We are planning to visit family in Portsmouth New Hampshire in July. We are going to spend a couple days with them, but then want to explore other nearby areas. We will have our kids, ages 11 & 13. I'm not sure where to begin or which way to go first. They love nature so I was thinking the Kancamagus Highway attractions would be nice. I don't know if we should do that as a day trip or if we should stay somewhere in the white mountain area and take a couple days to do it. Or....we could head back & stay in a coastal area in Maine (was thinking Ogunquit or somewhere near there). Wouldn't mind fitting Boston in there too....but one can only do so much. Ugh!
I don't have any hotels booked yet....and I'm okay with spreading it out, day here, day there kind of thing. I want to make the most of our time but not spend too much time driving...and not being familiar with the area, I'm not sure the amount of time and/or best order to do things. I am totally flexible and open to suggestions. Here's our "schedule"
We arrive Tues in Boston, spending Wed & Thurs with family in Portsmouth....we have Fri, Sat, Sun, and Mon to do what we want. Leaving on Tues out of Boston.
