I love Maine so, so much. I’ve visited the state my whole life, from being a camp counselor at a science camp for girls, to driving the coastal route from Portland to Acadia and to even traveling all the way up to Lubec, the easternmost town in the U.S. It’s an incredibly gorgeous place, and huge, so I recommend not trying to conquer it all at once. For the foodie, Portland is a great place to start, what with its ever expanding food and craft beer scene. And if you love the outdoors, Acadia is not to be missed. I’ve divided my recs into two parts – Portland and places you’ll hit as you drive North along the coast.
