Hello! My husband and I are visiting Maine for the first time next month. We'll be staying at a hotel near the airport...the Regency Suites I believe.... We plan to spend 5 days in and around the Portland area. How convenient will it be to get around without a car rental if the hotel has a shuttle service to and from the hotel? If we want to travel up to Freeport, is there any other way besides a car???
We want to do as much on foot or bike as possible, but don't want to wear ourselves completely out. =) Am I being too idealistic? Any advice or expert experience would be appreciated! I've always wanted to visit Maine (have never been to the northeastern states), and want this trip to be as memorable as possible. Thanks!!!
