Trip to Maine
Posted July 20th, 2011 - 5:10 pm by from Plymouth, United States (Permalink)
I moved to MA a while back but I have yet to do any traveling in the New England area. Anyone want to take a trip to Maine(if you have suggestions on where to go let me know)next Sunday or Monday? I have transportation if you want to provide a little gas money.

I moved to Boston couple of months ago and have been traveling extensively in the New England area esp. Maine and New Hampshire.

In New Hampshire, you can drive along the coastal route and visit the Hampton beach, Rye Harbor and numerous parks along the way.

In Maine, some of my favorite places are Ogunquit (very scenic) and Cape Neddick - Nubble Lighthouse which is apparently the most photographed and painted lighthouses.

I usually go there on weekends and might be going again next weekend. Let me know if you or anyone wants to plan a trip someday!

I'd be interested in coming also! I could do Friday thru Monday trips. Potentially also into a Tuesday ... at least until the fall semester starts.

There are so many beautiful places within just a few hours drive. In addition to Maine and New Hampshire, you can also access most of Vermont within just 2-3.5 hrs driving, and you can access the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Western MA. Even just the northern coast of MA, near Queen Anne's Bay and such, is beautiful. It all just depends on what you want to do.

I am from Southern VT so I know some places.. but I don't have a vehicle. I'd be happy to throw in for gas money. Keep me in the loop for sure!

I can do all day Sunday but would like to get back to Boston by night since I don't have Monday off :(

Lets decide on a time and place.. and whoever wants to join will chime in.
