Revised Niagara-New Hampshire-Maine 40th Anniversary!!

Jump to last reply

Made quite a few changes and would love opinions and further advice and suggestions. We are going to fly to Buffalo on May 20, rent a car and drive to Niagara on the Lake. We're spending 3 nights at The Harbor House. We plan to visit the falls and do Maid of the Mist one day and the next day wander NOTL. Eating/dining suggestions? Any winery suggestions?

We MUST be in Phila on May 24. We're going to drive from NOTL, it's about a 6 hour drive.

On May 25 we're leaving for Newport, RI. Also about a 5 hour drive. Suggestions for a nice mid-way stop & meal? The next day we'll do the Cliff Walk, see a "cottage" or two, and I'd like to ride the ferry to Rose Island. Suggestions on where to stay (low $200's) and where to eat?

After breakfast on 5/27 we are going to drive to NH. I have 48 hours and want to do Mt. Washington (cog reilway) Canturbury (Shaker Village) and Lake Winnepasaukee if there is time. We have to begin making our way to Bar Harbor on May 29.. So, in what order do I travel in NH. Also, is there a central place we can stay?

In Maine, we want to visit Acadia.We'll stop at the visitors center of course, but any suggestions for walkers, not hikers would be appreciated. Easy bike trails? Jordan Pond sounds lovely and the restaurant gets lots of press. Suggestions of where to stay/eat? We want to stay until June 2, so we'll have 3 days.(Not carved in stone)

On June 2 we'll to drive to Portland from where we'll fly home on June 4. Has anyone ever taken a food tour in Portland? Again, any suggestions for where to stay/ eat is appreciated.

We like small hotels, inns, B&B's (but not a spare bedroom in someone's house). We're hoping to enjoy lobster rolls and ice cream and food that good but not too fussy. We are wine drinkers! And also, it is our 40th Anniversary! Imagine, we met on a blind date and knew each other only 6 months when we married. I've been finding out that people said it wouldn't last -- good thing we never knew it.. So, dear Fodorites, please remember that some of our dates are locked in. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
Thanks!
