We are excited to start planning this summers vacation. Teens are 18 and 16. This may be the last summer vacation together for awhile, because internships, etc. will probably start for our daughter next summer.
Dates are July 6th to July 19th. Originally I was looking at a full circle loop, from Portland, ME or Burlington, VT, but found it is is cheaper to fly into one of those airports and leave from the other, doing a partial loop. Flights into either airport on the 7th arrive late morning and flights leaving both airports on the 19th is around 5:30 pm. Coming from Chicago.
Was thinking, 1 night Montreal, 4 nights Mont Tremblant, 3 nights Quebec City, ending with 4 nights in Bar Harbor.
Is this a good mix? 2 of us are partial to nature/adventure travel, 2 to cities. We would do one or two outstanding museum-which one/s?
Would you tweak the number of nights at each place differently?
Any other recommendations? Can you think of a great stop/s along driving routes, especially between Quebec city and Bar Harbor?
Thank you for helping me to finalize the plan so I can start booking!
Looking at West Street Hotel in Bar Harbor. Thoughts?
