Where to stay in Maine??


I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to help me... My husband and I are travelling to the US in late July. After a week in NY we're heading to Maine, via Boston. Neither of us have been to Maine before, and would love some advice! Ideally we're looking for somewhere with a sandy beach, and as we're both huge foodies, somewhere with great places to eat. We'll hire a car, and would love to get out and about - would really appreciate any great suggestions of towns/ places to stay.

Many thanks,

If you are huge foodies, you'll have to spend some quality dining time in Portland. There are several sandy beaches within driving distance: Crescent Beach State Park, Old Orchard Beach, Ocean Park's beaches and several others.

This will give you a glimpse of Portland:



And here's a look at Old Orchard Beach and the surrounding area:
