The Bar Harbor is a small town in Maine that overlooks the waterfront and is the ultimate summer spot.

Every year Maine’s fisher men catch some of the most delicious lobsters you’ll have in your life. So you’ve got scrumptious food, exciting adventure and soulful music all in one trip on a great date with your special someone in Maine. The White Barn Inn is the only 5-Star restaurant in Maine as rated by Forbes and also a AAA Five Diamond honoree for nearly 20 years now. Enjoy a nice elegant dinner at their restaurant, which was described by Boston Magazine as "achingly romantic."


Maine is also known for its shopping district. With an abundance of antique stores, flea markets, malls and factory outlets, Maine offers the best shopping experience you can handle yielding the best buys. When you’re all tired from shopping and just want to spend some time with your partner, visit the Popham Beach. It’s a must part of your Maine Vacations. It’s one of the longest stretching beaches you’ll find in Maine. You’ll find plenty of couples just strolling in the sand. Because it stretches so long, you’ll easily find a secluded spot to call your own. As you go further along, you’ll find many wooden shacks and barbeque facilities available for you to cook up a nice yummy dinner. And if you enjoy that then also visit the town of Ogunquit. The Marginal way in the Ogunquit Beach is a remarkable tribute to nature. It’s a one-mile long pathway of rocky shores along the coast that continues into the town with whitewashed seaside shops and wooden shacks. It offers the romance of crushing surf and breathtaking views of the ocean along the white sand beach of Ogunquit. The Portland Head Light is another favorite spot for lovers. Walk around or just sit near the shore enjoying the surfs and wind come against the shores. It’s one of the most photographed light houses in the U.S.
