recommend Boston or Montreal....or possibly DC/Philly area.

Have fun

They will love it and say you are sooooo cute!

Sounds like you've got an awesome trip coming. I've never been around New England much (the one time I was there for a week was doing relief work immediately after Sept. 11) so I'm looking to go there for my honeymoon. I've always wanted to see the coast of Maine and the Holocaust museum in DC. Toronto as well, but that's probably worthy of it's own trip!

Please don't let anyone discourage you going to Niagara Falls. Even if the tourist traps on the Canadian side are too much for you, the falls themselves, the Maid Of The Mist, going down behind the falls, the whirlpool basket - worth every minute. I recommend staying at one of the Bed n Breakfasts.

Continuing on to Toronto is the icing on the cake - it's a wonderful city, and you might even hit it during the film festival.

The biggest drawback will be the dreadful ride through western New York State...

Huh?

The way the Falls are set up is that there is a road and a walkway built right next to them. Therefore it's impossibe to "not see anything" since the falls are right smack in front of you to the point where you can feel the mist. They're not off in the distance, they're not in the fog and so on. That's the strangest thing I've heard, honestly.

While the falls are not great in shitty weather, they can be absolutely gorgeous in winter when there is ice. In the summer, they're lovely and the Maid of the Mist is spectacular - worth it and quite cheap for what you get.

Niagara Falls itself is not exactly a city or a town, it's like a couple of main streets that look like a knockoff of Vegas, so you can easily do what you want there in a day. I've taken lots and lots of people to the falls, both from here and overseas and everyone has always absolutely loved them.

That humidity is awful! My brother and his wife were married in Maine in July and let me tell you I have never experienced such horrible humidity. It was worst than anything I have lived with here in the South.

New England is beautiful. The mid-Atlantic states are just as beautiful. The Shenandoah Valley in Virgina is gorgeous if you are up for a scenic drive.

Hell every part of this country is beautiful. Different landscapes in all 4 corners.
