2021 Official Maine Camping Guide - 86

Cruising Through Maine:
You Can (Really) Get There From Here

COPYRIGHT KENNEBEC VALLEY REGIONAL TOURISM

A

merica begins its day in Maine. It's a statement
denoting that ours is the first state to see the sun -
the state motto Dirigo translates as " I Lead. " Spend a
little time here though, and you might just spy the myriad
small ways that put us ahead of other places, ways that have
kept generations past - and will keep generations to come -
enthralled with the almost indescribable beauty and broad
diversity of experiences to be had in our magnificent state.

Cities & Towns: Kittery, York, Ogunquit, Wells, Kennebunk,
Kennebunkport, Old Orchard Beach, Biddeford, Saco and
Sanford
Roads & Highways: I-95, US1 & 1A, Rt. 9, Rt. 202, Rt. 11, Rt.
4, Rt. 103
Notable Features: The Nubble Light, Ogunquit Playhouse,
Funtown/Splashtown,Palace Playland, York Wild Kingdom,
Saco Drive-in, sunset cruises and whale watching

So no matter where you choose to watch the sun's rays peak
over the horizon: from a rocky Down East outcropping up
near West Quoddy (yes Down East is " up " ), atop Mount Katahdin at the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, or
marveling its quiet spectacle while collecting shells along
the tide line at York Beach, your days spent in Maine will
leave you yearning to return for many, many more.

Greater Portland & Casco Bay
Wandering north along US1, I-295 or on Rt. 202 from interior
parts of the state will bring you into the " big city scene " of
Portland. Set high upon a peninsula overlooking the southern corner of Casco Bay, Portland's urbane but friendly inhabitants may sometimes seem a little too relaxed, but they
are just a part of the scene. It's these touches that add character and make this welcoming city worthy of deeper exploration. Morning, noon or night, there is something happening along its cobbled side streets, broad avenues and salty
old wharves. Shoppers, foodies and people watchers alike
should start in the Old Port or up along Congress Street to
find the keys to the delights of this fun and funky town. Looking for the offbeat? Visit Munjoy Hill or the Arts District and
make sure to set aside time to savor the collection at the
Portland Museum of Art or any of the city's many galleries.
When night falls, you can just as easily catch any of a dozen
performances as you would a fly ball at the game - from
chamber music at Merrill Auditorium to a touring act at The
State Theater or Seadogs baseball at Hadlock Field.Got a little
time on your hands? Explore the islands of Casco Bay by ferry
or take a drive through the many welcoming communities
that surround the city. Just to the south seek out the Portland
Head Light on the grounds of Ft. Williams or track down the
" best Lobster Roll ever. " No matter where you wind up, it will
be delicious - this is the heart of lobster central.

The Maine Beaches
Our Maine Beaches are a most welcome way to enter the
state known as Vacationland since 1935. Miles and miles of
sugary sand punctuated by small cities and towns that balloon with visitors looking to capture a few days or maybe a
week or two of perfect summertime bliss. From Kittery to
Old Orchard Beach, the beaches have long been mainstays
of the ideal Maine vacation. Just follow US-1 from the state
line up through some of the nation's oldest communities,
visit cultural enclaves like Ogunquit and the " Kennebunks "
rife with the trappings of any major American city: museums, caf├ęs, brewpubs and boutiques. Spend a little time at
Old Orchard Beach under the dazzling lights of our oceanfront amusement park. Each step you take here, whether
through the history of York, the natural beauty of the Rachel
Carson Wildlife Refuge, the cool wooded splendor of Sanford, shopping at Kittery or spending a little time along the
main streets of Saco and Biddeford, will have you curious
about what more there is to see here in Maine.
