Maine MidCoast Vacation

Overview

Quote:
We arrived by car in the afternoon at the beautiful Samoset Resort. Friends from home arrived later that night, also by car. The guys spent their mornings playing golf at some beautiful and challenging courses. We girls shopped in Rockland, Boothbay Harbor, and Camden. We happened to be there on the day of the Rockland Garden Club Annual House and Garden Tour. At .00 this is not to be missed. We visited some of the most incredible houses we have ever seen.

Moody's Diner

Restaurant

Quote:
Moody's is a locally popular, diner-style restaurant best known for daily specials that focus on true, home-made 'comfort' foods! Some examples are turkey potpie, meatloaf, and American chop suey! Wonderful pies for dessert. Portions are large; prices are cheap. Go early; there's always a crowd, comprised of locals and tourists!

Cappy's Chowder House

Restaurant | "Cappy's"

Quote:
Cappy's is famous for its wonderful clam chowder. Creamy, loaded with tender clams, it's the perfect snack on a cool, damp day!

Located just one block off the waterfront, the restaurant's building is cozy and comfortable. It's worth the trip.

Note: Be sure to look for the dead seagull!
