Hi Mary,We hosted a small leadership meeting in Portsmouth, NH last year. Although we are located in MA, we did have a handful of attendees flying in. Without traffic, Portsmouth is really only an hour from Logan Airport. The city is very walk-able with lots of great restaurants. If this is a higher-end meeting, I would suggest Wentworth by the Sea - It's right outside Portsmouth but a great hotel.Salem, MA is also very popular in October - full of foliage and decorated for Halloween. It can be busy on the weekends, but if it's a mid-week meeting it shouldn't be too bad.
