In a previous post (Delaware Blog Post), I mentioned the EZ Pass. Maine has tollbooths throughout the state that take the EZ Pass. So, if you’ll be traveling through the Mid-Atlantic / Northeast along I-95, you might want to think about getting an EZ Pass to save time.
Our first stop in Maine was the Nubble Light (or Cape Neddick Light Station) in York. I love lighthouses and this one didn’t disappoint. The lighthouse itself is not accessible to the public, but it can be photographed from Sohier Park that overlooks this picturesque lighthouse.
We checked out the quaint shops and cafes. One such café had a chocolate blueberry latte called the Mainer that was DIVINE! It was SO GOOD! Have I ever found another chocolate blueberry latte as good? NO! Have I been looking for another chocolate blueberry latte ever since – ABSOLUTELY! Yummy! While in Kennebunkport, we ate lunch at the Clam Shack. I remember getting a little of everything and everything was wonderful! HOWEVER, word to the wise: do not eat a lot of the fried stuff no matter how good the clams are, okay?! I made myself sick. I just couldn’t take that much fried food all at once.
We spent the night in Saco. There wasn’t anything special about it, but there was a nice Hampton Inn there with very friendly staff. They told us about a place where locals go for a lobster dinner (you know the places that only have Maine license plates in the parking lot). It was so YUMMY and came complete with lobster bibs! Can I remember where we ate? Nope. Sorry. You’ll just have to find your own locals-only place for lobster in Maine.
From there it was time to keep exploring through the New England states and head west to New Hampshire. The leaves were breathtaking throughout our entire New England road trip. I’d love to go back in the fall and see the leaves changing again and see a bunch of other places I’ve learned about since then. In my next post, I’ll list those places that I’d like to go see on my next trip to the majestic state of Maine.
