We are thinking of flying into Boston in early October and renting a car to drive up the coast to Maine for a long weekend.
We will arrive Boston early in the day on a Friday...and we will have to be back to Boston about mid day on Sunday.
Does anyone have suggestions for a good place/town to stay our first night? second night? or maybe a central location we can stay both nights and venture out from?
We really just want to explore a bit of the southern coast, eat out, see a few sights. Not too interested in shopping or nightlife or tourist attractions....altho, if there's something we shouldn't miss seeing...we're open to ideas.
Also not interested in large hotel complexes/resorts...prefer smaller but on the water if possible (beach not necessary).
Thanks for any advice. It will be a first time visit.
