Places to stop between Boston and Portland

We're driving up to Portland for the weekend but want to make stops along the way, either on the way there or back. I'm looking for really good farms (with pick-your own, nice farm store, etc.) quality cafes/lunch spots, bakeries, even a small town if there is a fun one. Boston to Portland is straight up 95, so these spots would ideally be not more than 20 minutes off of 95. Any suggestions?

  1. You cannot go wrong stopping to eat in downtown Portsmouth, NH. The restaurants are amazing. Just go to the downtown and walk around and go wherever your nose takes you!

    1. I agree that Portsmouth NH is a "must stop". For upscale you can't go wrong with the Black Trumpet . For an awesome lunch stop with tons of character and delicious burgers & dogs, Gilly's is it!
