    Default Maine!

    Hi Everyone,

    Off topic - travelling to Maine from Toronto at the beginning of August. I was wondering if anyone was from Maine (or knows Maine) to suggest a nice resort, or hotel, and especially the nicer beaches.

    It's a family trip with our two year old son who loves the beach.

    Any suggestions are very very welcome and appreciated!

    Default Maine beach

    Reid State Park is a beautiful Maine beach and hopefully I posted the links correctly for you!

    i guess it depends on how much cash you are willing to part with

    kennebunkport has a beautiful beach, but is expensive to stay there

    if you go a bit further north towards bath, there is popham beach state park, and that is one of the nicest main beaches i have been to. you could stay in bath and drive to the beach (about 20 minutes)

    Default how funny

    Actually, we too will be in Maine, the second week in August, staying in Georgetown, which is where Reid State Park is. You will LOVE it. Are you looking to camp or for more hotel like digs? We rented a house back in February, and prices are steep for hotels and such. Do you have a budget? Stay near Portland, inland more near a lake, there are so many choices. I've got great links if you need them. Avoid Rockland the first week in August due to the lobster fest and probably no place to stay.

    Hi gang - thanks for your comments!

    We've actually found a hotel/inn that is family friendle on Goose Rocks Beach which is apparently nice (we hope! any comments on this beach?) in Kennebunkport.

    Can't wait - will bring my ATT book just in case I decode something for pook that says "Goose Rocks Beach Kennebunkport Maine"
