NE trip - New Hampshire- Maine - Boston - section 3 - need help in Maine

Jump to last reply

Husband, 13yr daughter & myself heading east late July.

Tent camping 2 days at Lafayette campground in Franconia Notch SP in NH.
Hiking Franconia Ridge Trail in White Mts. Next day hike to Franconia Falls in the AM then head to Maine. Hope to be on road around 1:00pm

The pace of our trip increases. To see Maine we have from 1:00pm Wed till we arrive in Boston around 3:00pm next day.

First
Route suggestion from New Hampshire to Maine? 112E - ME 133 or 112 E if we head to Freeport.
Is one route more scenic? If neither scenic - is there a better route?

Second
Where to camp in Maine. Looking for suggestions for campground. Important it have free WIFI. There is KOA in Portland, Would better location be Old Orchard Beach? Other suggestion? "Struggling with where to spend night." Depending on time may drive directly to camp, set up and that evening see a few things, shop, have lobster and then next day see rest of sites as we head toward Boston?

Third
What to see
Don't have time to drive to Arcadia NP. Wish we did as it is beautiful. Is there anything scenic like this further south? Farthest north we want to go is Freeport. Is the LL Bean store worth a stop? Our gal needs a school backpack.

What are best sites to get a feel for southern Maine coastline. Things we want to see/do...lighthouse, boats & harbors, maybe beach, lobster dinner (not fancy)

We were in Maine years ago. Can't remember town but it had cobblestone streets where we walked around at night shopping...any idea what town this might be? I remember we had 2 lobsters for $7.00 in this cafe. My daughter has never had lobster - for her first one - it would be fun to be at a place where they come off the boat and you eat at a picnic table. Suggestions?
