Where to stay on SE Maine coast?
Heading to Maine this weekend with my long time girlfriend. Looking for a little R&R, to do some Christmas shopping, eat and drink well.
We would love to be near the ocean, so that we can walk the beach. Vineyards, good pubs or breweries a definite plus-and we'd also like to head to LL Bean. We'd prefer to stay in the Southeast portion of the state, to keep the drive a decent length. I'm thinking Portland, but I'm unsure of the beaches (or lack thereof).
Sorry to be so specific but we've been hoping to get some time away for a while now! Any suggestions?
