Never to come back? What a depressing thought.

With just a few months left, where would I go to cram in a few last joys of New England? (I don't have children so I can't speak about that detail.)

I don't mind the touristy places so my list would be long on those. Last year I went to The Polar Caves. It's alright, if you like climbing on walkways around big rocks it can be interesting. Similarly the Lost River Gorge and Flume Gorge look good.

Mount Washington, either drive up it or take the Cog. Drive the Kancamagus, it's on all the lists of "20 best scenic roads in the US".

If you love video games you have to see Fun Spot before you go. Plan to spend a whole day there wearing your fingers to the bone.

I would try to take in as many shows at The New London Barn Playhouse as I could.

I haven't been to Castle in the Clouds yet but I want to, been told it's worth it.

New England has more covered bridges than anywhere else in the nation, and the best too. Visit and walk on as many of those as you can.

The statehouse in Concord is worth seeing if you like history. The impressive main chamber is something special.

Spend time circling around Vermont, endless great stuff there to see. There's a cemetery that's filled with specially designed marble headstones because the marble is mined there in town. Damn, can't remember the name of it though. Burlington is real pretty.

In Massachusetts I would do the North Shore. Spend a day in Salem. Another day in Gloucester and Rockport. A solid afternoon in Newburyport.

You could spend a week at least slowly driving up the Maine coastline seeing the stuff worth seeing.

A few favorite restaurants to eat at (multiple times) before you go: The Hungry Buffalo in Loudon, NH; The Brick House in Hillsborough, NH; The Bradford Junction in Bradford, NH.

Also, get a list of used book stores and hit them up. Wherever you are moving to might not have them (or as large.) Particular favorites are Books by the Lake in Bradford and Old Number Six in Henniker.
