Help with NE (Maine, Boston, Cape Cod) Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi! I am looking for a little critique on my upcoming itinerary for our New England trip.

We are a family of four (kids - 8, 4) plus our friends (kids - 8, 6, 4) are flying into Boston, MA in July. Here is what we have come up with so far:
F Day 1 - Rent Car Drive to Portsmouth, NH
Sat Day 2 - Drive to Bar Harbor
Sun Day 3 Bar Harbor
Mon Day 4 Bar Harbor

Plans for Boston -
Lobster Boat - either Lucky Catch in Portland or with Bar Harbor Whale Watching
Portland Head Light
Mount Battle (on the way north or down)
Acadia National Park - what trails are good with kids (ones that don't love to work and prefer a stroller, but they won't have it!). Can we drive to any of the park and visit the spots? Sand Beach, Mt Dessert, Cadillac Mountain, Jordan Pond (read about he popovers :)
Mini Golf
Blueberry picking?
Mt Desert Oceanarium

Do I have way too much for a few days - and if so - what should I prioritize?

Tues Day 5 Drive to Cape Cod
Wed Day 6 Cape Cod

Still working on must sees for Cape cod - Suggestions appreciated. We are staying in Hyannis.

Thurs Day 7 Drive to Boston (Stop at Plymouth Rock)
Fri Day 8 Boston
Sat Day 9 Boston

Boston Plans
- Childrens Museum
- Boston Tea Party Museum
- Quincy Market

Sun Day 10 - Fly home

I always receive such great advice! Thank you in advance!
