family vacation

I am looking for a good family vacation for a family of four, two teenagers ages 17 & 13.  We are planning on being at our destination about 4 to 5 days.  Not wanting to spend a lot of money.  would like some sight seeing along with a place to relax

We will be going along the coast, not sure how far up into Maine, I would just like ideas.  I have never been to Maine so it would be a first for the whole family.

    Make sure to check out York Beach . Great family area, great beaches, low on honky-tonk, big on a classic beach feel. Head up to Harpswell, ME and Boothbay Harbor , get lost in the inlets, and enjoy what Maine really has to offer along the seacoast-

    I am from Kennebunkport so of course I am biased, but it's lovely and just 30 minutes into the state of Maine. I would recommend visiting York (Maine), Kennebunkport, Boothbay Harbor, and Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. If you really want to see Maine, I think you need to go to Acadia. I went when I was a kid and loved it. I have written a bit about Maine, these posts might be helpful: http://thekittchen.com/maine-travel/

    Hi, consider York Beach, ME, Ogunquit Beach, Wells Beach, or Biddeford Pool. All are in the southern Maine area and are close to Portland, Maine or Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

    Kennebunkport is an absolutely adorable little town! I rented a house for 4 days last summer about 2 miles from the downtown area and it was just perfect. The downtown has an amazing wood oven stove cooked pizza place and a gelato shop near by. The downtown area is a mile or so from the beach which is chilly, but very nice. I would suggest looking at the downtown areas nearby, the shops are endless and there are small town restaurants around every corner!
