You don’t always need to venture down south to have a beach day.
Maine isn’t known for being the beach destination, but it sure is ‘Vacationland’.
During my time in Maine, me and three of my girls that were amazing enough to take the British tourist around, spent spent a day exploring beaches and towns.
Hills Beach in Biddeford Maine is a long stretch of sandy beach. Follow the grassy sand dunes down to the coast and take in the quietness of the coastline and the pine tree views from a distance.
Not only did we sunbathe, but I had the real USA experience with a fire on the beach and had my first ever s’more…
The beach and a bestie can’t get much better!
When the sand and sun gets too much, perhaps take the short drive towards gorgeous Kennebunkport for the cutest shops and bars.
Kennebunkport is a town in in York County, Maine, and is perfect for a little gift shopping and strolling around the port. See masted ships and boats line the panelled – and surprisingly for the USA – quite old buildings. Unsurprisingly though, the town is as charming and gorge as the rest of Maine!
