Kennebunkport and....?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are trying to plan a trip for June 28- July 6 of this year. I am pregnant with our first child, and we'd like to get away for one last vacation before the baby arrives. This morning I got an email from Jetsetter with a deal for the Cottages at Cabot Cove in Kennebunkport, Maine (http://www.cabotcovecottages.com/). I put a hold on a room from June 28 - July 2. I have three days to book the room or it will be released.

Our initial thought was to fly into Boston on the 28th, pick up a rental car, and drive to Kennebunkport that night (about 1.5 hours from Boston).

Upon checking out on the 2nd, we are having trouble deciding what to do next.

We could either drive back to Boston (get rid of the rental car) and explore Boston until leaving on the 6th. If we decided to stay in Boston, what is the best area to look for a hotel/apartment? We have never been to Boston and would like to be within walking distance of the main attractions, good restaurants and shopping.

I would like suggestions for other cities/towns within driving distance of Kennebunkport. We are open to flying out of an airport other than Boston, assuming our air miles will work. While I would love to finally visit Boston, I am also drawn to the idea of seeing more of picturesque New England and enjoying a more slow-paced, relaxing vacation before the baby arrives. I would love suggestions! Thanks in advance!
