Setting the scene - We will be arriving in Boston (from the UK) late August for nearly 3 weeks. We were planning (not set in stone) 3 or 4 days in Boston itself and then either 2 separate weeks in the North and then the Middle of Maine (on or near the Coast) OR a week in Maine and a week in the Cape Cod area. We intend to use each as a base and travel out and back to there each day.
My wife is disabled and I push her in a manual wheelchair so accessible is a big consideration for us.
Having Googled hotel prices, the cheapest in the centre of Boston are still nearly TWICE our budget so we will need to stay outside Boston and travel in for our 3 full days there.
So my questions:
1. 2 weeks in Maine or 1 + 1 in Cape Cod?
2. Best area outside Boston that is close enough to travel in, and given the wheelchair it would need to be close to an accessible transport option.
Any help or advice would be appreciated - we only have flights booked at the moment so everything else is fluid.
