We are a family of 5 traveling with 3 teen-tween daughters and a small dog. We are attending on a Saturday in August a family reunion in Knox, Maine. We typically visit finger lakes in NY for some waterfalls and light day hiking. We are a NJ family and are used to jersey beaches (white soft sand, swimmable ocean temp). We also have food allergies (milk, gluten).
Now there are the facts. Where should we stay? Is Belfast a good place for vacation rentals? Is it short trip to Acadia? What should be seen in Maine?
