THE WORLD IS A BOOK, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY ONE PAGE. - ST. AUGUSTINE

Beautiful views, fresh seafood, and a gentle sea salt breeze will help you relax during your visit to the Maine coast.

 

STAY IN MAINE

I'm lucky to have family along the Maine coast, so when we visit we stay with them in their charming, New England digs. There are no shortages of places to stay, though. Bed + Breakfasts, Inns, and Cottages line the coast, giving you ample opportunity for spectacular views during your stay in Maine. I'd recommend staying in Rockland, Rockport, or Camden, or trying one of the great spots on Mount Desert Island (Bar Harbor).
