What's best_ Biddeford Pool, Maine or Hampton, N.H.?

I would like to rent for the week of Oct. 5- 12 in either Biddeford Pool or Hampton. We will be driving from Landgrove, VT (near Manchester) There are rentals that are available in each location. Which would be best? We would like to look at nature but enjoy some shopping and eating also. We don't enjoy honky tonk, as someone described Hampton, but can't afford the really upscale areas at $2500 a week even in late Oct.
Thank you if you can help me decide.

Can you go in September? Weather is usually better and you're not fighting availability with all the foliage followers. Or are you going because you want to take day trips to see fall colors?

Biddeford Pool would be my choice because some of Hampton is pretty honky tonk. Just make sure the rental is on the water and not "Biddeford" proper. Ocean Park would be a better choice or something near Goose Rocks Beach/Kennebunkport. But those are both easy drives from Biddeford Pool. Kittery/Portsmouth shopping would be about an hour from here and Freeport/L.L Bean in the other direction.
