Just came across Lubec/Campobello whilst trawling through the Maine forum and thought this would make a worthy stop on our road trip of the (northern) US east coast.
We , (mum, dad & 15&17 yr old teens) are travelling late July/early August from NYC (4 nights) via Boston to Portland (tickets booked for Sea Dogs game) where we have provisionally booked two nights to see the region, we have then 5 nights booked in Bar Harbor before returning back to Boston for the last 3 nights.
Now having looked at the Lubec area we are wondering if it makes sense to stay for just 1 night in Portland to see the game and continue the next morning to Lubec for a 1or 2 night stay, explore the area in the afternoon and next day and then continue on to Bar Harbor.I have read some previous TRs and we have decided that a day trip from Bar Harbor does not make sense (too long) but would be willing to skip 1 day in Portland region or cut short our Boston stay to2 nights to accommodate this itinerary change.
Also is the whale watching better from Lubec or Acadia NP ?
Please advise or give your view on this. So many places to see and so little time :-(
P.S : What would be the best route to take from portland to Lubec ?
