4 day itinerary help October 16-20

My husband and I will be flying into Boston October 16th. We will rent a car and want to visit the southern coast of Maine probably driving to Portland and then making the return trip to Boston arriving there either Sunday night or Monday morning. Our flight home is in the afternoon.

We would like to take one route north (along the coast) and a different route back to Boston.

We arrive in Boston around noon and will stop along the way for lunch (possibly Salem) and then continue to the coast. What would be a good stopping point the first night. We travel light so do not mind different lodging each night. Looking to just spend some time together celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. We hope to keep lodging around $100 a night

See cozyharbor's great info on another recent post ("Trip to Maine" posted in Portland Forum) for covering Maine border to Portland.

From Salem check out Newburyport (MA) and Portsmouth (NH) before heading into ME. Overnight stop could be anywhere along southern coast but recommend Ogunquit or Kennebunkport for most accomodation and dining options.

For an anniversary "splurge" celebration try White Barn Inn (K'port) or Arrows (Ogunquit).

For an "inland" route back to Boston from Portland consider Rte 302 west through the NH White Mts and down I-93 or Rte 25 west to explore Lake Winnipesaukee area and then south on 93.
