I am planning my first visit to coastal Maine at the end of June 2013. I will have 5 nights to spend and need help determining the best location. I was thinking of either staying in one spot as a home base or possibly 3 nights in one spot and 2 nights in another. I would like a picturesque spot on the less-touisty side while still having restaurants accesible. We plan on a day trip as far north as Acadia National Park. Any ideas or favorite spots?
I'm planning a trip for Fall 2013. We're coming from near the Buffalo, NY area and don't want to spend 10 hours in the car, so I'm looking at the Southern coastal area of Maine - possibly as far north as Portland/Bath. I'd like to spend 2-3 days in two or three different locations (though with the right location, staying an entire week instead is fine too). We are antique shop lovers and also lobster lovers! Can anyone suggest a few hotels/B&B's, restaurants, towns to visit and any other good info you can share. Thanks so much!
We'll be passing through Portland in late November and would love to get a lobster roll. Anything available then that's good?

My friend and I are planning a camping trip to maine next year. I backpacked in baxter state park 30 years ago and we stayed in lean-tos along the trail. I am wondering if you can plan a trip without a tent and reserve the lean-tos at 5 to 6 mile intervals? Also, any advise on good trails and campsites appreciated. When would be the best time to avoid crowds, but hopefully blackfies too? I'm thinking a 4 - 5 night loop if possible, or stay at one or two camps and do day hikes from there. We would be interested in easy to moderate hikes for the most part.
During July, are there any planned commemorative events planned around the 50th anniversary of the launch of Telstar I and its early successes? I am particularly interested in the first satellite transmission of color TV from Goonhilly, Cornwall in the UK to Andover, Maine, in the US on 17 July 1962, as I plan to be in DC for a Telstar forum on 12 July and would need another couple days to drive to Andover. Thanks for any help which anyone is able to provide.
Currently my itinerary is to drive from Charlotte to DC late on the 11th as I am attending a dinner honoring the amazingly long tenure of my college track and cross country coach that evening. By the time the DC forum is over, I expect to be very tired and would like to get a very good night's rest before heading for what I anticipate to be a wonderful part of Maine which I have not previously visited.
Will be traveling from Sqwam Lake, NH to Maine on Aug. 23rd. So I have from the 23rd till the 28th to tour Maine. We need to return to Boston on the 29th.
I will be traveling with my 19 year old daughter.
We would appreciate an insiders' opinion of what to see, what to give a miss, where to go and where to stay. Any input would be welcomed. We both are adventurous, and outgoing and love to discover new things, eat good and local chow and meet new people.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Planning on a camping trip towards the end of August. We do not have a time schedule. We will be driving from VA taking non interstate as much as possible. We like campgrounds that are not crowded and prefer them to have at least a shower. Looking for tips and pointers of what to see, do and "hole in the wall" non franchised diners. Peace.
