9 nights/8 days in New England late June/early July

Jump to last reply

I have some UA certificates that expire soon. Planning to use them for a trip to New England June 27 - July 5. I realize that this is in the middle of prime-time vacation season, especially the last half, so would appreciate suggestions about what to see/do and the order in which to do it that might be least affected by the throngs.

We plan to fly into Portland, ME, perhaps spend the first night there (because flt. doesn't arrive there till 6:30 pm) and visit Acadia NP. Friend recommended that we stay in a B&B in Southwest Harbor. (I'd welcome recommendations about specific B&Bs.) However, I don't think we want to spend the entire time there. Where else would you recommend we go? We've been to Boston, but haven't seen all that area has to offer. We enjoy hiking (though husband's knee is bad -- soon to be replaced -- so he can't hike much now), nature/flora and flauna, kayaking, museums, and lobster, and husband enjoys golf. We'll have a rental car.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
