Top Reasons to Go

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 New England-style hot-dog bun (opens on top).

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-mile road to the 1,530-foot summit in Acadia National Park for the sunrise.

Perfect Souvenir: Buy a watercolor, hand-painted pottery, or handcrafted jewelry—artists and craftspeople abound.

Ice Cream: Summer in Maine means ice cream. Stop at one of the many stands selling Maine-made Gifford's, or savor homemade at a storefront ice cream parlor: you can't go wrong.
