New England pointers

about to book a 2 week trip to New England, to happen in May. All we're paying for at this end though is return flight to Boston, 2 nights there, and a hire car to take us to totally unspecified places. The general plan is to head north from Boston, up the coast, eat as much wacky seafood as is thrown at us, turn inland at some point (towards White Mountains), hopefully swerve to avoid some hairy wildlife on a dangerous road, and head back to the plane.
Can anyone give any tips on what not to miss/what places to avoid as part of an extended pull-in-find-room-see-stuff-find-food-get-bladdered-sleep-drive-off-next-day vacation? Don't mind the occasional tourist trap, cos we've never done the area before and know very little about it, but don't want to do too much of that sort of thing (i live in York, and am sick to death of tourists).
And, especially, are we missing much by not heading south from Boston?
