Portland, ME - The Underestimated Romantic Getaway
I know all about romantic getaways. My boyfriend, Sébastien, is from France so there is no doubt about my knowledge of romance. Other than the already obvious Paris getaway, there are way too many romantic getaways to count. Sometimes its good to look beyond the obvious, and check out some less than well-known destinations.
Located in the south of Maine, the coast of Portland is only 2 hours from Boston.
For 3 days, you and your partner could survive on a $400 budget if your traveling from the east coast.
Winter is best for nearby snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, hunting, hiking, and relaxing in nature.
Summer is great to enjoy the luxurious beaches, extensive outdoor activities, and cheap lobster!
Things to Do?
Other than lobster, Portland is one of the best cities in the country for foodies! In fact, Portland has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the U.S. (other than San Francisco).
So long story short, if you're on a budget or looking to splurge and want to stray away from the typical Groupon style romantic getaways- Portland, ME may be your best option.
