Growing up, I spent my summers in Maine.
By that, I mean waitressing at the local fried seafood restaurant earning tip money for college. I love the coast of Maine. The ice cream is creamier, the beaches more idyllic, and the locals have a salty but heartfelt demeanor. It also has a food scene that goes beyond boiled lobster and popcorn shrimp.
However, once school lets out it becomes Bu-ZEE! Even though there’s always room for your blanket on the beach, the time between April to June is a perfect, crowd-free time to go (and the locals won’t hate me for giving away “our” spots).
