For beautiful sandy beaches, great lobster and amazing seascapes, the Maine coastline is hard to beat – especially for families.
While it is crowded in summer, fans of 11.2km-long Old Orchard beach would have it no other way. Quiet sands fringe the outskirts, but Old Orchard is famed for its beachside amusement park and historic pier.
