We will be arriving early evening on a Thursday. Staying at HI Express in Seabrook for 3 nights which appears to be close. BUT will definitely need parking suggestions for NBPort. Tried visiting a few years ago but it ended up being a 'drive thru' as we could never find a place to park. I think it was some type of festival with a band, etc. Online I see metered lots but they mention a 2 or 3 hour limit? Do you just re-pay or must you leave the lot? Are beach areas like Plum Island free or paid at the end of Sept / early Oct?
Would enjoy some suggestions on what to do for the 2 full days (Fri / Sat) we will be in NBPort. Lunch spots? Evening meal? Have also considered a short afternoon road trip to Rockport? Marblehead? or Southern Maine. We would be leaving mid-day on Sunday.
We are seniors that enjoy slower paced activities. Scenic walk... Harbor? Beach? Historical homes, Touristy shopping, not outlet style. Thank you.
