Portsmouth, New Hampshire is a popular place to visit from Boston and perfect for dog owners as well. Just across the old bridge, is Kittery Point, Maine, where you can drive over to Fort Foster. The beautiful Maine beaches at Fort Foster are dog friendly all year as long as your dog is on a leash. There is a $10 per car charge to enter the park and you need to carry out all trash/poop bags. Take the time to explore Kittery Point, Maine – it is beautiful and far removed from the outlet malls.
We are big fans or weekend trips to Maine. Margie, spent her summers in Maine throughout her childhood and has a deep love for the area. We will do a better job of sharing some of our favorite places to visit in Maine with our dog, The Magnificent Moose.
