Boston to Portland

We are planning a trip to Boston and were thinking of picking up the car at Logan 8/23 around 1:30pm and take a scenic drive to Portland and stay for the night. We love to stop in coastal taverns for bites and a brews along the way. We thought we would drive back to Boston the next morning making more stops along the way. Turn the car in and stay in Boston for two nights flying out Sunday at 4:50pm. Can anyone suggest routes, stops, and hotels? We like to stay right in the middle of the cool bars / restaurants with a view if possible.

What you're describing about being near great restaurants and bars and a view describes the Old Port area of Portland perfectly.

You'll find these and more including beautiful old sailing vessels you can tour on and ferry to nearby islands all along Commercial Street. .Check out the TripAdvisor reviews for


In even a better location right on Commercial Street is the more affordable
