Planning a trip to coastal Maine- 10 days

Jump to last reply

I am planning a summer trip to Maine August 10-20, 2013 with my husband and 11 year old son and am excited to see this area of the country. We have never been. We will be flying into Boston on the 10th in the morning (and flying out of Boston on the 20th) and then driving up. I'm trying to think through the best itinerary before we start booking hotels/B&B's and am looking for advice and tips on must see places/towns as well as how to divide up the days in each area for this 'loop trip' since we'll be needing to drive back to Boston at the end of our trip.

We love great food and excellent off the beaten path food finds, looking at art/shops, hiking and kayaking, and want to do one excursion of whale watching for sure. Definately want to see Portland, Bar Harbor, Acadia, Freeport for the LL Bean store, Booth Bay Harbor but are open to suggestions.

Thanks for any advice!
