Coastal Maine 1st Visit in June - itinerary advice

freshlycured | May 10, 2013 06:03 AM

My wife and are thrilled to be vacationing up and down Coastal Maine at the end of June. I think, overall, I have a pretty solid dining schedule figured out for our first visit, but there are still some holes and questions. Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thursday - Driving up to Portland from CT in the morning. Would like to grab a lobster roll for lunch once we hit Maine. Any great stops south of Ogunquit? Dinner that night at Fore Street.

Friday - Planning on doing the Culinary Walking Tour in Portland that AM. If anybody has done it, is it worth it and will I still be hungry when it's over? If so, I'm thinking about Miyake for lunch and then heading up toward Mid-Coast. We don't know where we're staying that night, but have a reservation at Primo.

Saturday/Sunday - This is the big question on the trip. We'll be staying in Bar Harbor both nights, but I haven't read about many options that really stand out. Havana looks interesting, but any other highlights on the way into town and in Bar Harbor would be very helpful. Casual is always preferred.

Monday - Trip gets goofy as we drive back to Portland that AM to meet up with my parents and our 2 kids. Was thinking Eventide for lunch. From there, we're spending the next couple of days in Ogunquit. We'll probably hit Clam Shack in Kennebunkport and a couple of the Ogunquit lobster shacks. We'll have a kitchen there . . . are their any recommended shops to pick up supplies if we actually feel like cooking?

Thanks again for any suggestions.
