Travelogue: Roadtrip to Maine (Day 1)

20140728_192757

We started driving early in the morning. From Boston to Maine was a bit of a drive, so I planned a few stops along the way.

First, we drove to the Merrimack Outlets for some tax-free shopping in New Hampshire. We spent about an hour+ there (didn’t find anything good) and moved on to our next stop: Kennebunkport.

Such a cute little town! It’s a fishing harbor and seaside tourist attraction.

We stopped in at Mabel’s Lobster Claw for lunch.

We got a lobster and crab roll. I really enjoyed the crab part, more than the lobster part.

and the lobster Milanese with shrimp coming out of the lobster… what a sight!

There’s ample street parking around the area, and we parked right across the street. Love outdoor seating!

Rococo artisan ice cream was high on my list, since I LOVE homemade unique ice cream flavors.

This was the best ice cream I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a lot of ice cream.

I love their real mint — it’s not your typical artificial mint flavoring and coloring. There are real mint leaves inside! Sweet cream was also amazing. I got both flavors in a cup for less than 5 dollars.

It’s a small place, grab a scoop and sit outside or take a stroll. They’re really friendly and will give you samples if you ask nicely!

This was something I read about but seeing in person felt a bit… serendipitous. Love locks on a bridge.

There was so much to see in this quaint little town, but we had to drive to our next destination.

Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth.

The classic lighthouses-along-cliffs postcard scenery.

This park is free and has a few routes for you to explore. There’s a cliff walk and an abandoned mansion!
