Having never been to Maine, I was wondering if somebody could give us some advice on a particular area to enjoy during our Fall Foliage adventure this fall.
We will be starting Off in Stowe VT to celebrate a birthday, and then heading to Maine for 4 days before returning BACK to Stowe, VT for a wedding.
Driving distance can be taken into consideration when responding, but I kind of had my Heart set on the coast, near Kennebunkport, Kittery, Portland, etc. Mainly (no pun intended!) because that area is the only one I know of. I am doing some research now and all the areas look so attractive but I keep coming back to the lower coast. Perhaps this is the area to stay in and then maybe take a drive for hiking, etc?
Anyhow, we love exploring quaint towns (touring), restaurants, canoeing, hiking, and more. We absolutely love Newport RI, All of Cape Cod, and even inland gems such as Stowe Vermont. Also, we love nice country Inns or B&Bs that are not too in-your-face if you know what I mean - any advice there would be wonderful as well....
I hope I have given a sense of what we are looking for during our initial stay in Maine! Any and all input would be very much appreciated!
