Do yourself a favor and drive up Route 1 along the gorgeous Maine coastline. You'll know then why the state's earned its reputation as "Vacationland."
Stop along the way if you like, but whatever you do, don't pass up the opportunity to stop off in Bar Harbor for the breathtaking views at Acadia National Park. If you're feeling adventurous, set out to hike Cadillac Mountain. If not, take in the landscape with a table at Jordan Pond House, where lunch comes with a view — and a popover!
