Boston/Maine
« on: October 12, 2017, 02:02:55 PM »
Looks like I'm headed to Boston and then a long weekend in Maine in January.  I'll have 3ish days alone in Boston while the wife is in training during the day then we're thinking of heading up to Portland, but I'm open to other suggestions.  Looking for :protips: on stuff to do (lobster rolls).  :coffee:  Should we drive or is da train ok?

Allagash is worth a visit, even though you've had their beer 1000 times. 

Personally, I'd probably drive it.  It's only a 2 hour drive, and you can hit some good stuff along the way.  That said, I'm a pretty moderate drinker.  The train + uber might be a better way to go.  :mellow:

It's been like 10 years since I did that drive.  Last time I did it, we stopped at Portsmouth, which is not far off the highway.  No doubt there's even more now.

Biggest pro tip should be no sales tax in New Hampshire... If you expect to do any shopping at all, particularly for anything more expensive like spirits, do it in NH.

Yeah, I'm a cheap bastard, these are the things I care about, part of why I go to Oregon so often.
non-conformists are all the same...
