A few of our favorite spots in Maine are definitely worth passing on to you.

best-of-maine

Booth Bay Harbor, Maine

Best Popcorn and gifts: Coastal Maine Popcorn — great for snacks and gifts
Best lobster lunch: Fisherman’s Wharf Inn – one of the best places to enjoy the freshest Maine lobster and the beautiful views of the harbor.
Best family-friendly adventure: Balmy Days Cruises — my boys (all three of them) had a great time on cruising the Booth Bay Harbor and surrounding area on The Bay Lady, a Friendship sail boat. (I don’t recommend this excursion for kids under age 8.) 
Best steamed clamsMcSeagull’s – known for it’s local nightlife, McSeagull’s keeps its bar open later on a weeknight than many of it’s neighbors. This is where I enjoyed 2 pounds of fresh steamed clams this year
Best art gallery: Abacus Gallery — by far, my favorite art gallery in Maine with something for everyone.

Bowdoin / Topsham, Maine

Best family-friendly brew pubSea Dog Brewing Company — great views, fabulous pub food and original brew-pub beer

Freeport, Maine

Best shopping: LLBean – 24 hour shopping for everything LLBean. We stocked up on backpacks and lunch bags, clothing, toys and travel gear. There’s also tons of distractions for the kids, like a huge fishtank they can put their heads into, knot-tying stations, a playhouse and an enormous chalkboard.
Best lemonade1912 Cafe — inside LLBean, this cafe offers light foods and a casual atmosphere. I love their lemonade station featuring about a half-dozen fresh lemonade flavors.

Augusta, Maine

Best Barbecue Dinner: Riverfront Barbecue — might be the best BBQ we’ve tasted, and it’s in Maine! Bonus, their staff is super-friendly.

Waterville, Maine

Best after-dinner activityGiffords – If you remember Giffords as Rummels, you’ll be happy to know that it’s fun hasn’t changed. Our kids now love the same miniature golf course and batting cages that we enjoyed growing up and we all love the Maine-fresh ice cream flavors (favorites include Smore’s, Moose Tracks, Peppermint and Mountain Blueberry.)

Dress your FitBit with Tory Burch

Dress your FitBit with Tory Burch

A little over a year ago, I ordered my FitBit One just when the FitBit Flex was about to come out. When friends asked why I didn’t wait for the Flex, I honestly laughed, “I’m just far too accessories-driven to wear a chunk of rubber on my wrist all the time.” While I probably would have been better off with the Flex, for convenience reasons — if it’s on your wrist and not in your pocket, there’s…
