From the iconic lighthouses perched along sparkling bays to Portland’s cobblestone streets boasting award-winning restaurants, Maine offers unique landscapes and experiences for everyone.
Begin your journey with an overnight in the Boston area followed by a comprehensive city tour highlighted by historic Fenway Park. The walking tour of America’s oldest ballpark will bring alive past glories and history. Following some free time at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, enjoy an afternoon ride along Maine’s beautiful coastline. Check in to your award-winning hotel for a five-night stay overlooking the Kennebunk River and a short walk to the resort town of Kennebunkport and Colony Beach.
Day 3 brings us north to Portland and a Casco Bay Cruise to see lighthouses, forts, lobster boats and seals. Visit the Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse Libby House, the nation’s premier showpiece of Victorian architecture. Enjoy some leisure time in Old Port Historic District before heading to Cape Elizabeth for a visit of the Portland Head Lighthouse and Museum, one of America’s oldest and most photographed lighthouses.
The following day you explore Maine’s picturesque southern coast with its quaint seaside villages and historic mansions. In Kennebunkport, see the Wedding Cake House, an over-exuberant version of gingerbread Victorian architecture; visit the Seashore Trolley Museum; and take in the view from Walker’s Point, the longtime summer retreat of George H.W. Bush and family. Later board a working lobster boat to participate in an authentic, hands-on lobster haul. The day is topped off with an authentic lobster clambake.
Enjoy a leisure day to explore on your own, relax or join an optional excursion. Finally, visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens filled with impressive landscapes, waterfalls and stonework with a waterfront and woodland trails all set on 270 acres. Then explore picturesque Boothbay Harbor with its quaint shops and restaurants, and long home to fishermen and sea captains
