preferably along the coast. someplace with Quality Hotels as we're not real fans of the B&B thing, but if it's a Really Nice Inn with modern plumbing we'd consider it.
we'd like a setting that has Very Good to Excellent dining options at all price points. extra consideration will be given to ethnic-centric places. not really looking for night life but a lively bar/lounge that doesn't shut down too early would be sweet.
i've been to Bar Harbor and while nice, really didn't do it for me. BoothBay Harbor looks decent but all i can find is converted Motels. we Hate the Winnipesaukee region and have never found anything approaching decent there. ProvinceTown and most of the Cape have proven disappointing in the past. and we'd like to keep the drive under 3-4hours.
that's about it. we'd be going the last week in June for at least four nights.
