I just got back from Maine a couple of weeks ago. I had never been there, but some friends live nearby and advised me on a couple of places to go, one of those places being Bar Harbor. It was a really cool little town; beautiful. It sits right on the edge of Acadia National Park, which is incredible. I`d highly recommend checking that area out.
We also drove up the southern coast from Boston, through The Yorks and Kennebunkport. Really cool drive along the coast; lots of scenery and big homes.
Portland, ME was kind of a bust. We stayed there overnight and there wasn`t a whole lot to do other than walk around downtown.
I ate a bunch of lobster and blueberry pie. I made it my mission to sample blueberry pie from just about every place that offered it. I nearly brought one home w/ me.
Good luck and have a great time.

Thanks for the tips. Lobster and blueberry pie is absolutely on the menu for me. Meanwhile my wife will be in Kittery at the outlets. -------------------------

York is a great town to visit as a family. You`ll find quaint little town after quaint little town along route 1. But you will also find a lot of crowds and touristy things. That`s not such a bad thing but if you want to get away for a day or so, head inland to some other great places. Red`s Eats is a famous lobster roll stand in Wiscasset, another sweet little town. The more inland and north you go, the more likely you are to see a moose.
My wife and I drove up from Boston to Bar Harbor 2 years ago. Bar Harbor is great. The kids would love a lobster boat tour. We did LuLu`s lobster boat. One of my favorite activities was a 4 masted sunset sailboat cruise. Bring your own wine. Great views. Acadia is a good 1/2 day trip. We stayed one night in Camden on the way to Bar Harbor. It was our favorite town outside of BH. One night was enough though. -------------------------
