Summer Inn Maine

August 10th, 2009 by Mariah

If you are on Vacation in Maine be sure to stay in Camden. It is one of the cutest little coastal towns I have visited…Camden, Maine is alive with New England charm and hospitality. Great shopping, fine dining, and plenty to do and see makes Camden an ideal place to stop and stay while visiting Maine.


Bar Harbor – Acadia is also another great place to see and a must on my list of Maine towns. It is located on Mount Desert Island, and lovelingly known by the locals as Bah Hahbah, this region of Maine Coast is an absolute ‘must see’ destination. Acadia National Park offers miles of scenic trails, and the small towns offer top-notch shopping and dining.

Kennebunkport is in the southern part of the State…nestled between The Kennebunk River and Atlantic Ocean, Kennebunkport is an elegant historical waterfront village, steeped in fine gift shops, jewelry and clothing boutiques, art galleries, and some of the finest restaurants in New England.

There are also many Regions of Maine that are beautiful…
