Boston and surrounding area

Jump to last reply

We're a family of 4 with 2 teenagers, planning to spend a week in the Boston area and wanting to spend a little time in as many states as possible. I've come up with this linearity and I'm wondering opinions as to whether this sounds do-able and if it's a good plan for a first time trip to the NE.

Fly into BOS
Spend 2 full days in Boston area (Freedom Trail for sure, possibly North End and Beacon Hill and maybe Concord - possibly bike tour MinuteMan National Park...anyone done one of these tours?). Stay in Cambridge?
Rent car and drive to Portland - 2 nights, 1 full day (Lighthouses, eat lobster, and visit Old Orchard beach?)
Drive to Newport, RI (stopping in Portsmouth, NH) - 2 nights, 1 full day
Fly out of PVD

Anything we need to be sure to see/do? Any pointers on where to stay?
We want to take in some of the history, plus a beach and/or amusement park, and definitely eat some good food. Thanks!
