In New England there are many coastal towns founded back to the 1600's that have very narrow windy streets and no place to park. bicycles will work nice,but, there are lots of big hills too, so a small scooter will keep your sweat down so you don't smell when you get to where you are going. Also, these towns have little parking and the smaller the scooter the better, so you can tuck it in odd places such as in very narrow alleys. You can also legally pass cars on the right with a 50cc moped/scoot, to get through stopped traffic. These towns are very similar to the little towns of Europe where scooters are everywhere.
