Maine has more miles of coastline for you to explore than any other non-bayou state, including California. Book your trip today to Portland -- accessible by train from Boston -- where you can browse in the shops of cosmopolitan Commercial Street before enjoying a tour of some of Portland’s many craft breweries. Be sure to check out the hip and happening foodie restaurant scene as well; there’s more on local menus than the justifiably famous Maine lobster. For outdoor adventure, find a hotel deal in Bangor, an easy drive from coastal Acadia National Park as well as woodsy Baxter State Park, which includes Mount Katahdin, the end point of the Maine-to-Georgia Appalachian Trail. On your way Down East, get off the highway and spend some time in the beautiful but often overlooked Kennebunk area.
