Detroit - Montreal - Bar Harbor - Portland - Boston - Detroit

Jump to last reply

We are planning a family vacation with our 14 yr old daughter and 17 yr old son.

Detroit to Montreal (3 nights).

Montreal to Bar Harbor, stopping by Stowe and Burlington VT on way. (3 or 4 nights?)

Bar Harbor to Portland. Stopping at Camden and Boothbay on the way. Figured we won't get into Portland till evening. (2 Nights) - Cape Elizabeth lighthouse, lobster fishing and sightseeing.

Portland to Boston(2 Nights) - Stopping at Oguniqut and Gloucester on way - Freedom Trail??

Boston to Niagara Falls, ON for one night to break up trip home.

Niagara Falls to Detroit.

Any suggestions on this trip? We like boat rides, short Kayak trips, Islands, tours. Love things off the beaten path or hidden treasures. My concern is that there is not much to do in Boston for us. We are not huge hikers for Acadia, but like walking paths and would love bird watching/ seal watching.

Also, any good suggestions for Lobster. Heard Lobster Shack is a must. Thanks:)
