With its rugged coastline, quaint fishing villages and mountainous interior, Maine is the classic New England landscape. From the craft breweries and bookshops of Portland to the puffins and sea life of the Acadia National Park, this is the place to get your fill of fresh-off-the-boat lobster, unctuous clam chowder and locally-brewed beer. Just head to the mountains first to build up an appetite.
After all that lobster, take a bracing walk along a strikingly beautiful beach, head inland to hike through lush pine forested hills, past sparkling streams and granite peaks or explore the boutiques and galleries of a sleepy town before searching out the freshest oysters as the sun dips into the ocean.
