I planned a road trip itinerary and we told our 2 daughters what they should pack. We told them where the next days stop would be on the night before. And I only gave away the surprise one time!
Our first stop was New York City. We at hotdogs from a street vendor, spent an afternoon at the Natural History Museum and took a walk through Central Park. That evening our daughter went to see a Broadway show (her other present) while we went to dinner with friends.
Our next day was a drive to my mother-in-laws former house on Long Island and then a stop in the Hamptons ,which were never on my radar before. I think this was one of my favorite stops of the trip - beautiful beaches and adorable little towns.
A ferry ride from the North Fork of Long Island to New London, CT completed our second day.
And the last stop on the Mystery Trip was a trip to the Cape - my first. We drove the whole Cape - visiting a lighthouse, a few little towns and ended the trip with a lunch in Provincetown.
You might ask which day I gave away the surprise about - Cape Cod, because I was so excited to go there and of course, because it was the last day. I almost made it.
