My family has lots of interests, so all suggestions are welcome!  We love hiking, museums, concerts, festivals, beaches, cities, small towns, historical sites...and the list goes on and on.

    North Conway, NH is about 2 hours from Boston.  Hiking, Mountain Climbing in the spring summer and fall and both downhill and xc skiing in the winter.  There is a fairly new RI in town and some decent restaurants.  Be sure to check out the Blueberry Muffin for breakfast.

      I've heard good things about North Conway from others, too.  The fall colors must be very impressive up there.

        Maine coast is great and coming back down stay at wentworth inn just north of Portsmouth. Keenebuckport would be a good place to stay on maine coast and if you go have the seafood chowder at the maine dinner in Wells

    So many choices:  Stowe, VT; Portland, ME; Salem, Cape Cod, Newport, New Bedford, Kinnebunkport, MA; and if you're venturing further North, Nova Scotia

    You might consider light house tour throughout the N.E., such as these in South Portland.

    We're scheduled to go to Saratoga Springs later this month.  There appears to be lots to do and see there even if the racetrack isn't open.      I'll write a review after we return.

    So many great suggestions here! I'm a true New Englander and have lived in the Northeast for most of my life. While there is beauty everywhere, I have to say the summers are for the coast line.  So many great little tourist towns with tons to do.  My favorite little lesser known destination is Rockport, MA. It is a very quaint town with cute shops,great eats and wonderful, quiet beaches.
