Fodor's Boston GTG

The Fodor's Boston GTG will be held September 16 and 17, 2016, in Portland Maine. The Kimball's have been very gracious in the past to host these events in Boston and after talking to them about a different location they agreed that it might be fun on another New England City. My name is Benita and I will be hosting this year under the Kimball's expert guidance.

If you are traveling To New England this fall, we would love to have new and old Fodorites attend this fun event. The main GTG will be Saturday, September 17th around 11 a.m. for socializing before the luncheon. Details will follow on the location. For those of you who would like to attend the entire weekend, there will be plans for Friday and Saturday evenings.

Portland is a wonderful city on Casco Bay with excellent shopping boutiques and restaurants. Many menus will have steamed lobsters, lobster rolls, fried clams, mussels and oysters. The town of Freeport is 25 minutes away with shopping outlets and the original LL Bean store.

We are planning to stay at the Portland Marriott at Sable Oaks, Sable Oaks Drive, South Portland, Maine. Telephone Number is 1-207-871-8000. Prices are $169 and up. There is plenty of free parking on the property. Please make your reservations as soon as possible as this is the start of leaf peeping season in New England. The waterfront in Portland is about a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

Please let me know if you are planning on attending as soon as possible as I need an attendee count for restaurants or if you have any questions, you may e-mail me at [email protected]

Hoping to see lots of new and old Fodor's friends and I look forward to welcoming you to Lobster Land.

Benita

Sounds great. I've never made it to the Boston GTG even though I live in Massachusetts (western). I'm going to really try to get to this one but won't know my work schedule this far in advance. Consider me a "maybe" and I'll check in later to let you know when I can commit. Thanks for hosting.

Yeah, Benita!!! Thank you for taking on this challenge. I am not yet certain I can attend, as we have a trade show that same weekend, but I'm going to do my best to be there with the great fodors group.

I will not know if I can make it until closer to the date. I went to Maine for the first time in many years recently, and it was great. This would be a nice opportunity to go again and see old friends and new.
