I’m planning a last minute 5 day trip mid-August to the Maine Coast with my husband and want to iron out a basic itinerary. We’re looking to see beautiful scenery, lighthouses, bridges, moderate outdoor activities, and maybe a taste of culture, architecture, and science. We plan to bring food from home (dietary restrictions), could care less about shopping, but would love to go out a night or two to hear live music. We’ve been to Portsmouth/York area before so we’d like to see more up North. Does the basic itinerary below sound good? Any suggestions/modifications would be appreciated!
Monday –Drive up Mid-coast to Bar Harbor. Would love go kayaking (best spot?) and visit a scenic town to walk around (Camden?), Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory, Monday night, stay in Bar Habor
Tuesday – Hiking Acadia/Desert Island, stay in Bar Harbor for second night
Wednesday – Hike Acadia/Schoodic Peninsula, stay around Machias
Thursday – Head out to Campobello Island, whale watching tour, East Quoddy lighthouse, back to Machias at night
Friday – Drive to Boston where we’ll spend the weekend with friends before heading back to NY on Sunday. No ideas about where to stop along way….
