Before planning your summer travel in 2020, you should definitely take a look at any restrictions that might be in place, since some states have strict self-quarantine rules and those rules are changing on a daily basis. Now, all that being said, we think Maine should be your #1 choice for a summertime getaway!
Why, you might ask? We'll tell you!
1. By its very nature, Maine is socially distanced. It's almost like we invited the phrase. There's plenty of open space here to enjoy nature, breathe in the fresh air, and take in your beautiful surroundings without totally bursting you and your loved ones' germ bubble.
2. Maine is absolutely famous for its perfect summertime weather, and there are plenty of outdoor dining establishments taking advantage of this precious commodity. Planning a beach picnic, an outdoor bbq, or a stroll in a nearby park is a breeze thanks to all the options in close proximity.
3. We've got the most scenic spots! One of our fave places for any Maine tourist to see is Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, where you can take in the gorgeous views of the most photographed lighthouse in the world: Portland Head Light - and yes, it's open! Pack a lunch and take a seat somewhere along the cliff walk for incredible views you'll never forget.
4. Finally, Maine is an unforgettable foodie destination! If food travel's your thing, greater Portland, Maine is absolutely for you. Lobster rolls, the freshest of seafood, and of course - WHOOPIE PIES! Topping our list of things to do on your summertime road trip to Maine is stopping here at Cape Whoopies at 185 Cottage Road, South Portland, ME to pick up our 2020 Summer Whoopie Pie Assortment. A dozen delicious Maine whoopie pies in assorted summertime flavors? You can thank us later!
Happy (and safe) travels to you and yours this summer!
