Cape Cod, Boston, Maine and Acadia September trip any Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My Husband and I are in our mid 40"s and planning to celebrate our 25th anniversary with a 9 day trip to the New England states. Something I suggested for our honeymoon 25 years ago but...... we went to Florida.
We have two kids in college and one in junior high yet, so we can't go too extravagant but plan to have a great time and use vacation savings. I could use some ideas of places to not miss and maybe some that is not worth our time.
We want to see historical sights, walk the shorelines, go on a whale watch, see light houses and visit some of the quaint fishing villages to enjoy the lobster. Hopefully a bit of relaxing as well!
We are flyng into PVD "Providence RI" late afternoon September 10th and getting a rental car. I then thought to go to Plymouth MA to spend our first night somewhere near there. We have reservations in Cambridge near Boston for the next 2 nights where I have learned to leave the car parked and travel by subway or bus while we are there.
After Boston, I've heard Gloucester has good whale watching cruises?
Portland ME is a city we don't want to miss and may spend a night there. Further north I would like to spend 2 nights at Oceanside Inn near Winter Harbor while visiting Acadia Park and Bar Harbor.
After Leaving Acadia would like to take a different route back. I've read that White Mountain shouldn't be missed and Jackson is the town to stay in?
This plan leaves us with two and a half days to get back down to Cape Cod and spend those nights there. I've looked alot at places to stay and prefer the Inn at the Oaks in Eastham Ma. as well as any other, kind of centerally located on Cape Cod. We don't need to be back to PVD till mid afternoon to return the car and fly out.
So does this make sense with travel time and not totally being exhausted? Like I said earlier I've wanted to do this forever so I'd like to make the best of it. Any suggestions or helpfull hints would be appreciated.
