Making the Romantic Getaway in Maine List!

So much fun to make the VacationIdea list of beautiful places for a romantic weekend vacation in Maine.  Add to the romance and plan ahead a few things to do while you are here with us. From the simple to the extravagant we have plenty of ideas to offer you. Keep things easy and pick up some nibbles at Maine Street Meats, located inside the State of Maine Cheese Company on Route One in Rockport where you'll also be able to score some local wine, beer, or cider. Walk or hike any of the many spectacular view sheds in the Camden Hills State Park. Push a bit further by renting a kayak from the best place in the area, Ducktrap Kayak. Lake, river or ocean, Dan can point the way to a romantic spot to pull ashore. We love paddling out to Curtis Island Lighthouse, pictured below. Amp up your game with drinks and nibbles at the Slipway's new satellite restaurant in Camden harbor (the only harborside dining with a western view) followed by a stroll up to Whitehall for some after dinner drinks and shuffleboard at their outdoor firepit and patio scene. Hit it out of the park with a sunset cruise aboard the Olad and finish up with a meal at the unparalleled Francine's Bistro.
