Back in December, we flew to Boston to visit family and decided to make a stop in Portland, Maine. It's just a little over two hours from the city, an easy drive up 95 (complete with "Moose Crossing" signs), and we arrived just in time to celebrate my 28th birthday.
We checked into a historic hotel in the old part of downtown, then headed to Eventide for lobster rolls and champagne. The next morning, we did a bit of shopping and then drove across the bridge to see the lighthouse and putter around the grounds.
We were able to see most of the sights in the short time we were there, but I wish we could have stayed longer and soaked up the charm of the small town. We stopped in Kennebunkport on the way home for clam chowder, fish 'n' chips, and local cider.
