Portland as a base and then...???

As per some suggestions we see on TA, we are considering using Portland as our base of operations as we make our way north to Bar Harbor. We were wondering if three nights in Portland is enough for us to day trip to Ogunquit and Kennebunkport, and still have time to see and enjoy Portland itself. Are we allotting enough time? Are we better off staying in Ogunquit for a couple of nights and then Portland for a couple of nights? We have the time to do this if it is a better plan. We leave next week so we would greatly appreciate your quick reply. Thank you.

I love Portland and we filled two days pretty quickly with just activities to do in Portland. I just read a post above yours with a great list of activities for Portland that I have saved and think would take multiple days. We certainly didn't do everything we would have liked in our short time.

Hopefully, someone with more knowledge of the other areas will reply. Enjoy Maine!

I would day trip out of Portland to minimize the whole unpacking/packing hassle. Ogunquit and K'port can easily be done in one day unless you are shoppers and need time to poke around in all the shops.
