A road trip to visit a local national park is just what the doctor ordered. Our family loves the outdoors and, especially, the opportunity to hike and explore. We're lucky that Bar Harbor and Acadia are within 4 hours of our home. It makes for an easy long weekend outing, and we did just that with a three night stay at an Airbnb. This was our second year visiting the area, and we enjoyed it even more. Despite wearing masks at restaurants and local stores due to Covid 19, it w

These are areas that I tend to become completely involved and obsessed with. I love the research, planning, and end result that go with both.

There are a lot of choices of towns to stay in along the lake: Meredith, Wolfeboro, Moultonboro, Guilford, Alton, and Laconia (popular for bike week).
