Boston/Maine Coast

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are flying to Boston for a wedding at the end of July. We are in our late 20's and love beaches, traveling, sightseeing, boating, hiking, biking, etc. We are planning to spend a few days in Boston, and then head north on Tuesday to Maine. Here is our rough itinerary:

Tues: drive from Boston to Bar Harbor/stay in Bar Harbor
Wed: Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park
Thurs: Drive to Portland/Stay in Portland
Friday: Kennebunkport
Sat: Drive through Portsmouth, NH and then back to Boston to fly home.

Is this itinerary possible or is it too much packed into a few days? We have never been to Maine and would love to see all of these places, even if it means just spending a day to get a taste of some towns. Any suggestions on hotels/lodging in Bar Harbor, Portland, and Kennebunkport areas? We are running into issues with many motels/B&B's being a 2 night minimum. If that is the case, we were thinking we could spend 2 nights in Bar Harbor and 2 nights in Cape Porpoise, skipping most of Portland. Any suggestions? Thanks!
