We are seniors planning a trip to the area later in the year. The only non-stop flight from our home town (Portland, OR) is to Boston. Do NOT want to rent a car at Logan and drive on freeways. Our primary destination is Maine...have been to VT; NH, MA, and CT on previous trips.
Thinking we would like to take taxi to a nice town north ($50-$60 cab ride OK), where we can spend the night, rent a car, and then drive up the coast for a few nights in Maine. We would return to whatever town we rented the car in, then taxi back to Logan.
Salem comes to mind, but open to other suggestions. Someplace scenic and historic, and easy to get to U.S. 1. Are there rental cars available in Salem (or another suitable town)
