Scarborough Beach State Park
If you have the time and patience to deal with tourist traffic, take route 1 and you will just find all sorts of quaint Maine towns (think Murder She Wrote comes alive – without the murder rate of that shithole cabot cove).
I am from Scarborough originally, so I have a soft spot for it. It is just outside of Portland, but my favoritebeach (Scarborough beach) is there.
Definitely make the trip to Freeport and Portland. While you are in Freeport go to Wolfe’s Neck State Park. It’s a beauty!
Eat lots of wonderful seafood (DIMILLOS IS A TOURISTTRAP, don’t bother). Plenty of other good seafood places. Have fun!!!
