Hello, Maine experts. I need some advice. We are looking forward to being in Maine between Sept. 9th and 14th this year. We will definitely be visiting Acadia N.P. and taking in some of the scenic drives as well as looking for the best places to take some moderate length, fairly easy hikes (we are in our late 50's) and most definitely looking for the best places to view the area's wildlife, especially moose. We know we will be driving along the Coast on our way up to Acadia from the Boston airport, we will then continue North along the coast but are looking for suggestions on locales that would provide the most/best scenery, hiking and wildlife viewing on our way back down through the state, we are open to all areas of Maine. We will have at least 6 days and 5 nights before having to catch our flight back to the Midwest. Can anyone advise me on the best places to stop and spend some time as we meander our way through Maine, as well as suggesting the best places to find inexpensive but clean and comfortable lodging. We would rather spend our money on whale watching and things to do rather than on sleeping. From what I've seen on the internet it seems like it would be easy to blow the budget on lodging. We are also looking for suggestions about the best places to find really good lobster while avoiding the tourist traps, you know, like where locals go on a regular basis for really good, inexpensive food. Thanks to any help you may be able to offer.
