Trip Ideas: Maine Lobster

Quintessential beach communities line the white sand beaches along Maine’s southern coast. Lighthouses dot the shore; luxury resorts and inns share stunning views with beachfront cottages and lobster shacks. Enjoy abundant recreation, from swimming, surfing and sailing, to kayaking, hiking, biking and golf. Bird watchers, art lovers and seafood connoisseurs find many reasons to return, year after year.

Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise


Stop at HB Provisions or Kitchen Chicks Cafe for breakfast or a coffee to go in Lower Kennebunk Village
