Savvy September 2020

Minimoon - Cape Cod or Portland, Maine?

Ashley, on February 26, 2020 at 7:37 AM Posted in Honeymoon 0 5
Hey all!

We’re doing a minimoon right after the wedding at the end of Sept (full honeymoon next Spring).
We’re trying to decide between Portland (Maine) and Cape Cod — we’re having better luck finding pet friendly airbnbs in Cape Cod, but are drawn to the charm Portland seems to have. Any advice when it comes to the weather, things to do in each, etc?
We want a relaxed trip but to still be close to things like restaurants, shopping and hiking/nature.

    I love Portland so that's my vote! Portland is actually super dog friendly, we've brought our frenchie with us there a few times and he was allowed in all the shops but not sure about airbnbs. We also went to Acadia national park last September and had the best time. It's beautiful in September, pet friendly and super affordable (just another suggestion). Smiley smile

    I’ve never been to Portland, but I love Cape Cod! There is amazing food, great beaches (which in September you probably wont be laying out, but could still enjoy a walk!), you can take the ferry over to Nantucket which is beautiful! The Cape has a lot to offer as far as things to do, but is also super relaxing.

    Portland is beautiful. If you have time, I'd take a trip up towards Bar Harbor which is even more spectacular. Arcadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain offer some of the best scenery I've ever seen. Additionally, at the peak of Cadillac Mountain is the first place to witness a sunrise along the eastern seaboard.

    Portland sounds more like what you’re looking for over Cape Cod. It’s also super pet friendly everywhere you go! Reach out to the Airbnb hosts personally even if they list no pets as they often make exceptions if you ask.

    The Cape is a great honeymoon/minimoon spot for couples looking for a quiet romantic getaway. The area is filled with great ways to make memories with your special someone. From a magical visit to Martha’s Vineyard to an intimate stay at a Cape Cod bed and breakfast, there’s no shortage of romantic things to do in the area! Here's a great resource for planning a Cape Cod minimoon:
