We are visiting Boston during the week of July 6-10 and will take a day trip sometime during the week to the South Coast. We'd probably like to stay within 2 hours of Boston, so it looks like we could get as far as Kennebunkport or maybe a little further. I'm looking for advice as to what we should be sure and see that day.
We are 40-ish and my daughter is 18. We're definitely outdoorsy folk, so it's stuff like natural wonders, historical places, etc. that we want to see. Shopping is not so important and we'd probably pass on anything indoors or anything too artsy. I also really want to experience "the best of the best" in terms of local foods. We are much more inclined to like the places that the locals know about, as opposed to the tourist meccas.
Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
