South Portland

Casco Bay - The best thing going for boating and water sports in New England. Casco Bay is replete with marinas, island, beaches, ferries, restaurant, guided cruises, old forts, and camping spots. Sailing, boating, lobstering, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and more. We love it....

Great family destination for, beach, sailing and golf with the New England Charm and hidden surprises. Don't forget the Lobster. There was only one reason that I picked Maine and that was simple because I had not been there yet. It was a pleasant surprise! Filled with Clam Shacks, Beach board Walks, State Parks, Night life. On the other hand you can settle for peace and quiet.....

Lobsters, blueberries, moose, and Stephen King are just a few of the things that the United States' northeastern most state is famous for. Maine has a rocky coastline, dense forests, and chilly temperatures. A great summer destination.

Maine reminds me a lot of Wyoming, except that the climate is way different being next to the ocean. It's extremely empty and can feel like no one else lives there. +1 for Lobsters!
