Portland & Coastal Maine

Summer '16 has been all about visiting Maine. I've fallen in love with bits and pieces of this state and make every effort to visit. Super glad my better half has family there and I can always throw in a Maine roadtrip as a long weekend trip idea. What do I love about Maine? Honestly where do I start?! From the scenic, quiet towns to the incredible fresh food, there is no shortage of amazing and beautiful moments to be made. Planning a fall visit? I'll tell you where to go and what to eat!

PORTLAND

Eat at: Eventide Oyster Co. for the brown butter lobster roll. This is a MUST.  Honeypaw for unique Asian Fusion eats like the lamb khao soi noodles, fry bread with uni butter, and honey soft serve ice cream. Street & Co. for the lobster linguini. Boda for late night Thai food. 

Go sailing with Maine Sailing Adventures. Reserve through their website and pick your choice of sail. The acoustic or wine sails are great! Spend 2 hours on the water with good drinks and good people.

Watch the boats and the sunset on Eastern Promenade.

KENNEBUNKPORT

My favorite little town in Maine! 

Eat at the famous Clam Shack on the bridge. 

Take photos of the scenic views and enjoy a piece of New England. 

FREEPORT

Shop the Freeport outlet shops, particularly the 24-hour LL Bean Flagship Store, spanning several buildings for home, hunting, fishing, camping. Eat at their very own lobster shack too!

Reid State Park in Georgetown, Maine was a great spot for beach, lake, and camping grounds. It is absolutely stunning here, go!
