Nestled in the northeastern corner of the United States, Maine is a destination that captivates travelers with its rugged coastline, charming small towns, and natural splendor. Discover the hidden gems of Maine in this blog (and Maine!)


Begin your adventure in Portland. 

Portland, Maine, Portland Lighthouse

From mouth-watering restaurants to epic lighthouses to a booming craft brew scene, Maine’s main coastal city of Portland just may have it all. It’s casual, yet trendy. It’s impressive, yet doesn’t try too hard. It is a city of many layers—it’s a seaport, historical hub and cultural hotspot all rolled into one.

The Portland Head Light, a historic lighthouse standing tall against the crashing waves, offers a stunning view, which perfectly captures the essence of Maine's coast.




Drive along scenic Route 1, venturing deeper into the heart of Maine.

Camden, Maine, Harbor

The coastal drive has picturesque views of rocky shores, azure waters, and charming fishing villages. The town of Camden, with its postcard-worthy harbor and majestic Mount Battie as a backdrop, is awesome. A hike to the summit of Mount Battie will reward a panoramic view that stretches over the Camden Hills State Park and out to the distant islands dotting Penobscot Bay.






No trip to Maine is complete without experiencing its famed lobster industry.

Rockland, Maine, Famed Lobster Festival

In the picturesque village of Rockland, visit the Maine Lobster Festival, during the 1 st week of August, where the scent of freshly boiled lobster fills the air. Watching the lobstermen at work and indulging in a traditional lobster bake gives you a newfound appreciation for this culinary delight. 





Bar Harbor, the gateway to Acadia National Park, beckons.

Cadillac Summit in Acadia National Park in Maine.

Exploring Acadia's diverse landscapes is a highlight to any trip. From hiking the rugged trails of Cadillac Mountain to biking along the Carriage Roads, you can enjoy the park's natural beauty.

The charming town of Kennebunkport, with its historic architecture and idyllic beaches, feels like a step back in time. While strolling along the Dock Square try sampling fresh clam chowder at a local eatery.

Inland, explore the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, a remote and pristine region perfect for canoeing and camping. The tranquility of the waterway is a stark contrast to the bustling coastal towns, offering a serene escape into the heart of nature.
