I will also post this on the Boston Forum. Our family is considering a trip to New England in the spring of 2011. It will be our last trip before our oldest child leave for college. We will have a week and would like to focus on 2 areas. We are thinking about flying into the Boston area, (we can get an a.m. flight and land by noon) and head toward Bar Harbor. We would like to spend 2-3 nights there and then head back to Boston for 3 nights.
My wife and I visited Bar Harbor in the early 1990's, but we were easier to please.
Is whale watching available during the first week of June? What other activities in Bar Harbor would you suggest for a family with 2 older teens?
