Itinerary Advice 6 day Maine Coast Roadtrip

Jump to last reply

Hello all. My husband, myself and our 5 year old daughter will be taking a road trip from Michigan to see the coast of Maine early July. I need help with an itinerary.

We will be breaking the long drive up into two days on each side of our stay so that leaves us with 5 nights/6days to see the Maine Coast.
I'm thinking:

First two nights/3 days in Acadia National Park staying in Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor, or Southwest Harbor.

Leave on Day 3 and drive down to Camden and stay one night there.

Day 4 drive down to Boothbay Harbor and stay one night. See Botanical Gardens and experience a Lobster boat ride.

Day 5 drive to Portland and stay one night there (my husband wants to stop there but not sure what there is to see and do).

Day 6 drive to and stay one night in a southern town. I hear there are old boardwalks with amusement park/coney island style fun for kids in Old Orchard Beach and York Beach. What town would you suggest ?

Is this a reasonable itinerary? Are there places you would suggest stopping along the way or hotel/inns you would recommend?

We are looking for fun local things to see and do (that will also keep our daughter entertained). Thank you for any help you can offer this first-timer to Maine!
