Mid-Coast Maine or North Conway area NH with energetic boys?

Jump to last reply

Booked half a week in Ogunquit late this summer with my husband and 2 boys (ages 7 and 9) We have another 5 nights and are willing to travel 2-2.5 hrs north, northeast or northwest of Ogunquit. We are debating whether to head inland towards North Conway do some hiking, white water rafting, Red Jacket/Kahuna Laguna, Cranmore Adventure Park or other mountain-y things or head further up the Maine coast for more beach, hiking, biking, boat trips, etc. Would love to do Acadia, but the drive is just too far (I think next year we will go there, but we will fly in.). I'd love to do some biking, but I'd prefer a bike path rather than roads or serious mountain biking trails. I can't seem to find a good bike path on the coast or inland, but maybe I am looking in the wrong places...

The goal is time outdoors and time spent physically moving instead of cooped up in a car. Sightseeing is good, but leisurely strolling/shopping is out. The husband does not like to sit still and the boys are worse. :)

Tips anyone?
