Top Reasons to Go to Maine
Perfection on a Bun: It's not a Maine vacation without sampling the "lobster roll," lobster with a touch of mayo nestled in a buttery grilled hot-dog bun.
Boating: The coastline of Maine was made for boaters. Whether it's your own boat, a friend's or a charter, make sure you get out on the water.
Wild Maine Blueberries: They may be tiny, but the wild blueberries pack a flavorful punch in season (late July to early September).
Cadillac Mountain: Drive the winding 3½-mi road to the 1,530-foot summit in Acadia National Park for the sunrise.
Perfect Souvenir: Buy a watercolor, hand-painted pottery, or a handcrafted jewelry—artists and craftspeople abound.
Ice Cream: Summer in Maine means ice cream. Dig into a pint of Gifford's or stop by a homemade ice cream stand: you can't go wrong.
