Honeymooning In the State of Maine
Your wedding day will be the most memorable day of your life, and you want the honeymoon to be just as special and romantic. If you and your new husband are not the types to lounge about on tropical beaches sipping fruity drinks, consider honeymooning in Maine.
Main is “Vacationland” and it lives up to that name by offering so many exciting and relaxing options to travelers who come to stay. You won’t find palm trees and surfboards, but you will find something more beautiful and comfortable for your honeymoon. Maine offers picturesque shorelines dotted with cozy fishing villages and majestic lighthouses. In summer the beaches are warm enough to swim and play in the surf, and the autumn foliage is stunning to behold. Choose a quaint bed and breakfast inn for the most romantic honeymoon destination.
Active couples who love to hike and explore will love the breathtaking views in Acadia National Park, visiting one of the many clean and picturesque lakes, such as Sebago or Long Lake or visiting any number of antique shops in the friendly towns. Have a taste for more happening nightlife? Bangor and Portland are busy cities that never-the-less maintain the casual and laid back feel Maine has to offer.
Bar Harbor, Main is one option for a pleasant honeymoon trip. On this island, you will have plenty of room to explore nature and enjoy peaceful tranquility as you spend your first days together as man and wife. Privacy abounds to add to the romantic feel of the area. Several inns offer honeymoon packages to new brides and grooms who visit the area.
Clefstone Manor, built in 1884, is a gorgeous mansion that provides champagne and a gift basket with a three night honeymoon stay.
