My inlaws moved to Auburn from Florida and we are planning a long weekend in August to stay and visit with them (we're from southeastern Mass) and are looking for things to do in and around the area, as we've never explored that area of Maine. We are looking to come around the time of the L-A Hot Air Balloon Festival so we know we'll hit that. Before our son came along, hubby and I would love to just jump in the car and head out with no destination in mind, finding little towns, antique shops and other places along the way. We have a 4 year old son so it's a little harder to just jump in the car and go without some idea of what's up the road but we still would love to explore this area. Looking for great little drives, towns to see, places to visit, anything to do with railroad would be a big hit with the boy, parks with child friendly hikes, places to swim, etc.
We are planning to leave Auburn and drive via Rt 302 to NH to go to Storyland in Glen for an overnight before coming home as I believe (if Google maps is right) is less than 2 hours from Auburn and looking for ideas of places to stop along the way to shop, sight see, etc.
