Hi there. I used to vacation at a family friend's place on Southport isle when I was younger, and I'm getting the jones to visit Maine again. Because I usually stayed at someone's home, I spent most of my time in Southport and Boothbay Harbor. This time, however, my wife & I would be staying at a B&B, hotel or rental, and I'm wondering if I should consider staying in some other towns like Pemaquid, Bristol, etc.
Some background: We are a female same-sex married couple, 37 and 42, who live in New York City. We are mainly interested in relaxing, eating good food (she's a vegetarian, I'm not,) beautiful scenery (sand or rocky beaches, forests, lakes/ponds) and the occasional activity like whale watching or easy hiking. We don't need to do all the tourist shops or crowded activities.
So, any suggestions, pros or cons? I'd love to hear some insider scoop!
